Install iTunes 10 Without The Extra Bloatware

Windows only: It’s no secret that the iTunes installer loads up your system with extra components you probably don’t need, and there’s no way to opt out — unless you crack open the install file, that is.

Over at ZDNet, Windows expert Ed Bott shows how to install iTunes components piece-by-piece, starting with extracting the components from the installer so that you can install each piece separately — he also walks through exactly which pieces you’ll need to install, depending on which iPod model you have or which features you are using. It’s a great read for anybody stuck using iTunes on Windows.
