    Can't uninstall a program because it doesn't show as installed despite being able to run it.


    I want to uninstall iTunes from my computer so I can just run it from an external hard drive. When I go to Control Panel to do this it doesn't list iTunes as an installed program. I can open and run it though. When I right click on the iTunes icon on my task bar, I don't have the properties option that I have on, for example, Steam. By using to Task Manager, I found that its location is C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ but when I go to C:\Program Files\ there is no WindowsApps folder. If I put C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ into the file explorer address bar it says I don't have permission to access the folder and that I need to open security tab and grant permission. When I go to that everything is grayed out.

    :)

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?

    Thanks for your answer, ken!
    I deleted all my data. I had have it backed up.

    I did a clean installation using the windows media creation tool (usb option).

    No, I didn`t. I thought a clean installation would solve the problem.

    After posting my previous message, I did it.

    After chkdsk, I close cmd and tried to boot and the laptop just turned it off. This morning I`ve restarted it and automatically windows did a repair. Windows has booted and it seems that the repair tool has removed chrome and acrobat pdf reader (the only two programs I had installed after reinstalling windows).

    Now Windows is installing updates and restarting my lapop, I`m kind of frightened. I don`t want it to happen again. Anyhow, I want to know what has brought the issue

    I`ve been looking for information about the error code at the end of the picture and I didn`t get anywhere.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Crashing on Startup, doesn´t run

    Hi Vijay,

    thanks for response. I tried your steps with a Google DNS and Open DNS - but it doesn´t help.

    The game still crashes in the moment I try to run it.

    I'll be glad for another solutions.
