loads of issues since iTunes updated itself to v5. Initially it kept failing during installation. and it changed the IP Address of my DNS server.
I found out that the installation problem was linked to QuickTime, so I found a copy of iTunes 4.9 on line (from a link in another thread) and installed that. When launching the program it grumbles that QuickTime isn't installed, so I found a copy of QuickTime 6.5 online (Apples Quicktime link just takes you to iTunes 5) and installed that.
Now whenever I try to fire up iTunes I get this error "QuickTime failed to initialize. Error # -2095. Make sure QuickTime is properly installed on this computer".
This is seriously p***ing me off now. What have Apple done to cock up a perfectly good program so much. If they can't manage to write a simple media player, how come their OS is so good, or is that all a myth perpetrated by people who can't bear to own up to the fact that their overpriced computers are not actually that good after all!
You could always try a system restore back to when itunes was fine and deny it the opportunity to update itself. There's obviously a few bugs in the program judging by the number of posts about it of late.
I did that and it didn't work, this is probably because the new version over-wrote the old version, not just the registry settings. System restore only seems to back up registry settings, not programs.
