Ever since Apple went to iTunes 5, and now iTunes 6 as soon as I launch iTunes, it beachballs (aka crashes) and I have a force quit iTunes. It never did this at all with iTunes 4.9 or below. It does it in any account I log into, so its not user account related. Here is what I've tried: -repaired permissions -deleted iTunes prefs -deleted iTunes and re-installed -deleted everything iTunes (except music and libraries) and reinstalled everything. -deleted iPod pref -deleted iPod pref in OS X Library folder Nothing works! I had to restore an old iTunes library so I could go back to iTunes 4.9. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions as to how to fix this problem?
