    Ok, so I keep on clicking iTunes and it keeps coming back that it:
    The application iTunes quit unexpectedly
    Mac OS X and other applications are not affected

    Click Relaunch to launch the application again. Click Report to see more details or send a report to Apple.

    Now Im new to Macs, but im 100% sure thats not good. What do I need to do?

    couple of things to try. see if you have any software updates then do them. but first try zapping your pram... shut down your computer then right after you start up your computer hold down theses keys...

    option command p r

    hold all four buttons before you hear the startup dong. keep holding it untill the computer restarts 4 times. then let go of the keys. see if that works if not. move your library and recreate it to see if that helps.

    and good luck

    try this. to see if it's your account or not. got o system preferences and create a new admin user. then start up itunes. if it runs there might be a preference that you need to remove thats causing the problem.

    Have you tried the obvious? Repairing your disk and repairing permissions? (Googling will tell you all you need to know)

    Try that. Also, do you have any iTunes plug-ins?

    Had the same problem with my itunes. What i did was just delete the whole file on itunes and reinstall it. Remove all the files.
