    Hi,

    I recently removed iTunes from my start up folder at:

    C:\Users\(User-Name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    But iTunes still launches at startup. Does anyone know why?

    Thanks!


    (Windows 7)

    I didn't see an iTunes forum. Where would you suggest I put this?

    I've moved it to Windows on the Mac, it's probably the best place for iTunes for Windows help.

    Try going to Start and open Run (search Run, and open it).

    Type "msconfig" and a window will pop open. Open the BOOT tab and look for something there regarding iTunes. If there is something, uncheck it and reboot.

    Let me know if that gets it!

    use MSCONFIG.exe

    go to the services tab, click "hide microsoft services" and uncheck all of them

    do the same on the startup tab

    I didn't find iTunes under the boot tab, but I did find it in the startup tab. Seemed to work. Thanks!
