how do i disable whatever keystrokes or mouse buttons that is causing this to happen? or how do i set itunes so that it only launches when manually selected to? i cant go more than 30sec whenever i use the keyboard without it launching. its so annoying because it plays a song then it stops about 45 sec into it then randomly starts up again over and over no matter how many times i quit the program. Every now and then after it launches on its own i will get an unknown error occurred (4002) message.

    If you have external speakers connected to your computer one of the common causes of this issue is that the EXTERNAL speaker connection to your computer is either lose or not seated correctly (especially if your speakers are "older"). Disconnect the speaker connection from the back of your computer and reconnect -- making sure it is fully seated and engaged.
