    When i click the itunes icon from the dock it bounces once then stops and doesn't open at all. Even from applications it won't open. Ive just done an archive and install on my computer today becuase my safari was like that and now my it works. Only problem now is itunes, ive tried uninstalling and deleting every itunes folder(no worries i backed it up)

    The joy of iTunes

    When you try to launch iTunes.Do you get the iTunes menu bar on the top of your screen?
    If thats the case,the iTunes window is mostly under your dock...

    If you open iTunes and the application just quits.
    It could be multiple things.
    I will list the 3 main ones.

    iTunes plugs ins
    If you hold down Option+Cmd when you click on iTunes,its boot iTunes in safe mode.If that know the problem then.

    ITunes library
    If you hold down option when you open iTunes,if you get a prompt to chose your iTunes library and you select create library and iTunes works.
    Your iTunes library is corrupted.

    Personal Settings for iTunes
    If you go into Home->Library->Preferences and delete com.iTunes.plist
    And you can launch iTunes after that,you issue was your personal settings.

    If that all Fails.
    Create a another account on the computer.
    If iTunes has the same problem,your issue is system wide.

    But the fact you did a A&I its most likely something is messed up inside your user account
