iTunes refusing to open

  robzwolf 21:54 PM 15 May 11

I'm running a Windows 7 32-bit PC. On hearing that iOS 4.3.3 was out, I wanted to update my iPhone 4 to it. However, iTunes just refuses to open. I click the icon on my dock/taskbar, it looks like it's open for a couple of seconds, then it appears closed again. I don't even see the window open. I've even reinstalled iTunes to the latest version, still to no avail. Any help please? I was wondering if a specific process was blocking iTunes from opening. Here's a list of all my processes.

Any suggestions please!

I don't want to do a fully clean install, I've got my iPhone all backed up on there :/

Okay I've uninstalled iTunes then reinstalled it and it STILL WON'T OPEN!!!!! By now I'm getting really fed up because I NEED TO BACK UP MY IPHONE!!!

Should I contact Apple? Or will they hate me for having a Windows PC?
