I was having a problem where when I would turn on itunes it would immediately change the windows 7 color scheme to basic and then a couple of seconds later it would change it back. It would do that every minute or so. I saw someone say to make sure compatibility was turned off on itunes.exe and ituneshelper.exe. Compatibility was off, but I wondered what would happen if I turned it on, since there was a setting for windows 7. I turned it on and so far the problem has been fixed.
So maybe try turning compatibility on for your version of windows.

Many thanks. Changing Quicktime Preferences to safe mode in Advanced worked perfectly for me too. My screen kept blinking every minute with the above message and forcing iTunes to the foreground no matter what I was doing. I've no idea how you worked that out but I'm very grateful you did. Cheers.

the changing from DirectX to safe Mode (GDI only) in quicktime worked for me as well. in fact i had itunes and didnt even have quicktime so i had to download it THEN change that setting. as soon as i did, bam, no more reverting to windows 7 basic. weird, but thanks for the solution!
