Hey everyone that was having trouble with Genius. You might want to try again. On a whim I just tried for the first time in a couple of months and it turned on just fine.
Are you on an Acer? I just plain old got a new computer. In part because the issue really did seem to be with Acers.
Yeah, this started working on my Acer Aspire One after months of failures. I was also on the verge of breaking down and getting a new computer because genius was failing.
I just upgraded to iTunes 11 and this fixed my problem! don't know what they did but I don't have the issue with Genius crashing iTunes anymore. Hope this helps everyone.
