    Can you see the headline ?

     

    It clearly says "Apple Support Communities > iTunes > iTunes for Mac".

    hi bono, i tried the solution like you said and it worked when I restarted ITunes, I just hope it works when I restart the laptop.  Thanks very much for the help it was driving me crazy !!

    Bono, aindriu, it did not work for me

    I accidentally opened iTunes first (normally) then closed it down, then reopened it as administrator, then entered my password in (was only prompted once this time), then when I closed itunes and restarted iTunes, I got prompted again twice for my password.

    Do you think it is because I opened iTunes normally the first time.  I know this is the mac forum, but I too am on win 7 64bit

    "Run as administrator" - Worked for me.  (Windows 7 Pro 64 bit,  iTunes 10.5.3.3)

    The only funny thing is the first time I restarted iTunes in normal mode, it welcomed me and made me acknowledge the EULA again.

     

    Thanks bono.hu.  Yes, it was only an minor annoyance, but seemed to get more annoying each time. 

     

    It must have something to do with iTunes being unable to store the username/password when it is not in administrator mode.  This does not help the Mac users though?

    hi all!

     

    try this: start iTunes by right-click, and "Run as administrator", then enter your password when it asks, close iTunes, start it again (normally, as usual, this time), and voilá!

    i had the same problem on my new notebook (Win7, 64 bit), but this method eliminated the problem today morning.

     

    please let me now, if it worked for you, too! ;-)

    So, has anyone determined whether iTunes 10.5.3 addresses this issue?

     

    I've always been circumspect in performing software updates, and even more so when software with generally undescriptive changelogs only mention new features of no interest to me.

    I've tried the "Run as Administrator" option and no dice.  I even did a COMPLETE uninstall and re-install, then tried the "Run as" again.  Still nothing.  In fact now I have to cancel the login pop-up 3 times!  Yet my wifes and son's itunes does not do this.  I can't figure out why even after a complete uninstall, it re-installs exactly the same way.  That leads me to believe it is an entry in the registry that is causing it...

    I had the same problem, but I think I found the solution

     

    1. open itunes

    2. if you are signed up to your itunes, click "account" top right corner

    3. Under the PING, section, turn Ping off.

    4. Click "done"

     

    This worked for me. No more pop out about asking me my password for auto download.

    so far, the update to 10.5.3 has solved the issues for me.

    Glad to hear that.

     

    Once I'm able to find some time and perform a full backup, I'll give it a try.

    I just updated to 10.5.3 a couple days ago and that's when I started getting this glitch. So far everything suggested here has not worked for me. I even tried reinstalling the update. My next attempt to fix the problem is to use a little reverse psychology and have "check for automatic downloads" checked off in the preferences. 

     

    My glitch is particularly annoying as iTunes will ask for my password a good 5+ times in a row. Does anyone notice the decimals in the songs/days/GB text at the bottom showing up as question marks when the glitch is asking for your password? That's what I see...

    Ok, I thought it had fixed it for me. But, the same persists.  To the original poster, would you consider changing the title to something to help others find this thread? Perhaps the more people that find and comment, the more Apple "might" become "more" aware of it or mention that they are...

    thank you..
