    When I downloaded 32bit version of iTunes all my desktop icons and all my start icons changed to iTunes logo and shortcuts all want to open iTunes.

    When I uninstall iTunes and reboot computer it fixes problem but I want to use itunes so can update my iphone.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many thanks:confused:

    If you're still having trouble after installing iTunes again, download THIS.

    Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

    Restart the computer.

    If the fix only opens as a text file (in Notepad), right-click the file (before opening it) and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.
