Hi, Since updating to the latest version of ITunes 4.9017 (with Podcasts) my pc keeps crashing. Usually once a day at no fixed time. The error message in the event viewer (system) is shown at the bottom. I have been through all the options to set everything to manual so that it cannot be due to some automatic signal telling it to look for new software or Podcasts from the net. I know that its something to do with the pc looking to see if the IPOD is connected to the cradle (which its not) but I have had the POD for over a year and never had this problem till the latest installment of software! Any ideas would be welcome, its driving me crazy!!
