What is the location of the offending item?

Have you gone to that location and deleted it manually?

revouninstaller deletes only the latest version. After that, you have to go after it manually. I'm sure you've noticed the "manila folder" icon on the insecure programs menu. Clicking it will show the exact location of any other outdated versions you might have. Normally, just zapping the executable will take the program, in your case iTunes, off the danger list. You could also try to get it through the registry editor, but it's risky, time consuming, and not at all fun,so try option one 1st. If you do just delete the executable, you'll want to run a registry cleaner such as CCleaner (free, easy to use, and benign) Good Luck
