ITUNES causes my pc to shut down

Whenever Itunes is running no matter what I'm doing, my computer shuts down and I uploaded the newest version and it still does it. Anyone out there able to help me figure it out? It is VERY annoying.
Thank you

hi amuzer!
I run spyware and anti-virus frequently. I'm now removing a lot of music from the pc. My pc likes to shut down now even when itunes isn't running at the time. Oh well, I figure it out eventually.
hmmmm. are you getting any sort of blue screen with that shutdown? if so, what sorts of of numerical and text codes are you getting? (ie: 0x[thingy] CAPSANDUNDERSCORES.) here's a reference on the sorts of things i'm asking about:
Troubleshooting Windows Stop Messages
if you're not getting any blue screens, and the PC is just behaving like someone has switched off the power, it may be worth checking the power supply on that PC. i've seen a few reports where the first sign of a dying power supply on a PC was that the PC would switch itself off during a CD import. (my guess there is that the spike in power consumption as the CD drive spins up is enough to kick the power supply over the edge. if the power supply was close enough to the edge, i guess other things could also provoke a power-off.)
other things to check on with switch-offs-without-blue-screens include whether or not the PC is overheating.
can anyone recommend a good freeware hardware diagnostics program for amuzer, that could pick up on these sorts of things?
love, b

  • ITunes preventing Mac OS X Shutting down

    Whenever I start iTunes I am unable to shut down my Mac Pro.   Latest versions of OS and of iTunes.
    Same behavior whether I quite iTunes or leave it running before shut down.   When quitting iTunes it does actually appear to go away.
    However, something is lingering on that is getting in the way of a shut down.
    Any ideas?

    How long are you leaving it on the charger?
    Are you connecting it directly to an electrical outlet or trying to charge via USB?  USB may not provide enough power to adequately charge the device if the battery is that low.
    If none of that helps, then the only option would be a warranty replacement as either the battery or system board is bad.

  • Error message caused by an improper shut down

    Hi
    When I try and lunch the web services from server admin I get this message in the log.
    Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 192.168.1.15 port 80
    Is this error message caused by an improper shut down, the apache processes are still hanging around and apachectl restart won't work.
    How can I clear them
    Thanks
    Message was edited by: stevewaters

    That message could be caused by many things - either a pre-existing copy of Apache, or some other process altogether.
    Did you install/enable Apache 2 on your server? If so, that could be the problem since Server Admin only knows how to manage Apache 1.3, so can't restart Apache 2.0.
    You can use the command-line tool lsof to find which process is listening to port 80. You'll then need to make the call as to how to fix it - either by shutting down the process, killing it, or changing the port that your Server Admin configuration listens to:
    <pre class=command>sudo lsof -i :80</pre>

  • I recently subscribed to iTunes Match.  iTunes is trying to match and upload songs not purchased from the iTunes store; however, it keeps shutting down before it finishes.  Has this happened to anyone else?

    I recently subscribed to iTunes Match.  iTunes is trying to match and upload songs not purchased from the iTunes store; however, it keeps shutting down before it finishes.

    Turn off iTunes Match while holding down the Option key (Shift for Windows) then quit iTunes. Open it after a few seconds, and turn iTM back on.

    OS X Mavericks caused my mac to shut down. How do you resolve this issue?

    Some crappy software you have installed caused your Mac to shut down. Boot into safe mode and see if you have a kernel panic log  in Console, System Diagnostic Messages. If so, post it here.

    Hello TheDonsCheek,
    Thank you for providing the details of the issue you are experiencing with the audio when nothing is playing in iTunes on your MacBook Pro. I recommend reviewing the following article to see if any third-party plug-ins could be causing the problem:

  • I am trying to connect my iPad to my windows pc ( xp) but it does not recognise the iPad and I get a blue screen error causing the pc to shut down. Any ideas

    I am still not able to connect my iPad 2 to my Pc ( windows xp). When I try to do so I get a blue screen error and the computer shuts down. I have reinstalled iTunes. iPod works fine. Any ideas?

    Not sure, but try these.
    Disable your firewall and anitvirus software temporarily. 
    Restart the iPad by holding down on the Sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut Off. To power up hold the Sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
    Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time (for about 10-15 seconds) until the Apple logo appears (ignore the red slider), then let go of the buttons.
     Cheers, Tom

    Hi AM_Kidd.
    Thanks for your reply.
    I have done a complete uninstall and re install of iTunes and all related apple programs from my laptop through control panel, add remove programs and also by going through program files and deleting all tracers of any left over folders remove programs may have missed.
    My apologies for forgetting to add this in my original post.
    Thanks again
