Ok, my idea is kinda lame but let's just try it:
What are you clicking on when you want itunes to open? A shortcut on desktop? Try clicking on the itunes.exe file itself. In WinXP, the path is c/program files/itunes.
If this doesn't work, try uninstalling itunes and disabling all scanning software like antivirus and the like, then installing it again.
Hello everyone. I've had iTunes installed for about a year, and the same thing started happening to me only recently. As opposed to granting myself Full Access to every file in c:\, is there an .ini file I can focus on? I confirmed that the shortcut I use to open iTunes points to itunes.exe, but what is the difference between that and iTunesHelper.exe?
Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
I found a solution on another post (from one Mark_UK), and it seems to have done the trick for me. Here it is, in full:

This is a really annoying bug and seems to have something to do with XML that is used to share data across different programmes. XML is used to store your user preferences and it seems that if an XML file in another programme is altered in any way it can affect iTunes XML preferences.
I have overcome it by taking these steps (in Vista):
Delete the following files:
C:\Users\your username\AppData\Local\Apple Computer\iTunes
C:\Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes
You will then have to agree to the conditions and run through setup one last time. It should then be set (until the next time XML files are altered)!
