I own a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
Yesterday morning I started experiencing a problem loading iTunes.
At first iTunes just stopped loading, no error messages, just shows up in processes when trying to open it, then a 'Windows Problem Reporting' process flashes up and iTunes disappears.
I thought it was just one of many glitches with iTunes, but after countless attempts to try and do full/clean un/reinstall(s) with various versions, to no avail, I realised there's something else going on.
I ran all my anti-spyware/virus/malware programs, nothing major showed up, generally clean, just some adware tracing cookies.
Programs were: Avast Anti-Virus, Malwarebytes & SuperAntiSpyware.
I've also run Combofix, but the log is a little beyond my comprehension, it does seem to show up some 'nasties'.
I then gave up on iTunes as I needed to crack on with work, so I went to open Photoshop...
Now that has stopped working as well!
Same thing as with iTunes, shows up in processes on initial loading, then 'Windows Problem Reporting' process flashes up and it vanishes.
This is also happening with 'MusicBee', a new program I installed to try and replace iTunes.
I have tried a System Restore, but I couldn't go back any further than yesterday, thanks to all the un/reinstall(s) of iTunes.
I'm a little stuck as to what to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm looking to replace the laptop in the New Year, but I really need it for these last few days of 2015.
