Freezing up during installation? Getting error that the action is not valid? Follow the steps below to install iTunes on your Windows 7 computer.
Empty the temp directory. To do this click Start and All Programs, click Accessories, System Tools and Disk Cleanup.

Click Start and Computer. Click the hard drive (C:). Click the AppData folder and select the Local folder. Right click on the Temp folder and select Delete. Click Yes to the confirmation.

If you still can’t install iTunes make sure you have Administrator rights. If you are not sure if you are signed on as an administrator then check your account to be sure.
iTunes requires Windows 7 with SP1. If you don’t have the latest updates then update Windows and try to install iTunes again.
