Does anyone else have this issue? I am using the latest version of iTunes on Windows Vista, but this issue has been around for a while in my experience. I double-click on the iTunes icon on my desktop. I get the hourglass for a second, but then nothing happens. I can do this as many times as I like and the program will not launch. Checking Task Manager, I see the iTunes process is running as is the iTunes helper. I kill both, then try to launch iTunes - same thing. Nothing. The only way I can for sure get iTunes to launch is to connect my iPhone. That causes the program to start and the sync process to begin. What is the deal? Anyone else have this problem?
