Hi. I just upgraded to Itunes 10 yesterday. I work at home on my computer, so I leave itunes on pretty much all the time. Today everything has been very slow, so I looked to check processes and applications and discovered itunes was running at 95-98% of my CPU! It has never done this before. What do I need to do to get it back to normal? I have Genius Bar turned off and auto update is not selected.
Btw, I run virus scans every day or so, as well as malware/spyware scnas. I also run CCCleaner, although not recently, and defrag once a week.
Here's my hjt log

Well, I was actually several versions back and kept having problems, so I had to upgrade. Not even sure how I could get the old one. Plus, my husband has v.10 and wants to use the home sharing function, so I am kinda stuck. Any other suggestions?

I have 2.09 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM.
Also, I used my itunes in the last hour and it was running 35-48% (which still seems a little high to me). I have no idea why it changed, and still want to know what to do if it spikes back up again.
Thanks
