Unable to convert music files to aac in iTunes since upgrade to iTunes 10 with Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a month old Toshiba laptop running 64 bit Windows 7. I cannot convert mp3 files to aac in iTunes any longer without iTunes crashing. The conversion utility starts to work and then I get a Windows generated error message informing me that iTunes has stopped working and will need to close. Windows will close the program and notify me if a solution is available. I  both iTunes 10 and the corresponding Quick Time and re-installed them after being certain to remove all installed components. The problem persisted. I created a new user profile for my laptop and re-installed iTunes and the problem persisted. I took my laptop to the Apple store as I was unable to sync my ipod because of this issue. They troubleshooted and found that it's a Windows 7 problem. What should I do? The Apple tech suggested reinstalling Windows 7.
