How stop iTunes from automatically coming up when PC turns on?

I installed iTunes last week. Now, every time I turn on my PC, iTunes automatically comes up. How can I stop it from coming up automatically, and make it come up only when I want it to?

I think you may have the "Show iTunes icon in the system tray" option selected in Edit->Preferences, Advanced tab, General sub-tab (uncheck it to turn it off). Or you have a copy of the iTunes short cut in one of your Start Up folders (delete it to stop auto loading).



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

Is your iPod always connected? The iPod has a setting "Open iTunes when iPod is connected." If this is on, and the iPod is connected when the computer starts up, it may be what is causing iTunes to open.

That was it! My iPod was connected. Thanks, Monsieur Lebkin
