Error in Zune Software


  • Here's error message we get when trying to open Zune 4.8 in Windows 7.

    "Zune needs to close. For installation instructions on correcting this error, open the URL below in a web browser."

    Then after following the instructions to uninstall, etc., the message reappears as before. It's like going in circles. Would welcome any suggestions... no luck with Mr. Fix It!
