    My granddaughter’s laptop has a problem with iTunes. It was working until she downloaded a more current version. We brought it to Staples Tech Service and they had it for over a week and were unable to get iTunes to run. It was uninstalled and reinstalled more than a dozen time and still doesn’t run. We upgraded to Windows 10 in the hopes that the problem would go away but it didn’t.
    The message is “iTunesHelper was not installed correctly”. Error 7
    Can you suggest a fix?
    Thank you.

    • Gerard,

      The iTunesHelper was not installed correctly. Error 7. Typically the way to fix this is to, uninstall and reinstall iTunes with the latest version, update your operating system to the latest .net framework, but you say all this was done. This could indicate a hard drive problem.

      Make sure you uninstall all Apple / iTunes related software / services. (apple mobile Device Support, QuickTime, iTunes, Bonjour, iCloud, Apple Software Update, Safari)

      How old is the computer?
