Ok, so the other night whilst my PC was installing updates whilst shutting down, we had a brief power cut.
The next morning i turned on my PC to find that System was corrupt, so i popped in my Restore DVD, chose 'Restore what was originally on this PC' aka keep everything that was put on since the way it was.
Once this was complete, I restarted my computer and all looked normal and in working order as it was before.
I updated to the newer editions of Internet Explorer & Windows Media Player and checked that everything was in working order and set about opening my iTunes.
To my suprise as soon as i double-clicked, i got this message; iTunes has encountered a problem and needs to close, error report blah blah blah.
So i un-installed iTunes, and set about re-installing it.
I kept being told iTunes needs quicktime (which was supposed to be included in the iTunes download anyway :/ but still)
So i tried installing QuickTime seperatly. Suprise, suprise it wasn;t all that simple. I was told 'Fatal Error During Installation' and after several attempts i gave up. After browsing through various sites like yourself i found that this was a common problem, i followed advise and deleted all traces of QuickTime from my registry, and then tried re-installing Quicktime, Hazaar it worked!
Then, i tried installing iTunes again, Wow it worked
i breathed a sigh of relief that all was well, i clicked on iTunes, but...
"Duh" iTunes has encountered a problem and needs to close. Error Report blah blah blah.
I am at the end of my teather here people, trying to keep calm, but i am reluctant to try un-installing iTunes & Quicktime for a third time if it won't get me anywhere.
Anyone had the same problem or can solve it for me?
it seriously would make my day.
