Windows 7: Man, this is one of those sucky installs. Don't know what is going on.

MS Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
Man, this is one of those sucky installs. Don't know what is going on.

Did a clean reinstall using Rufus on a USB stick. Picked up nasty spyware/adware that I couldn't seem to get rid of so I tried a second reinstall but now it won't boot from the USB anymore, even after redoing Rufus. Ended up using the Win 7 install disk followed by hours of updates.

Went to install iTunes and got two errors during the install. Something about apple mobile installation failed, then after ignoring that got another, something about apple support services install failed. Message said to uninstall iTunes before it even finished installing.

Everything else seems to be working fine. Security Essentials and Malwarebytes says everything is ok. I uninstalled iTunes and thinking I should just reinstall Win 7 again. I just wish I could get the USB stick to work again.

Well; to get support for itunes; go to the support section of applie's support page and search for the error(s) you are getting. You should also be able to find something on the errors by searching google.
