Hello,
I am trying to install iTunes and QuickTime so I can use my iPod again.
I get all the way through the install then at the last moment I get the following error message:Error writing to file:
C:|Program Files\Quick Time\QTSystem\Quick TimeVRAuthoring.Resources\
pt_PT.Iproj\Quick TimeVRAuthoringLocalized.qtr.
Verify that you have access to that directory.
I looked at my program files and it is there however when I try to delete it up comes the following error message:
Cannot delete Quick TimeVRAuthoringLocalized: Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
I have completely removed iTunes from my pc using perfect uninstaller but suspect i have to get rid of this Quicktime stuff but how???
Please assist if you can

mosox,
I'll give the unblocker a try and get back to you.
Tks for being so quick off the mark.

mosox,
I tried going into safemode and deleting the Quick Time folder under C Drive/Program Folders but I got the same message "Cannot delete Quick TimeVRAuthoringLocalised: Data error(cyclic redundancy check)" So I downloaded unlocker.exe and this said there was nolock but would delete the folder on reboot.However it failed to do so.
I am therefore still left with this folder that I have to get rid of before I can reload iTunes+Quick Time.
Should I perhaps have logged on as Administrator when in safe mode? Would that have helped?
Any further advice would be welcomed
Cheers

That's a hard one I believe, I might install the darn thing myself just to see what's up.

Try this
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Secure-cleaning/C...
Tools -> uninstall.

That app is very useful to keep your PC clean too.

If this doesn't work click Start then Run, type regedit, hit enter
Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Expand Software, Microsoft, Windows, CurrentVersion, uninstall
Find the thing and right click and delete.

Look in the Software too in there for Apple Computer or something similar and expand that and delete QuickTime.

Hi mosox,
installed and ran ccCleaner - no joy thus followed your trail (above) right down to..... uninstall and found nothing with a Quick Time title so went into software and looked at the Apple list and again there was nothing with a Quick Time title in it.
I remain flummoxed.Here's hoping your grey matter comes up with another idea;by the way I thank you for your patience.

You are logged in as administrator? Can you rename the folder you can't delete?

mosox,
I am not logged in as admistrator but will attempt to do that but first I will try and rename the folder.
Renamed the Quick Time folder (Slowtime) OK.
Should I try and instal iTunes+Quick Time again?

Hi mosox,
by renaming the Quick Time folder I was able to re-install iTunes and Quick Time; so a great big thanks go to you for helping me :) 
I think people like you deserve a pat on the back for giving peons like me so much help - well done you.
Best regards
