    I'll make up a separate post on the latter part of the above subject but briefly following the iTunes 10.5 upgrade and going to iOS5, I have lost all my contacts from MS Office on the devices plus iTunes will neither load nor run on my Windows 7 64 bit OS.

    I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, waded through the registry getting rid of anything called iTunes, followed all the Google advices but there is no way I can get Itunes to work any more.

    I have created another User but still the same problem.

    When I click on iTunes, for the millionith of a second I can see a small menu saying something like iTunes is configuring for the install process but this disappears too quickly to read.

    Tried Safe Mode, everything, nothing.

    After I thought I had rid the OS of iTunes, I tried to download and install 4.3.3 but it kept saying that a newer vesion of iTunes is still installed - obviously there is a file fragment somewhere I can't find.

    How can I FULLY rid myself of the latest iTunes and revert to an older version?

    I have spent days on this one and until I can get iTunes up and running, it is a waste of time trying fix the Apple devices with their own weird problems.

    If I tried to create a different the path for the installation of iTunes, would this work I wonder?

    I'm beaten but from Googling everywhere I know I am not the only one out there with this problem.

    Thanks
