Can't Install iTunes10.1 update

by LakesReg / November 23, 2010 6:10 AM PST

Attempted to install the update from apple to move my version of iTunes 10.0.1 to iTunes 10.1. I
I was able to download it via the updating part of iTunes. But I could not install it. Kept getting en error, though the error was not specific.
It is not a firewall question as I can download it. It also seems to install bonjour, apple mobile device support, and some other apple type item (Not iTunes or Quicktime)

So not sure what I?m doing wrong or what I?m missing

My solution has been the old uninstall, and install routine.

I wish this stuff didn't have us do that but until that perfect software arrives.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
