    it's been happening only today, my iTunes keeps on opening and plays Audio or Video file.
    there's nothing wrong with my iTunes widget so the problem isn't there. Don't know where the problem is.
    it's really annoying, it just suddenly plays music or a video file.
    can you guys help me out? thanks! :)

    Did you install any other app that's related to iTunes, say CoverSutra perhaps?. Check your login items (System Preferences/Accounts).

    I heard that issue before. He checked everything iTunes Plug-ins, LaunchAgents, StartupItems, LoginPlugins, LaunchDaemons, By Hosts, removed plists from Preferences both user and root library, Archive and Install, created new user, booted to Safe Mode, repaired and verified permissions, reinstalled iTunes and...

    he ended up reinstalling OS X. Weird.

    OMG, this is sad, try to checkout applications that you last installed, it might be the culprit...

    I have an iTunes widget but as I said the widget is working fine.
    and I spoke to soon, it (iTunes) again opened up, I think it was when I plugged in a flash disk, 1st time it's done that.

    The same thing is happening to my iTunes as well. The only apps I installed before iTunes started acting crazy are the free apps from the Macheist nano bundle.

    I suggest you remove the widget even if it's working fine to see if iTunes behaves. You can always put it back. Check also if the widget needs an update.

    Dude, how about keep a back up of your music/video/app files and uninstall your iTunes using any 3rd party app (appcleaner,..etc)

    And download the latest iTunes available.
