iTunes Won’t Close on Windows 7

This one was an easy fix though took me a bit to track down. Start -> Run -> services.msc and disable the Bonjour Service. Either through a bug in the music sharing component of iTunes or just a “helpful feature,” it won’t let you exit iTunes while the Bonjour service is running.

    Apple’s software under windows is a constant headache for me on my users’ machines. I regularly disable the itunes helper service, bonjour, and the apple updater.
    Funny story, I somehow ended up with a machine with only the apple updater on it. it would occasionally update itself, but had no other apps to update. Made me giggle. 🙂

    • It seems to keep getting worse as time goes by though. It used to be at least semi-reliable but it’s going downhill. Apparently there are even issues cropping up on the Apple platform as well so it seems like it’s not just limited to Windows.
