    Prevent iTunes from loading on startup


    Since I've upgraded to Windows 10, iTunes keeps loading on startup. I looked in the task manager under Startup, and disabled iTunesHelper. I don't see any other apps listed under Startup that are associated with iTunes or any other apple software.

    Am I missing something? It's a little annoying having iTunes loading on startup.

    I ran Autoruns, Unless I'm overlooking something, I don't see anything that is causing iTunes to load at startup. I did a filter for anything Apple related, only noticed some Appledriver and bonjour service entries. I didn't disable those because they shouldn't be causing this.

    I also tried Ccleaner. Same as Autoruns, I'm not seeing anything there that is causing iTunes to startup.

    Go to Services, find the itunes service(s) and change startup type to 'Manual'

    All I see under services is iPod Service, and it is already set to manual.

    Do any of you use iTunes? And have you noticed this same issue?

    Press Winkey+R, type shell:startup, and press Enter. Is iTunes there? Or is there an option in the iTunes settings to disable automatic startup?

    I can't even install that sh*t. Getting bunch of error messages. Apple can't make software, when they do, they make things so coercive. :/
