Why the fuck would iTunes or any product from Apple (or anywhere) care what Outlook is doing or if it's even there?!?

I have no settings, add-ons, mods, apps, or anything that would justify this!

And it came TWICE in a single update installation!!!

    Maybe it wanted to update a DLL in use by Outloo*? Or it had a lock on a file iTunes wanted to update.

    * "Typo" damn intentional.

    Well at least it didnt tell you "it appears you are running windows, please sell your computer and buy a new super expensive Mac if you would like to install iTunes."

    @jerodev Rich enough to buy an iPhone. Too poor to buy a mac.

    You have to close outlook because you can't have two programs getting lousier with every release at the same time.

    As with everything made by Apple, it just doesn't work like it should really. And on a related note, I'm not sure if it's only me but iTunes is so badly developed on Windows, it hurts my soul to even look at it let alone use it.

    Pretty sure iTunes used to sync contacts and such from your pc. So maybe it's something to do with that.
