I have been trying to install itunes and the ipod interface for a friend's daughter. Somehow I'm the defacto computer expert at the office because I know the difference between explorer and outlook :thumbsup:

Anyhow, I've used the CD that came with the ipod and another one that came with my wife's ipod, as well as the program from apple's site to try to get it to work. Each time it gives me the same problem.

I can install up to the point where it asks for you to click on the user agreement. It's a screen that pops up and you're supposed to click "I agree" or something to that effect... but it's ony there for a fraction of a second and then it dissappears. When I click on the itunes icon to open the program it flashes that screen again but quickly dissappears.

When nothing else worked I cleaned up the computer (adaware, spybot, crapcleaner, etc) and tried it in safe mode and it worked. However, when I went back in non safe mode the problem persisted the way it had before.

I previously installed my wife's on my computer with no difficulty. If anyone has a solution or suggestion or solution to this please let me know. Thanks

Just a thought..

Thanks for your reply.

I am aware of the processes running and nothing indicated to me that there was a pop=up blocker running. It's their family computer and the kids had all kinds of crap on it. I had them write a list of everything they use and tried my best to get rid of everything else (including Norton 2003 and a couple of viruses). I think the only security related program installed was norton though.

I guess I can see if they have one of the blocking toolbars though. I wouldn't think that that'd block it especially with no browser open. But I suppose that stranger things have happened. Thanks again.

I think its the usual problem when trying to install Itunes.
Try to delete everything re your old Quicktime and or Itunes.If you can get your hands on Regsupreme (its free),use that one.
After that try a clean install of Itunes/Quicktime again. :thumbsup:
