Repeat for iPodService.exe and then iTunesHelper.exe and you should be all set to synch your nano to your account.20 GB 3rd Gen iPod (v 2.3 software); 1 GB iPod Shuffle (v 1.1.3 software);, Windows XP, iTunes 18.104.22.168

How to force iPodService to start in only one account
Use to avoid the logoff problem
Open the account you want it permanently off of, go to the desktop, right click on My Computer, and hit Manage.
Hit Services & Applications>Services>iPodsrv (or iPodservice, it's an older version).
Double click, set the 'startup type' to Disabled, and it won't open in that account.
Rinse, repeat for any other accounts as needed.iPods: 2G, photo, nano, Mac OS X (10.4.5), , Windows XP SP2
