Default stupid itunes

Ok my dad and I share a computer... He has the ipod nano and has had it for about 2 weeks. All of a sudden everytime i switch to my user itunes pops up and wants me to "install" or "agree" to w/e it is.
I don't need itunes and i don't want it popping up on my screen.

Is there away to get rid of it from coming up on mine but stay on his username?

and if you havn't guessed we have win XP

thanks for any help

boo

I HATE itunes with a passion. I refuse to use my IPOD just because I would have to install itunes..lol..eh it was free..anywho there is something that starts up with the PC that itunes sneaks in there.. Just go to your START menu then RUN then type MSCONFIG. Disable all items except your virus scan. APPLY, reboot. This will not harm the program itself in anyway it simply does not start with windows (which is a good thing).

i totally agree with you. Apple should live on the street, or AMD should buy them out.

id use winamp instead of ITunes.

Yea I've been meaning to try out winamp with that ipod add-on. The only way I add music to my iPod is using itunes on one of the Macs at work..Never will itunes see my work/home PC As for quicktime I would stay far away from it as well. It is just as bad as itunes Apple=The Devil. Use the quick time alternative.
