    I can't figure out for the life of me how to keep iTunes from starting upon login. Task Manager and CCleaner both don't have any info on it

    I believe it has something to do with Plex, do you have it installed? if so go to iTunes preferences/advanced and click the share iTunes xml box. see how you get on.

    Remove Itunes Helper fromstartup using ccleaner, if you cannot find an entry I suspect your PC is infected.

    Look for an ITunes entry is the Services Control Panel.

    Run | services.msc

    If you find it, right click to open the properties, halt the service, then disable it.

    -Ctrl+Alt+Del, task manager. Startup tab
    -Search for 'schedule task' - might be in there

    Let us know...

    No iTunes entry in the services control panel. Compared with a different PC that I did a fresh install of Windows 10 this morning and the only program I added was iTunes, it doesn't automatically start on this second PC.

    IF it doesn't show up in the Services section of msconfig, then try the Startup tab in Task Manager

    Still shows iTunes helper as disabled in start up tab. That's the only Apple related entry. I uninstalled several "helper" programs that piggybacked with iTunes and that seems to have resolved the problem, though its strange this is the only machine that this occurs on.

    Just realized yesterday when I upgraded my Plex install that it is indeed a Plex related issue. Odd considering I don't have any of the iTunes options enabled in Plex. So strange. Your solution worked perfectly!

    I found a fix:
    "Go to your iTunes Preferences > Advanced and set the option Share iTunes Library XML with other applications. This fixed it for me. Finally! It was driving me insane!!!"
