Itunes 7.6 won't launch in Vista

I can't launch iTunes 7.6 using Windows Vista Ultimate. I was using it and
it was working fine until it froze up. I ended the task and now it won't
launch at all.

Things I have tried:

1. Uninstalling and Reinstalling iTunes.
2. Doing a system restore in Windows Vista.
3. I created another user account on my computer to use iTunes and it works!
Which means there is an issue with my user account. Any help?

Yes.
Try asking your question in a Vista group, rather than in this .NET
programming
group.
To find the group you need:

As you appear to be using a web interface...

http://www.microsoft.com/communities...D-2224A4FEB3EA

Select your language from the Tree View on the left, then scroll down to
Windows. In the Windows category, open Windows Vista. There,
select an appropriate group.

You'll get a lot more interest and feedback in a Vista group.

My advice:

1) Ditch Vista and find a copy of Windows XP Pro.

Next,
2) Ditch iTunes and use Windows Media Player.

What I want to do is get song info from iTunes if the application is running, using the ituneslib API (from Apple). One of the problem is that to check if iTunes is playing any songs I need to make the COM object right? But when I make it, it starts up the iTunes.exe application if iTunes is not already running. To counter that I made checkiTunesAlive, wich goes trough the running processes in windows and returns true if iTunes.exe is...

So I read everything in through COM,...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
