Itunes keeps freezing in Win 7 64bit - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Well one things for certain, you're not alone (apple support thread) :/
I really wish I knew the answer here, and feel a bit foolish for not having a better insight on the matter (despite combing through that - lots of "fixes" seemed pretty outlandish regarding things from editing registry files all the way to BIOS settings...).

There's nothing wrong with MM, and it is lighter on resources. Don't immediately listen to iTunes haters trying to be fashionable or relying on their impressions of iTunes from several releases ago.

You said that you have the same problem with other music software - that suggests that it's not an iTunes problem.
Well admittedly I didn't see the bit about Winamp

Regardless of improvements I completely gave up on iTunes years ago; you hit the nail right on the head.
Rightfully so if you ask me, however I'm not entirely ignorant () so I'd be willing to give it another go, provided it doesn't still stupidly copy every blessed file in my library to it's own directory.

This.

I was a hater until 9.0. I think it'll take awhile to shake of its bad rep from previous versions but modern iTunes is really quite good.

It reminds me of the way that lots of people didn't like Vista (me included) and kept with XP. It was only after giving Win7 a go that people began to forgive previous version's sins.


Back on topic: as you have two media players that have issues, it's time to look elsewhere for the problem.

I'd suggest a) virus scan b) checking the drive where your music is.

and I'm a little confused, but you really should have the correct version. If you have a 32bit OS, then use 32bit software - the same goes for a 64bit OS - use 64bit software!!!!

It was a completely fresh install of the whole OS. First I had the 64bit w7, and I obviously installed the 64 bit itunes because the 32 bit won't even install and it will tell you that with a warning message.

Then I installed the x86 (which is apparently 32bit) w7 today, and I still have the same problem.

I also had this problem in Vista 64bit.

How can I check my HD? Could the HD be the problem with this one? And Itunes works up until I plug in the iphone, and then the computer freezes up.

I'm using media monkey for the songs and my dads laptop for the itunes. It sucks, because I even reinstalled windows and got the 32 bit w7. It did this on vista 64 bit as well

Hi All,

I was having this problem and tried all these different tips but none worked except for this! I registered to try and help others so please give it a go:

This might be caused due to any of the Security program conflicting with iTunes. You may try to uninstall iTunes put the system in clean boot and the re-install iTunes and check if all the services are started.

To put the computer in Clean boot, follow the below given steps.

The steps to be performed in clean boot are given below:

1. Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights

2. Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue

3. On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box. (The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)

4. On the Services tab, click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then click Disable all

Note: Following this step lets Microsoft services continue to run. These services include Networking, Plug and Play, Event Logging, Error Reporting, and other services. If you disable these services, you may permanently delete all restore points. Do not do this if you want to use the System Restore utility together with existing restore points


Once you boot to the desktop reinstall iTunes. Check if you are able to start the services.

For further information on clean boot please follow the below given link:

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135



After you have finished reinstalling, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

1. Click start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

2. On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.

3. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart



Hope this information is helpful.
