Thanks Animal. I think I've covered most of that ground, but I'll take a close look to see if there was anything I missed. I thought I had removed all, but DDS tells me:
==== Event Viewer Messages From Past Week ========
9/11/2014 10:48:45 AM, Error: Service Control Manager  - A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Apple Mobile Device service to connect.
9/11/2014 10:48:45 AM, Error: Service Control Manager  - The Apple Mobile Device service failed to start due to the following error: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
Don't see any Apple services in services.msc.
and 'Everything' search util finds numerous Apple and itunes files still scattered around the disk. I'm 'retired' for a reason, this stuff has gone beyond my understanding. I'm a bit uncomfortable playing with services, and I don't want to just randomly start deleting files. Can you suggest the best forum to get some help digging this out?
