I see you posted at http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=11904845#11904845 too.
Did you run Disk Utility - Repair Disk +whilst booted from the Install DVD + ? (not repair disk permissions, Repair Disk, and you'd have had to restart your mac whilst holding down the C key)
did it say there were errors it couldn't fix ?
If so, then you'll either need better disk repair tools, which cost $$ or will need to erase the HD via your Install DVD & then see if you can successfully install again, followed by the appropriate updates.
Back up your data before attempting this, it will remove everything.
If that doesn't work out, then the HD is faulty, and if you're in warranty, Apple will replace it for you.
No wonder I couldn't find the thread.
For whatever reason the original thread in the Safari category was deleted.
I had gone through using Disk Utility. The startup disk has an error that requires either an erase and install or possibly DiskWarrior or TechToolPro.
The error was this: *underlying task reported failure on exit*
I have exactly the same problem with the same message from iTunes. It's driving me nuts.
I have reinstalled system update 10.4.11, safari 4.0.5 and iTunes 9.2.1 all to no avail. Same error msg comes up.
I have also gone down the disk repair route and booted up off the system DVD, run disk utility, repaired permissions and bubkis.
Weirdly I wonder if this may have something to do with a corrupt file identified by an error msg from a cloning attempt I did using CCC - A Frameworks Core FP file that is stopping me running a successful clone with CCC.
From the CCC log:
"rsync: readlink_stat(\"/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreFP.framework/Versions/.BC .pvsm4w\") failed: Invalid argument (22)",
"IO error encountered -- skipping file deletion"
Now i think this has something to do with iTunes. I am beginning to think iTunes needs to be reinstalled through a complete system re-install. Really reluctant to do that tho =[
