ITunes issue (registry broken)

Hello folks,

Folks, I'm trying to update iTunes, and I just realized that my program is messed up, probably because of some registry cleaner I've used...

I can't repair, uninstall or even reinstall it.

It always shows these errors:



Then this one:



Then it says it didn't alter the system, and doesn't install.

I don't want to format my PC because of this...

I've tried installing/repairing/uninstalling in safe mode, and my account has administrator privileges, and I've tried the "Run as admin" option, no luck. I tried a system restore too, but no luck as the latest restore point is from 6 days ago.

I guess it was caused by some registry cleaner software, probably CCleaner... The bad part is that I declined the back up request.... (yes, I'm dumb and I've learned a life lesson after this)

So, do you guys have any idea of how to solve this?

Thanks in advance.

    Man, did you the original post?
  5. Make sure u unplug iPod...
  6. I chose to format, so this problem is gone.

    Feel free to delete this, thanks for the help, nikorr.
  7. Well, good luck.
  8. Hey, registry cleaner usually makes back up of the registry, before cleaning. Check if u do have one.
  9. I know, the problem is that I declined the request for backup, so I kinda deserved that.

    Anyways, that was my lesson.
