Can you check something for me please?
Restart your PC. after the PC restarts, bring up your Task manager, and go to the "Processes" tab. Click "Image name" to sort the processes alphabetically.
Now try to launch iTunes.
Does an itunes.exe process appear? If so, does it vanish after a second or so, or does it persist in the Processes tab (even though iTunes itself never shows up)?
Okay, I downloaded and successfully started an up to date quick time player. Then I clicked on the ITunes icon and got a message that read something like, this is the latest version of Itunes. Getting an update or checking for updates didn't work because you aren't connected to the internet (shich we both know isn't true. I have two choice one was long and ended with tray again later and the other was open Itunes Tutorial.
I selected tutorial and then the box disappeared and nothing started. I opened the Windows Task Manager Processes tab and Itunes.exe*32 is listed but I have nothing on the screen.
For the fun of it I connected my Ipod but that did not start Itunes either.
