    I want a clean install of iTunes without reinstalling the entire system. How can this be done? I tried to move iTunes to the trash, but I get an error that says iTunes cannot be deleted or modified because it's required by Mac OS X.

    Hi kraig,
    1/ download/install "AppCleaner.app"
    2/ hold 'control' + left click on 'iTunes' app, choose "Move to trash"
    you'll get window showing you all the items being removed (thru 'AppCleaner')
    un-mark the items you DON'T want to be removed (like iTunes lib.).
    3/ download new iTunes app (or old one if you wish)
    4/ install...

    App removal software like AppCleaner doesn't do a thorough job of deleting files/folders related to deleted apps. For more information, read this.

    The only effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:
