How to i get itunes to stop showing the switch to or retry dialogue box?

Asked by frankenwill (1 points ) June 28th, 2007

Every time i start up itunes, a box appears saying my system is busy, and I can either retry or switch to, to fix the problem. After hitting retry about 10 times it opens, but is very annoying.

firstly run the windows task manager (ctrl alt del),c lcikc on the PROCESSES tab and check to see of the following two processes are in the list -"iTunesHelper" and "qttask.exe" . If they are there,

i would try and re-install itunes to see if it fixes the problem
if the problem still persists, run a registry scan with a freeware program called ccleaner (http://www.download.com/CCleaner/3000-2144_4-10669303.html?tag=lst-0-1) to see of theres a registry error thats causing the problems

That got that problen, now one more itunes related issue. When i close down i get the "another program is trying to use itunes" quit or dont quit. I use last.fm and i believe this is the program causing the issue. is there any way to disable this box from coming up everytime i hit close?

do you have a firewall software in your computer???
if so, you could change the program settings of last.fm to not use iTunes.
if you dont have a firewall, re-install last.fm -- when you run it for the first time (after re-install) windows will give you a warning like "LAst.fm is player is trying to get access to iTunes.exe . Allow or Deny". Click deny and you should be good
