I'm hoping that this is a stupid question and someone will have a quick fix for me :) I can't seem to stop itunes from loading everytime I login. I've checked and unchecked the open at login option, found when you actually click on the icon in the dock, I've checked in the system preferences, I've checked in the itunes preferences, I can't seem to figure it out and it's driving me nuts! it slows down the login process quite a bit.. any advice?

yeah i've already checked system preferences, itunes was never listed in the login items oddly. I even tried adding it to the list and then removing it! nothing is working. and to answer the second question, no, no ipod is connected.

Hi,

Do you have anything iTunes related in your StartupItems folder? Do you use an iTunes widget that could be activating iTunes? Do you have the Mac on a network that shares your iTunes folder with other computers?

Trash iTunes (save your iTunes folder). Trash all iTunes related plists. Trash your Finder and Startup plists.

Reboot. Run ONYX or Cocktail. Run both. Rub around the block.

Reboot.

Download iTunes. Reinstall. Download any system updates. Run Onyx or Cocktail. Run to the corner store for a Fudgscicle. Reboot.

If that doesn't solve your problem, consult a witch doctor, or backup all your documents are reinstall your entire OS.

You think *that's* weird? My elderly uncle has a ghost in the machine. Every time *every time* he burns a CD, the moment it finishes, his Solitaire programme launches.

:eek:

For some reason, I found that hilarious.

I haven't laughed that hard in a while.:lmao:
