iTunes setup hangs on starting services, Windows 7 error

  1. So I have Windows 7 64 bit on my HP HDX 18, and I did a FRESH install, I did not upgrade. Now I'm trying to install iTunes 9.0.2 64 bit and it starts to install and gets to the part of "Starting Services..." and then comes up with an error saying "service 'apple mobile device' (apple mobile device) failed to start. verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services".

    I've tried many times to delete everything of apple's and itunes from my computer thoroughly, rebooted, and tried again. But I keep getting the same error time after time, I've even tried the Windows 7 32 bit iTunes and it's the same thing.

    Can anyone help?

    Have you tried the Run as Administrator thing from the right click menu?
