    For some reason iTunes keeps opening on its own. I quit the program, then it does it again. I can't figure out why. Any ideas? or should I just reinstall it?

    There's nothing in the CD drive and I don't have my iPod connected either. Which is what makes no sense.

    Was there anything you did, like installs, just before this started to happen?

    I think the widget was doing it for me. Not sure though...

    I didn't do anything before that started happening. I had put the computer to sleep and when I came back it started doing that. Restarting it seemed to stop the problem though. So I think its okay now.

    When I had this happen, it was a visualizer that was causing it, I think this one.

    Any iTunes widgets (or other "helpers") running...? :)

    Edit: I see others suggested this while I was answering another thread. Glad you solved it though, but you never said if you had any widgets running... :)

    In that case, just repair permissions and restart. :)

    I had the same problem, it is the iTunes widget, just reload it.
    If you keep a closer look at an Activity Monitor, you will notice that at some point the iTunes widgets will become unresponsive (as indicated by the red text) and after that iTunes will launch.
    So far this thing hasn't occurred again.
