    Okay, so i signed up for genius, and they had those steps i had to wait for.. "sending your library info to apple", etc.

    Now this feature kind of sucks. I'm kinda paranoid now, i HAVE SOME downloaded songs, will they be able to do anything to me? I don't want anything to happen.

    How do i get rid of genius?

    There is no need to worry, just let it be. It doesn't use any personal info or info if they were gotten legally. All it does it take the info of the songs in your library, what you listen to, etc. Its all anonymous! You can turn Genius off though if you like.

    Don't panic. In the lower right-hand corner of iTunes, there will be a triangle pointing to the right in side a little box (the button should be next to the Genuis button). Click that and it will disappear.

    nothing will happen. don't worry.

    But you should get rid of genius anyway. It is the most worthless thing in the world! and it slows down iTunes

    It's not THAT useless. I use it to make a playlist, and just listen to songs that sound the same.
