    Hi,
    A week ago my macbook wouldn't turn on without the safe mode start. Several things weren't working in this mode, and after a lot of searching online I did the turn off - turn on - press alt, cntrl, P, R and it started booting normally. BUT, itunes crashes whenever I try to turn it on and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I've also tried deleting some caches and the flip4mac thing. None of this has worked. My mac is so slow at the moment, and this problem isn't helping.
    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Delete the iTunes .plist files after copying them to your desktop. Restart iTunes. See if that fixes it.

    Macintosh HD / Users / YOUR USER / Library / Preferences / com.apple.iTunes.plist is the location of the .plist file -aggie- recommended to delete.

    Nope!

    I've tried that and it hasn't worked. It took longer to crash, but it still crashed.

    Have you repaired permissions?

    I'm having the exact same issue. Tried everything from removing plist files, reinstalling couple times to repairing permissions. Nothing seems to be working!

    Please post a crash log. That may help.
