    Hello there,
    Each time when I log on my account, my computer tells me that iTuneshelper quit unexpectedly.
    I googled a bit and tried something out, removed the com.apple.itunes.things,
    but nothing works. When I click report on the error, I get this:

    You could just disable ituneshelper in your System Prefereces > Accounts > Login Items. If you do that, iTunes will not auto-launch when you plug in your iPod/iPhone, but nothing else is affected AFAIK.

    Or, try this from http://www.mac-help.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11047. Be sure to quit iTunes before taking these steps.

    I just installed the new version of Itunes and got the same message that Itunes helper unexpectedly quits.

    This is what I did and it worked.

    In the Finder, choose Go > Go to Folder and type in ~/Library/ and click Go.
    Locate the iTunes folder and then drag it to the Trash.
    Choose Go > Go to Folder and type in ~/Library/Preferences/ and click Go.
    Locate the preference files that have names beginning with com.apple.iTunes and move them to the Trash.
    File Names should be:
    com.apple.iTunes.eq.plist
    com.apple.iTunes.plist
    com.apple.iTunesHelper.plist​

    Reboot after these steps and see if things clear up.
