"Data area passed to a system call is too small"

  timepink 19:22 21 Oct 2018


It has been a few weeks that I'm not able to open iTunes or any other Apple service anymore due to the "data area passed to a system call is too small" error. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, to no avail. I searched for solutions on Google, but none were specific to iTunes and, as such, none worked so far. What is the reason for this error and how do I fix it? My OS is a Windows 10 Home x64.

Thank you in advance!

I figured that the two softwares that were causing trouble (iTunes and related apps, and Dell SupportAssist) were both installed through Windows Store. I uninstalled both and installed iTunes through a separate installer. It worked. I restarted the OS and it is still working. I didn't tried it with other one, since I don't need it anymore. So, as of now, I'm good.

Thanks for the feedback; my laptop is a Dell with built in support and I have iTunes so will keep an eye on it
