iTunes continues to run after closing

  1. I recently bought a new iPod Touch and after connecting it to my PC, iTunes continues to run after closing the program. I uninstalled iTunes and reinstalled with no change.

    After I close iTunes, my PC runs slow. I checked Task Manager and iTunes .exe is still running and taking 99% of resources. I stop the process in Task Manager and everything runs fine...until I open iTunes and it's the same issue again and again.

    Any suggestions?

    How long does it stay in the Task Manager after you've closed it ? Was it doing something when you closed it ?

    I let it go for about 30 minutes the first time before ending the process in Task Manager. (I don't both waiting anymore.) I wasn't in the middle of anything (no downloading or sync-ing).

    Upgraded touch software to 2.0, uninstalled an reinstalled new version of iTunes, reinstalled VIA chipset drivers, reconfigured preferences so that less auto-features start, changes
