iTunes Keeps Opening Automatically in Windows 7

I recently updated to iTunes 10.5 here at my office and for some reason, iTunes has decided that it ALWAYS needs to be open. iTunes now opens when I boot up my computer. Upon closing it, iTunes will re-open itself within 1-5 minutes. Seems to be very random. This will happen continuously. As many times I close it, it will always open again. So far, the only way I’ve found to stop this annoyance is just to leave iTunes open, which really isn’t an option for me. I don’t need iTunes consuming any memory while I’m trying to complete other tasks.

Has anyone else had the problem of iTunes opening automatically, continuously and repeatedly? It is really frustrating because each time it opens, it comes to the foreground.

  1. I’ve noticed that it happens when my iPhone is set to sync automatically to the network and when it connects, iTunes opens.

  2. @WorldSk8r01 – that could possibly be it. going to re-install iTunes on my office computer tomorrow at the office and see what happens. Ended up uninstalling it to solve my problem in the short term. Thanks for sharing that idea.
