The only way I can use my Vista PC after updating iTunes to 126.96.36.199 is to start in safe mode.
I have tried a normal startup but after accepting my password the blue ring progress gif just goes round and round ad-infinitum whilst there is very occasionally just the merest flash from the HDD activity light.
Control-Alt-Delete, and Esc have no effect what so ever.
How can I get my PC working again?
Thanks Woolwell, tried to respond on my other PC running Linux but couldn't log in as I had forgotten my details! lol
Meanwhile I had left the machine after "Logging-in" to my account and after five and a half minutes it achieved a black screen.....a further two minutes and I had a desktop of sorts... it looked like a Rubik's cube, there were 4 sections none of which matched!
after several more minutes all seems to have returned to normal, though I have a cryptic message from "57xx Steel Vine Manager" that says "Could not connect to 'localhost'.port 51116"....no idea what that means.
Dare not try a re-start just yet but will attempt to open a few programmes to see if anything unexpected happens!
