Hi -

I recently did a mass-uninstall of "unauthorized" versions of iTunes in my domain, and so far have found a couple versions which had no uninstall strings and were marked as "systemcomponent" (so as not to appear in ARP), and therefore got missed in my first pass. I get my ProductCodes from ARP uninstall values.

Versions 4.6.0.15 and 4.7.0.42, both about 2 years old.

Can anybody think of any legitimate reason why these would be marked as systemcomponents? I know of no authorized software on our systems that have iTunes as a legitimate co-requisite.

Does anyone know of any other versions of Windows software from Apple that are also, ah, "canny" in this way?

Could this have something to do with Apple forcing you to install QuickTime with iTunes at about that time? The installers were bundled together.
