Uninstall iTunes completely and then reinstall a new copy


If you want to uninstall iTunes completely so as to reinstall a new copy then you need to remove several other Apple programs in a particular order. Let’s go through this tutorial for further details.


This entire process takes almost 30 minutes. In case, you are going as per the instructions given on Apple Support site to remove and reinstall iTunes then it will not include one other Apple program that needs to be uninstall. This program is iCloud. Uninstalling iTunes on Mac OS X is a bit trickier. After following the steps, you will find some iTunes remnants.
If you don’t have an iOS device recognized by iTunes then Apple suggests you to remove and reinstall the Apple Mobile Device Service.
In the Control Panel, go to “Programs and Features” and open Uninstall/Change option. For easy access to this, you can press Windows key plus E that takes you to File Explorer windows with “Uninstall or change a program” at the top.

According to Apple Support, it identifies five programs that you have to remove in the following sequence:
·         iTunes
·         Apple Software Update
·         Apple Mobile Device Support
·         Bonjour
·         Apple Application Support
Furthermore, you have to uninstall the iCloud Control panel.

Restart the PC after uninstalling these six Apple programs and check that the following folders have been deleted:
·         C:\Program Files\Bonjour
·         C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\
·         C:\Program Files\iTunes\
·         C:\Program Files\iPod\

After deleting these folders, restart the PC and install the latest version of iTunes. Also, you can find some ghost entries in your new iTunes installation. So, press Ctrl-A to highlight those entries and then hit “Delete.”
Congrats, you have successfully installed the new version of iTunes. For more from the XpertCrewTM team, please follow us on Twitter @Techvedic or contact Techvedic’s computer support helpdesk, as per below contact-details:
