I'm at the end of my tether here, I've been trying to install iTunes 6.0 on Windows XP SP2 and getting the error -3. So, I tried the standalone Quicktime installer as recommended on this forum and I get the 1722 error.

I've followed all the recommendations for fixing the 1722 error:
- I've uninstalled iTunes & all versions of Quicktime
- I've stopped all Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware software
- I have full admin rights to the machine
- I've updated my Windows Installer
- I've run the Windows Installation Clean-Up Utility
- I've hacked the registry to death giving permissions to anything vaguely associated with Apple
- Ditto for permissions for the WINDOWS\Registration folder and the Program Files\Apple folder and the folder I'm installing from.
- I've stopped nearly every service I can and uninstalled just about everything that's non-essential

Are all Apple's updates so difficult to get working for Windows users? Should I just go back to the version of iTunes I got with my iPod and forget about updates or perhaps it's a cunning ploy to get me to buy a Mac?

Please, please help! I'm sick of this.
