Every time I launch iTunes, a box pops up that says: I always hit cancel, because I don't want automatic downloads, and I don't think I should have to sign in to Apple just to listen to my own music. As soon as I do, another box pops up that says: I click cancel again, and then I'm finally free to use my computer as I wish. Is there a way to stop these boxes from appearing? Why would sign in be required to use iTunes to access music on my computer? It seems like a pushy way of trying to get users to allow Apple to snoop.
