Please heklp and i hope my problem is clear.

    Did you download 4.9 by itself? Or did you run the 'update software' form the sys prefs?

    I would try to update your current version first then attemt the 4.9 upgrade.

    Cool
    I am not near my System at this time and I don't recall were the receipt folder is located. I think it is in the Library folder. In that folder locate the itunes document/file and delete it. Once that is done, you should be able to use the software update to install the latest version of itunes. The receipt folder is used to keep track of what software and the version that is loaded on your system.

    i imagine thats where the problem lays, i did try to update in software update, but it appeared as another application in my application home folder and when i opened it it would only stay open for a few seconds and then close, that is why i am trying to download it all together.
