    Here is my situation, hopefully someone can help me solve it.

    A few months ago, along with iTunes 8.2, my Apple Mobile Device Service became corrupted, or something along those lines. Regardless, it led to EXTREMELY slow sync times, and AMDS quits during restores and updates. Which has become an increasingly annoying issue. I believe that deleting all of the files and folders related to iTunes and AMDS might clear the issue. But if someone has other ideas, feel free to suggest them.

    Information: Windows Vista SP2, iTunes 8.2.1.

    More: I have repeatedly uninstalled everything Apple and just reinstalled iTunes to no avail, the same issues. So I'm unsure what kind of corrupted orphans iTunes leaves, but if I could be pointed to directories to clear or files to delete, it would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to answer here or to help me over Twitter. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Yep. Something happened to AMDS, and I haven't a clue what, where, or how to fix it. If someone could give a list of directories I can delete, that would be great.

    AVG detects no malware at last scan. Perhaps some virus removal took something with it. I'll surely try Revo Uninstaller, anything is worth a shot.
