My iTunes wont close and is preventing my laptop from shutting down

I plugged out my iPod touch when iTunes was asking me whether I wanted an update or not, and now iTunes wont close and has frozen, preventing my laptop from shutting down. I have intel Celeron inside and Windows 7.

Mail is open but it is frozen, being this the reason why you cannot open the Mail window. Press Alt, Command and Esc keys or go to  > Force Quit, select Mail and force quit it. Finally, you will be able to turn off or restart the MacBook

  • Is there a way to prevent ibooks author from shutting down after just one or two uses of the alpha tool?

    Is there a way to prevent ibooks author from shutting down after just one or two uses of the alpha tool?

    Hello One Job at a time,
    Deleting the application will not delete your projects.
    Normally I keep all my work files on a separate drive.
    If you command click on the title name of your project you will get a drop down path to show you the location of your book project.
    or you can click on the drop down triangle beside its name to duplicate.
    Just remember where you saved the file too.
    In your applications folder on your computer select the iBA icon and press delete and also erase / empty the trash can.
    You can then go back to the APP STORE and install iBA from new again.
    I hope this helps.
    Regards,
    Nigel

  • How to track down an app that is preventing my iMac from shutting down

    Hello! I lately discovered that an application is preventing my iMac from shutting down . I have The Sims 3 installed on my computer but i don't think it's preventing my computer from shutting down.
    So my question is, how can I find out what app is preventing my iMac from shutting down.

    What's Keeping Me?

    How do you prevent the computer from shutting down when in sleep mode and plugged in?

    Thanks tjk.
    Those are great suggestions and got me looking in places I had not considered before. Unfortunately, the problem remains. The System Preferences did not have the shut down option activated and there are no parental controls active on the computer.
    Any other suggestions are welcome.

  • Why is Firefox preventing Windows 7 from shutting down? I must force quit.

    When I try to shut down Win7 (Home Premium) , Firefox hangs and must be manually force quit. If I close Firefox before shudown, there is no issue. There are no warnings when I open or close Firefox (3.6.8).

    I have the same problem. I run 3 different PCs, all with Windows 7 x64, FireFox 9 in all cases and on all systems this problem happens. When I shutdown Windows while FF is still running, FireFox will hang up and it has to be force closed. When I exit FF before shutting windows down, no problems occur.

  • Prevent Certain Users From Shutting Down the Mac

    Hello,
    I have a group of Mac Minis which are secured in an equipment rack. When someone shuts the computer off, the rack has to be moved and the Mac powered-on, manually. This is not as easy as it may seem. Is there a way to remove the "Shutdown" item from the Apple menu. I need the "Logoff" and "Reboot" the options to still be available. I do nt have an OS X server, from which to project these settings from Workgroup Manager. Is there some .plist I can edit, or permission I can change?
    Thanks

    Not possible without hacking the system and even then it is not foolproof. If you Google something like mac os x disable shutdown you'll get an idea of the situation.
    And if you could remove the command from the Apple menu there is still the key combination to deal with.
    If this is a social problem, users mistakenly shutting down the system then maybe education would be a better approach to take.
    If it is willful or the inconvenience of this being done is very great then maybe you should suggest getting the serve for $20 just to have the ability to handle this.
    regards
    Message was edited by: Frank Caggiano - it does appear that tinkertool says it does address the 'shutdown option in the finder'. Interesting to see if this is the Apple menu. Worth a shot

  • Mail keeps preventing me from shutting down

    This has happened a few time now that when I try to shut down or restart my computer it doesn't untill I force quit mail even though it doesn't freeze or crash it just keeps saying mail is preventing my computer from shutting down. When I ok that though mail doesn't show it's window when I click it in the dock and thats when I have to force quit it.
    I do keep mail as a seperate desktop or "space" but it works fine till I have to shut down. This doesn't happen all the time but its done it now and again, has this happened to anyone else?

    Yes, this has been going on for a while. If you open Window > Activity' from the Mail menu bar, you should see that what's happening is that its trying to close the connection with your webmail server.
    Sometimes it happens to me, sometimes it doesn't. I suspect its just down to the internet connection.

  • I'm installing java 8 but in the middle I skip the installation because it took so long and now I can't even shut down or cancel the installation.. Please help!

    Hello christine valentina,
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    If the failed installation of Java is preventing your computer from shutting down normally, then I'd like you to please first try to force quit the unresponsive installer.

  • Itunes wont open and when re-installed received this msg: Service Apple mob device failed to start.  You have insufficent privileges to start system svc.  Help?

    Itunes wont open and when re-installed received this msg: Service Apple mob device failed to start.  You have insufficent privileges to start system svc.  Help?

    Download Itunes from Apple.com, not from within Itunes.
    Redo the install, following the below procedure.   However, when you re-install Itunes,  right click and run the install as administrator.   For Win 7, you have to hold down the cntrl and shift keys when you right click and then "run as administrator" will be an option.
    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (Vista, Win 7 & later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    iTunes
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall move on to the next item)
    Bonjour
    Apple Application Support
    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
    The uninstall and reinstall process will preserve your iTunes library and settings, but ideally you would back up the library and your other important personal documents and data on a regular basis. See this user tip for a suggested technique.
    Please note:
    Some users may need to follow all the steps in whichever of the following support documents applies to their system. These include some additional manual file and folder deletions not mentioned above.

    (1) Download the Windows Installer CleanUp utility installer file (msicuu2.exe) from the following Major Geeks page (use one of the links under the "DOWNLOAD LOCATIONS" thingy on the Major Geeks page):
    http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=4459
    (2) Doubleclick the msicuu2.exe file and follow the prompts to install the Windows Installer CleanUp utility. (If you're on a Windows Vista or Windows 7 system and you get a Code 800A0046 error message when doubleclicking the msicuu2.exe file, try instead right-clicking on the msicuu2.exe file and selecting "Run as administrator".)
    (3) In your Start menu click All Programs and then click Windows Install Clean Up. The Windows Installer CleanUp utility window appears, listing software that is currently installed on your computer.
    (4) In the list of programs that appears in CleanUp, select any iTunes entries and click "Remove", as per the following screenshot:
    (5) Quit out of CleanUp, restart the PC and try another iTunes install. Does it go through properly this time?

    Update them to what?
    Are they not correct as purchased from iTunes?
    I seriously doubt that the track names are incorrect in the iTunes store and when downloaded to your computer.
