How to completely uninstall iTunes from computer

Unfortunately, sooner or later any program starts to 'glitch'. A program created on the knee by students is likely to fail early, a program created by specialists Apple will fail late. The main thing is not to get upset and know how to recover. In this article, I'll show you how to reinstall software that is stuck. That is, how to completely remove iTunes from your computer and reinstall it.

I have long had suspicions that iTunes is not syncing correctly to my apple devices. Periodically, when syncing, I did not see new applications downloaded in iTunes, although I was successfully reported 'The last sync happened 2 minutes ago'. In addition, the inscription was displayed that 'data cannot be transferred to drive C'.

I was not very critical of this problem, but as it turned out, it was even in vain.

At one not-so-great moment, I decided to update iPhone to the new version 8.1.3. and got a 'glitch' update over wifi. The phone has turned to brick.

Okay, no big deal, let's restore everything via iTunes. iPhone recovered without problems, but downloaded applications, and even more so sorted into folders, did not recover. I got a mess on my phone, which I repaired for the next 5 days.

But in our beloved Apple this should not be. Obviously, this is not only a failure of the update (there was no such thing with Steve), but also a failure of recovery (he himself knew about the 'shoals of Tuna').

So it's decided. Reinstall iTunes. And let's start by uninstalling iTunes completely.

Remove iTunes completely

First, remove iTunes and related components. Please note that I am talking about COMPLETE data deletion. Those. after that, I again created music and video libraries, but only those applications that are on the devices were registered.
