I am getting the following error when I try to run iTunes.

Newer Version of QuickTime Required
QuickTime version 7.6.2 is installed, iTunes requires QuickTime version 7.6.4 or later.

Please uninstall iTunes, then install iTunes again.

I have uninstalled iTunes and reinstalled from latest version from the apple website, I have tried apple update and installed all that.

Any ideas?

Update: Thanks for all the suggestions, I guess I was just annoyed because the error message is so rubbish. When I get a chance I'll reinstall them all.

Try uninstalling QuickTime, then re-downloading the latest version of QuickTime 7 from You may need to re-install iTunes after installing the new version of QuickTime.

Open QuickTime and check your version. If it is out of date, update it and try again.

This is so stupid.

Despite iTunes being a single download, in order to uninstall it you need to uninstall iTunes and Quicktime, then reinstall itunes. Finally it is working.

Thanks for help.
