Itunes wont start

Never had an issue with this program on win7 PC. The task manager will have itunes.exe and ituneshelper.exe started. I close process and restart... same thing. even when I restart PC.
Downloaded latest version and installed. It asked if I wanted to do repair so I did. Really not gaining any ground on the problem. Should I just uninstall ? as long as I still have my music I will do it but cant imagine it will remove it though.

Uninstalling iTunes should not remove your music or files, but back them up to be sure.

Then (from various Apple support threads) uninstall in this order:

iTunes
Quick Time
Apple Software Update
Apple Mobile Device Support
Bonjour
Apple Application Support

Now restart the computer and install the latest version of iTunes.

Does iTunes work now?

Copy your music directory, just to be safe. Uninstall iTunes using Revo Uninstaller (free). Download the correct version of iTunes (32 bit/64 bit). Reinstall.

You might wish to try the Apple method first. Revo does not play nicely with ALL software.

I have latest version of itunes. Very slow to come up maybe 10 to 15 minutes. The devices are very slow to be detected and to sync on this PC.

iTunes may be downloading IOS7.0.2 which is very slow to download.

So first iTunes did not start at all.

Then (presumably) you uninstalled / reinstalled as suggested above.

Now it is slow to load.

Have you verified that iTunes has downloaded all IOS updates and all application updates and installed them all on all your iPhones?

What volume of files are you transferring? and if you plugged in your iPhone to start iTunes, is this a reason for slow loading?

Leave your iPhone unplugged from the computer and start iTunes with nothing attached. Does it still take 15 minutes to load?

Have you defragged your hard drive lately?
