    I keep getting this error...

    "Could not write value iTunes Helper to key \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel."

    whenever I try to install...I looked in Program Files and there is no iTunes folder...

    I looked in msconfig and ituneshelper is running...

    How do I reinstall iTunes 1.8.1 with success? It was working fine yesterday. And when It asked me to update I did, but I got iPod Service Not Found or not working..

    the other error message I get after I hit Ignore on the one above is this...

    iPod Service is not under services or something like that. I don't get it...I have tried several things...iPod services not found on startup...

    It is so Frustrating Please help me fix this.

    I get these ERROR Messages...

    Could Not write value Quicktime Task to Key\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. (Verify you have sufficent rights to that key.

    Could not write value iTunesHelper to key\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    Service "iPod Service' (iPod Service) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficent privledges

    It happens with these errors when itunes or Quicktime or ANYTHING tries to write to the registry...Not because of Nod32 or Comodo.

    Tried iTunes + Quicktime and I also tried Standalone versions of itunes and Quicktime same errors.

    Are you a Administrator? You need admin right to write to HKLM areas.
    Check in Control Panel, User Accounts.
    It should display 'Administrator' under your user id.
    If you are, then something has changed permissions in registry, run Regedit, goto the key affected, and select Edit, Permissions to view/change permissions.
