Why does iTunes re-open after I quit?


I have some rather annyoing behavior with my system: Whenever I close or kill -9iTunes it just keeps coming back up.

Any ideas how I can find the root cause of this?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Do you use any add-ons / controllers for iTunes, like Media Servers (eg. Plex, Front Row) or others for global hot-keys or song notifications? Sometimes these apps use applescript, which tends to launch applications if they´re not already running.

Actually I do. I use and the scrobbler starts with iTunes. I'll try deinstalling that. – er4z0r Feb 13 '11 at 10:20
