I've tried to download the new itunes 10 on my windows xp and halfway through it tells me that if I continue downloading that it could eventually ruin my system. What is going on?

    iTunes compatibility:

    • Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, 32-bit editions of Windows Vista, or 32-bit editions of Windows 7
    • 64-bit editions of Windows Vista or Windows 7 require the iTunes 64-bit installer
    • QuickTime 7.6.6 or later is required (included)

    You may want to wait for iTunes 10.1. There may be issues for some XP users with 10.0. There was for me and the install failed. My IT Department said to wait.

    I would recommend waiting. I have Windows XP and I made the unfortunately mistake of installing iTunes 10. Now until they post a fix for this I have no use for iTunes. It no longer recognizes that I have a device attached. I've tried unsuccessfully to uninstall and re-install but it hasn't helped. And, for reasons I don't understand when I try to re-install an older version of iTunes that worked perfectly before, now I can't even get it to open at all. Personally I wish I never heard of iTunes 10.

    I doubt it says that.
    Perhaps you could post the _exact message_ you are seeing?

    Im in the same XP boat. iTunes will not open after upgrade to ver. 10. I tried several uninstall/re-install and repair options, plus tested several posted suggestions with no success.

    Interestingly in the "Add or Remove Programs" window iTunes, Bonjour and QuickTime show the Setup or Installer icons and not the program icons.

    Need a fix!!!
