iTunes cannot run because it has detected a problem with your audio configuration


Have deleted Quicktime and gone into services, did not work.  Any advice would help.

Most likely it is a QuickTime related issue, have you fully removed QuickTime via the uninstall option in Programmes&Features? Uninstall it completely and then reinstall. Most times a corrupted QuickTime causes this erroneous message...

If this does not work this could mean that another programme has exclusive control over your audio hardware, such as sound recording or other comms software.

Try checking for this by running msconfig and have. A look at your startup items to see which could interfere. Disable one by one until you find the culprit.

Here is the download link for QuickTime. It makes sense to only download the standalone QuickTime installer:

[Was editing my previous comment:]

First try this, however: (1) start Quicktime, then (2) start iTunes.

When did the problem start?  Or when did it work okay? Could you do a system restore?

Try:

Uninstalling Quicktime and iTunes using Revo Uninstaller (free). Restart. And then reinstall Quicktime and iTunes.

Okay. Remove what Revo sees through Revo.  And iTunes through Windows Uninstaller. Run CCleaner to do a cleanup. Restart. And reinstall.

A wild try (to diagnose): What happens if you run iTunes in safe mode with networking?

Well, it looks like an audio (sound) problem on the PC. It's not a Quicktime or iTunes problem. Try to diagnose and fix the audio drivers and adjust sound (speaker) settings. Is the Windows Audio Service running?
