Ok, so I downloaded the latest itunes (version 9.0.2) yesterday cause they are requiring it in order to download their free itunes playlists. They offer free playlists once a month or so on facebook. Usually around 20 songs or so. Anyway, the latest download required an update so . . . hey, free songs so ok. The d/l went fine, everything is good except for the mini player. When you open itunes you can minimize the screen and it goes into your system tray. You just see and use the back/play/skip/volume buttons; click the restore button and you get itunes full screen again. Nice when you're playing games or whatever listening to music. Since the update none of the function buttons work and it doesn't restore. So it basically doesn't do anything, it just is. How zen. I found a solution on the itunes user forums -- something about the COM interface not being registered. It tells me to find the program file for itunes.exe on my computer . . . . can't find the .exe anywhere. wth? I just need to copy and paste an address in the regserver to fix it (I think) but . . . . I am not finding what I need. Anyone have a clue as to what I need to do? I'm running Vista (oh pipe down) on a Dell 1525. Thanks.
