    Most of us are used to installing an application update over an existing
    version of the program. However, for many programs, the old program must be
    completely uninstalled before the update or new program can be successfully
    installed. Download and installation of programs or updates sometimes fails,
    leaving broken install debris. Normal uninstall processes on Vista are
    generally inadequate, often leaving program remnant files and orphaned
    registry entries on your system. Buildup of this install/uninstall debris
    can block normal program installation, impair proper program functioning,
    generate any number of error messages, and degrade Vista performance.

    Complete removal of broken installs and incomplete uninstalls is essential
    for normal install processes to occur. You can do this retroactively, after
    debris buildup has accumulated to the point of major computer malfunction,
    using a good registry scanner/cleaner. It is preferred to do this
    proactively, cleaning file remnants and registry entries after each
    uninstall, preventing debris buildup. Proactively, you can remove this
    install/uninstall debris manually with help from Windows Install CleanUp
    Utility or you can use Smarty Uninstaller.

    The best way to remove all the remnants of a partially uninstalled program
    or a broken install is to use Smarty Uninstaller. This program will scan
    your system and list all the programs on your computer, including "broken"
    parts of programs. It will then run the program's uninstaller (if present),
    and then rescan to list any pieces left on your system. Clicking Cleanup
    will then remove all traces of your program and installation of the new or
    update program can then proceed normally.

    A link to Smarty Uninstaller and other information about install/uninstall
    problems can be found at the following tutorial. For information on removing
    an empty listing from your Programs and Features, see the second tutorial.
    The third and fourth links are to good registry scanner/cleaner programs. If
    the preceding doesn’t solve your problem, see the fifth link about your
    Repair Vista Options.

    All right after 2 days of trying to figure out my "Error 2330," I hav
    finally figured it out. Like most of you I like to keep my softwar
    up-to-date, so I decided to upgrade to the latest iTunes... after doin
    so I received the "Error 2330." To my surprise there is not a whole lo
    of info on this issue. I manually deleted all references to iTunes
    QuickTime, and Apple from my registry and harddrive and that DIDN'
    work. I ran CCleaner and chdsk /f and that DIDN'T work. I change
    permissions on folders and that DIDN'T work.

    What did work was... I extracted the msi files from the iTune
    installation and tried to install them one at a time, that DIDN'T wor
    but it gave me a clue as to what was going on. While installin
    QuickTime it gave me the Error 2330 while it was trying to write t
    C:\Program Files\Java. I then went to that folder and I was unable t
    access it. I tried deleting it and it wouldn't delete. I was able t
    rename it to "Java2old". I then reinstalled Java and the I was able t
    re-install iTunes and QuickTime.

    The fix for me was:
    1) Rename the Java Folder,
    2) Reinstall Java
    2) Reinstall iTunes and QuickTime

    and viola it worked.

    Hope that helps.

    I couldn't get past this error code 2330 for a several weeks trying
    install iTunes 8.1.

    I used coguy71's technique to reinstall Java, and the error went away.

    I'm glad I had to wait for iTunes 8.1.1. 8.1.0 sounded unstable.
