    It's been several days and so far so good with mine since installing the latest iTunes update  11.0.5.5

  • julesvt Level 1 (0 points)

    I had installed 11.0.4.4 and all was working dandy...guess I need to install another "new" version. Thanks for alerting me!

  • Miss_Scarlett Level 1 (0 points)

    You're welcome!

     

    Keeping my fingers crossed it stays fixed.

    Unfortunately, I am experiencing this problem again.

  • _racerx_ Level 1 (20 points)

    Yes, it appears that the problem has returned with the latest updates to McAfee.

     

    I have posted to the McAfee forum here, please add your comment to the post too.

    For the time being I installed the latest itunes 11.1.1 version and so far my itunes preferences have been saved after restarting my computer a number a times. Hope this solves the problem. Good Luck Everyone!!!

    Well, I spoke too soon,sorry ...Even with the latest version of itunes,McAfee is deleting my preferences. I wish these two sides would cooperate with each other. Maybe I need to add my comment to McAfee as well, Just when I thought the problem was solved...What was I thinking!

  • Joelrz Level 1 (0 points)

    I also have the McAfee anti-virus installed and am running the iTunes 11.1.1.11 and my preferences are also erased like in the third iTunes launch. It's getting annoying. It happened ever since I updated iTunes.

  • fromsouth Level 5 (4,410 points)

    Guys, I regret to say that, but I do not get what is hanging over your attachment to McAfee. I and people who listen to me uninstalled hundreds of McAfee AV's over that time(last five months) and every time and time again it fixes the problem. Not only Itunes preferences problems. There are so many alternatives, why pay for inferior support with false positives, while free excellent AV alternative systems that are available from Microsoft or Avast. McAfee does not care, didn't then and will not now. They are just so deep in corporate market, consumer market means nothing to them. You want to use Apple products - lose it. I have no personal agenda or feelings, that is just technical support forum and my advice is technical only.

  • turingtest2 Level 9 (68,552 points)

    I agree wholeheartedly.

     

    Both McAfee and AVG have been the cause of various issues with iTunes 11, removing them and using another product fixes the problem. 'nuff said.

    I don't think it's being attached to McAfee because a lot us are probably 1 or 2 year subscribers to McAfee and cannot get a refund so changes can't be made until the plan is expired and who's to say that this iTunes preference issue couldn't happen again with another anti-virus service... nothing is ever a guarantee. I just can't figure out why the two of them(iTunes & McAfee) were working perfectly fine for two months, they both make updates all the time it seems. Hopefully those two sides can get their crap together so us the consumers don't have to go through this annoying matter.

    Just adding my two cents here. I started having problems a few days ago as described here: https://discussions.apple.com/message/23484991?ac_cid=op123456#23484991.

     

    I never had any issues with iTunes until this started happening. I am running McAfee, so it seems that either the latest iTunes doesn't like the latest McAfee, or vice versa. I turned off real-time scanning and in that fifteen minutes iTunes behaved. It is back on now (I only turned it off for 15 minutes to test) and we'll see what happens. FYI, I have McAfee Security Center, firewall and anti-virus, that came installed on my Dell.

  • VGM73 Level 1 (0 points)

    And whaddya know. Almost just as soon as real-time scanning resumed, iTunes got screwed up again. Obviously it's not scientifically valid, but it does seem to be more than a coincidence. Sure looks like McAfee is to blame.
