I finally got it started after more than a week. I found, on this forum, the following:

Sound familiar?

I have come across several people who have had iTunes fail to start up in the past few days, all with v.9

Ok, from what I have seen in other posts the problem seems to be related to the Bonjour service which is the program mDNSResponder.exe

After you have tried to start iTunes, Right-click on the Taskbar -> select Start Task Manager -> Processes Tab -> select Show Processes from all users -> select mDNSResponder.exe in the list and then click End Process

iTunes should start, if it doesn't end the iTunes.exe process in the same way and try launching iTunes again.

If you do get iTunes to start then we can permanently solve the issue by disabling the Bonjour Service.

START -> Run -> type services.msc -> select Bonjour Service -> right-click, select Properties -> in the dropdown box for Startup Type select Disabled

Regards,
Reventon


Thanks, Reventon.

Don

Good to know I was able to help!

Despite being 2 major releases on from when I first saw that problem Apple hasn't managed to fix it (or other major bugs with iTunes for Windows).

What version of Windows do you have? You have it listed as Win98, but I doubt that is the case.
