    iTunes Crashes on Startup

    Ever since I tried installing iTunes on my Lenovo y410p (Windows 8 x64), it will crash after it starts up. I've tried completely un-installing and re-installing, but to no avail. I've noticed that it only crashes when I'm connecting to the internet. Please help me solve this.

    Found the solve...10 posts down:

    1. From your desktop, right-click "My Computer" and click "Properties" (If you don't have the "My Computer" icon on your desktop, use the following steps, 0.1 - 0.5)

    0.1 - Click the Start Menu button (Or use the Windows button on your keyboard)
    0.2 - Locate "Computer" (should be in the right panel near the middle)
    0.3 - Right-click on "Computer"
    0.4 - Click "Properties" from the option pane
    0.5 - This should have opened the "System" window (in the control panel also), continue to step 2

    2. In the "System" window, click on "Advanced system settings", this brings up the "System Properties" window

    3. In the "System Properties" window, click on the "Advanced" tab

    4. In the "Advanced tab", click the "Environment Variables" button

    5. In the "Environment Variables window", find and highlight the "Path" variable in the "Systems Variables" section

    6. Click the "Edit" button to bring up the "Edit System Variable" window.

    7. Finally, place your mouse cursor at the very end of the "Variable Value", and modify the variable value by adding the following (EXACTLY) to the end:

    ;C:\program files (x86)\common files\apple\apple application support\
