This happened to me today as well, except iphone has been working fine for 10 days, all of a sudden today AVG antivirus recognised part of itunes at a Virus (cant remember which file I accidently told it to heal) so I uninstalled itunes and now gets the same message as you when I try to reinstall (along with the message HRESULT - 2147023782)

I notice this

so am working on it...

Do you use AVG?

Ok I just uninstalled AVG and now it lets me reinstall itunes (I was getting thje same "C:\Program files\itunes\itunesminiplayer.dll failed to register" message when I tried with AVG running). Guess it's time to try a new anti-virus?

have you got your pc sorted yet?

Hey mysticnz , nah I didn't try the exception list, good idea though! Had already uninstalled AVG. I might steer clear from it for the moment now though...

Well, yet another reason to avoid AVG and switch to a better AV! *cough*Avira*cough* (Hint: av-comparatives.org)

Almost every AV I know had a day where it started recognising system or important file as malware and caused problems. It's not AVG alone.

I use Avast Home and lately my PCs are running the Microsoft Security Essentials Beta.

Well what I meant to say that that AVG isn't as good as Avira, NOD32 or Kaspersky, in terms of detection rates atleast. Oh, and neither is Avast. (ranks #6, after AVG)
