    hey, when i started my MBP today and updated the Itunes 7.3.2 update, i get a perian update error everytime i restart....i believe it says something to the effect that the update can not find the current version.....anyone else experiencing this error? if so, is there something wrong with my computer or what can i do? thanks

    It's a preference pane

    There's two ways to solve this issue.

    First, open System Preferences, click the Perian option down the bottom and disable the updates checkbox.

    Second, which is what I did, is to just uninstall and remove the preference pane altogether.

    I found that this annoying error message just kept popping-up, even though the mac wasn't connected to a network. The writers of the app should add a little intelligence to the app to prevent this happening ;) Something along the lines of "If no net connection then don't keep checking for updates!"
