    Did you remove the following files when you uninstalled?

    iTunesPhoneDriver.pkg
    iTunesX.pkg
    iTunes4.pkg
    iTunes.pkg


    They're in a folder named Receipts.

    You may need to check your Receipts folder to see if there is a .pkg for iTunes in there. if there is try and move it out of there to your desktop,

    Then try a reinstall if iTunes.

    If it works, trash the .pkg on your desktop and do a little dance.

    If it doesn't work,
    i don't know, maybe try downloading the free app called "pacifist" and try to install iTunes with that.

    I'm sure someone will jump in and offer better advice than that.

    *edit* the mad jew beat me to it....doh

    Worth a shot.

    Good luck
