OS X V10.7 Lion :: Internet Sharing Keeps Starting Upon Reboot?

Jun 21, 2012

I have lion installed on a mac mini with 2 usb ethernet adapters.  Everytime I reboot the mac mini, it enables Internet Sharing and changes the IP on the 2 USB ethernet interfaces to and  How do I stop this from happening.  Disabling it in the preferences panel and resetting the IP addresses on each interface get wiped out once the server is rebooted.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Stop Applications Automatically Starting In User Account

Jun 1, 2012

Parental control is active, but no restrictions on which applications they can use; just website restrictions and time limits.Allowed them to modify the dock.Each time they log in various applications automatically start and removing them from the startup list does not seem to solve the problem, and one is not even on the list.The "re-open windows" check box is NOT selected when they log out and I watched them quit the applications before logging out.

Example: for one account iTunes Helper always shows up on the startup list... I try to remove it in their account and it just pops back up... this appears to cause iTunes to autostart each time the log in... annoying.

Example: same account, the System Preferences always start up... fortunately it is locked so the kid can modify anything. But again, annoying.

I just installed VM Fusion 3.0, it is really much faster running Windows Vista with it.

Anyway, my main issue is, when I opened Activity Monitor, I realized that VMF 3.0 runs in the background when the computer start, is there anyway to totally shut it off if I am not using it?

Also, on the top right tool bar, there is a "bi-head" arrow of VMF 3.0, how to get rid of it?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Stop F8 Key From Launching ITunes?

Feb 6, 2012

How do I remove any application association with the F8 key? F8 is currently launching iTunes when I hit it and since I don't use iTunes on my work computer and need F8 for other functionality this is interfering with my workflow. I do not see any association with the F8 key in System Preferences > Keyboard Preference Pane > Keyboard Shortcuts. The only thing listed there is: Move focus to staus menus ^F8 I also do not see any way to remove the F8 association in any of the iTunes preferences.

ITunes :: Itunes Won't Open - Stuck On Box With Apple - Acting Like Starting Up

Jan 21, 2009

I have an iBook G4 that runs on OS X. Today, my software update box popped up, and I downloaded the new version of itunes. It worked. Then the other update didn't finish. I'm not sure if that's connected. Now, my itunes won't open. When I first tried, nothing would happen. So I restarted the computer, but it wouldn't full restart (stuck on the box with an apple, acting like it was starting up but never did). So I did an archive install with my discs. That worked. But now when I try to open itunes, a box pops up and says that "you cannot use this application with this version of OS X." What?? I feel tricked and panicky. What can I do?

MacBook :: Why Isn't ITunes Starting

Jun 23, 2014

I have a Mid 2007 MacBook (Core 2 Duo, 2.20 GHz, 2GB, OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard) and I am having a problem with iTunes.  I have a fresh install and was going to sell the computer to a client when I realized that iTunes had a serious problem.  Whenever I go to launch iTunes, I click on the dock icon.  It bounces multiple times on the first attempt, but the program never launches by showing "iTunes" in the top menu.  The little light never comes on beneath the icon either.  Also note that on each attempt afterwards the icon only bounces once and then stops.

OS X :: ITunes Starting In 32bit Mode

Jun 2, 2010

I was messing around with Audio Hijack and it was working just fine. But now it seems iTunes always starts in 32-bit mode (even without audio hijack running). Also it seems to take quite a while to open the app. If I log in as root (or via a Terminal) I can open iTunes just fine, 64-bit and it opens instantly. Also when I log out OS X hangs a while on the screen you get when he's logging you out (the blue-ish screen).

Applications :: Damaged ITunes Files - Starting Over

Oct 9, 2009

So the last couple of days iTunes has been hell for me. Couple of days ago, when I opened iTunes like any other time, I was presented with an error message saying my itunes library was damaged. Anyway, long story short, I've started over and created a new one and imported all my songs, podcasts, videos etc in. That all worked well, but I was still missing my precious play counts and ratings, though I was able to import my playlists. So what I did was import one of the itunes database files from the "previous itunes libraries" option. What happened then was that it removed all the files that I purchased after the date in which the database file was created. Annoying as I can't remember every song I've purchased.

The 2 main problems at the moment is that the files I purchased are already in my iTunes media folder, I found that out by just searching some songs I remember, but the matter of remembering each one is impossible. I contemplated the idea of "Add to library" but I think all that does is import everything again into the library rather than find any ones that aren't already in it. Is there anyway to get iTunes to automatically find the files that aren't already my library and just add those? Second problem is I have is the dreaded '!' next to many of my songs, again I am sure that I have these files in my media folder (I've checked), iTunes has just (for some reason) not found those files. Again, is there a way for iTunes to automatically find those files? As opposed to me finding and clicking on everyone of those '!'s and locating the files manually?

Applications :: With Every Computer Reboot ITunes Forgets IPod Touch

May 10, 2010

I just bought a new MacBook Pro and used Migration Assistant to move my old MacBook files to the new machine. Ever since the file migration, my brand new iPod Touch is having a lot of problems connecting to iTunes. Here's the deal: When connected by USB to the new MBP, the iPod charges fine, but is not recognized by iTunes (does not show up at all). After mucking around a bit (unplugging/plugging in, deleting iTunes plists, and repairing disk permissions) I decided to reinstall iTunes. I followed Apple's directions to completely remove iTunes and after reinstalling iTunes the iPod was detected and all was working great again...until I shut down and restarted my computer and the iPod was no longer recognized.

I proceeded to uninstall/reinstall iTunes again. It worked!...until I restarted my computer and iTunes would not recognize the iPod again. Interestingly, each time that I followed Apple's directions to completely remove iTunes, I could not find iTunesHelper running in either Activity Monitor or present in the start-up items of System Preferences as the Apple KB suggested it should be. I should also mention that the new iPod Touch has no problems being detected by iTunes on my old MacBook (the source hard drive for the file migration). This is baffling to say the least. I'm getting ready to forget Migration Assistant, nuke my new MBP's user account and start from scratch.

I rebooted my Macbook Air (Mac OS X Lion) and the menubar doesn't show up.  The top of the desktop is blank.  No date/time.  No wifi icon. Nothing.  When I launch an application then the menubar shows up.  When I close the application no menubar.  Also, when I option+right-click on the Finder icon in the Dock there is no option to relaunch Finder. When I open a folder the menubar for Finder doesn't show up.  What should I do?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Reboot MBP To Factory Settings

Jun 5, 2012

I just bought a MBP 13" from my friend. It has OSX Lion pre-installed on it so theirs no boot disc. I read the instructions online about rebooting but I didn't do it correctly. What I wanna do it get it back to as if the computer was being turned on for the 1st time. I changed the user name to my name, but when I go to the Air Drop section in Finder, his name still pops in that area. I wanna make it so that everything is under my name. Basically, the login user has my name on it. Air Drop has his name and when you go to USER folder, his name is there too. Want to get it so all of it is under my name.

Applications :: Starting Fresh With ITunes 9.0.1 - Importing Music?

Sep 24, 2009

Had some library troubles with iTunes 9, and decided to do a clean install of not only the program, but of Snow Leopard itself. I was waiting on an iTunes update to come out before I decided to re-load my library in, since I didn't want to risk repeat problems (I've always been one of those bleeding edge-ers, and this is the 1st time I've ever had a problem/held back...guess I learned my lesson). 9.0.1 is out and seems to address the problems I'd been having, but I caught the "start fresh" bug and I want to start over with iTunes. No playlists, play counts, etc need to be saved.

I do have a full backup of my previous system and I'm wondering what the best way to get all of my music back into iTunes is.
- Do I use the Finder to simply drag the contents of my old "iTunes Music" folder into the new "iTunes Media" folder?
- Do I drag the whole folder and drop it onto the iTunes window? (I'm worried this method won't put iPhone apps, ringtones, audiobooks and podcasts in the right place).
- Do I use the import function?
Prior to making the backup, I did upgrade to/select iTunes Media Organization

ITunes For Mac :: Disabling From Automatically Starting When Headphone Plugged In

Dec 3, 2014

I have a Macbook Pro running OS X Yosemite Ver 10.10.1. Whenever I plug in my Apple headphone it in, the iTunes automatically starts and I would like to disable the same. I am talking on FaceTime using my head phone, (I am guessing some small movements of headphone triggering this) the  iTunes starts automatically and the songs start to play during the FaceTime call. 

Does any one know how to disable the iTunes from not starting up automatically, whenever a Headphone is inserted into Mac. I can start iTunes whenever I want like any other application. But I just don’t want any automatic starting of iTunes, when I plug the headphone!
