When you install iTools or iTunes in Windows, you will get three bundled programs, namely Apple Application Support (32-bit), Apple Application Support (64-bit) and Apple Mobile Device Support. After you remove iTools or iTunes, you will need to remove these three by performing similar steps. Not sure what to do? Check the following guides.
How to Manually Remove iTools in Windows
First of all, the account you’re using to login the system should have the administrative rights, which allow you to make changes on the operating systems without providing password. But if your system never had a second account, ignore this, then start the removal right away:
1. Shut down iTools.
Quit the iTools program from running in the background no matter what. It may not be necessary towards the removal of some programs, but just in case.
2. Remove iTools by activating its built-in uninstaller (2 Options).
Click Start > enter “control panel” in the search box, then click Uninstall a program / Programs and Features > Double-click iTools to activate its default uninstaller. Then you can go through the same steps to remove the three mentioned bundled programs. If you choose not to remove them, skip Step 3.
3. Open the Windows Registry Editor.
Click Start > enter “regedit” in the search box.
A lot of keys named after the program’s name or as a mix of numbers and letters that probably make no sense that belong to different programs are contained in the Uninstall folder. Check if you can see this folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\iTools. If found, delete them to completely remove iTools.
If the program fails to uninstall, there may be another program on your computer blocking it. Try to remove iTools in Safe Mode. For information on how to boot to Safe Mode, see:
