Hi, I just downloading an iTunes update that resulted in me not being able to open iTunes. I get an error msg that says I need to uninstall and reinstall iTunes. Can I do this without losing my entire library????
Thanks so much!!!

    Yes. Just do it normally.

    Yes, of course, but the fact that you ask may indicate that you have not made a backup in a while. Do it now!

    Also be aware that if you have any DRM-protected tracks that you purchased from the iTunes Store, they are unplayable in anything other than iTunes. If you uninstall iTunes you cannot use those tracks until you reinstall.
