iTunes Will Not Open
Does anyone know what would cause iTunes not to open? I did recently upgrade to a newer version, but since then I have unistalled it and reinstalled it to see if that would fix the problem, but it didn't. I also followed the instructions from Apple Support in the help article titled "iTunes will not open after upgrading" but that didn't help either. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks for your help...

I'm having a similiar problem.
Earlier this week iTunes was working fine, and yesterday I came back from class and iTunes was closed; So I tried to re-open it... it didn't re-open... I tried a different shortcut, nope, I went to the actual exe file, and no luck.
I re-installed it, nope.
I updated to iTunes 6 and had the same problem.
I looked aroudn the internet, and found one suggestion that it's norton, and to make it so no norton things open at Start-Up. This worked, but today, iTunes closed, and its been doing the same thing again. I looked and unchecked other programs, restarted, and it opened, but closed soon afterwards.

I have a HP, Pentium 4, all the requirements, Windows XP, with latests updates. and have enver had this problem before yesterday

You haven't found anything new about the problem, have you? I am still trying to figure it out.

opening msconfig and closing all services but microsoft ones, and then restarting usually does something... but it'll be open for a little and thne close after a few hours.
It's very annoying

Hi again,

I just tried disabling all of my Norton programs and then opening iTunes and it opened for me. Then it asked if I wanted to update to version 6.01, and I clicked yes. After the installation was finished I opened it again and it worked again, so maybe it does have something to do with Norton. I'm going to restart my computer and see if it will work with the Norton programs running.

I think Apple needs to release a patch or something; I can't stand using winamp

I just tried to open iTunes with the Norton programs open and it didn't work. It has got to be one of those programs. Which ones are you running? I'm running Norton Internet Security, Norton Password Manager, and Norton Anti-Virus. I might give them a call if it doesn't cost anything.

turned 'em all off; not using any one, it still won't open.
And when it does it closes either a few minutes or many hours after opening.

I don't have any Norton programs on my computer, and iTunes wouldn't open for me either. I uninstalled, then reinstalled it. Now it opens and gives me the user license agreement, but it closes itself after a second or so. Clicking buttons in the brief time before it closes doesn't help.

It is also happening to me, but I have no Norton products... Just McAfee Viruscan Enterprise. Let me know if you find anything out...
