Itunes

Don't like how iTunes 10.5 functions. Want to downgrade to 10.4 or 10.3. Recommendations for performing this task include opening Control Panel and removing several Apple iTunes files, after which it is suggested that the registry be cleaned of any remaining Apple files using CC Cleaner. Have never used this registry cleaner. Have seen a registry cleaner recommended on this forum when uninstalling and then reinstalling Creator 2009, 2010, etc. Have looked through the forum but have yet to find a posting describing this registry cleaner. Isn't this what always occurs when you want something but then can't find it? Can this registry cleaner also be used to remove remaining files related to Apple files in the registry? And, what is the name of the registry cleaner?

 

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Be very careful with Registry Cleaners, Some aggressive ones will removed needed registry entries.

 

Look in You add/remove programs to see if there are some entries for ITunes and Itunes updates. Uninstalling those updates might be all you need.

 

Many people, including me have had good luck using the free Revo Uninstaller in the MODERATE Mode to remove software and associated safe to remove registry items. If you can still get Itunes 10.3 or 10.4, I would recommend this and then do a clean install of the earlier versions.

 

I don't use ITunes so I have not had any experience doing the above but that approach works for other software.

I've used Revo to uninstall iTunes and didn't have a problem.

I did it a few versions ago when I ran into trouble.

You should be able to use it in Moderate mode without a problem.

 

When you run Revo it uses the programs uninstall routine if there is one so you'll see the Apple uninstaller come up.Just tell it ok and let it do it's thing.When it finishes then hit next in Revo and it will find left over bits.
