    Ok so ever since I installed iTunes my PC has been lagging etc.

    Recently today, my Internet Connection was playing up, and I could not access any sites. I stopped all the iTunes Processors and it has worked fine since.

    Can anyone help, or does anyone know a good alternative to iTunes. I want to make sure it still has the iPod Updates though.

    Thanks.

    Quit MSN messenger and all the other unnecessary crap you have running. Should speed it up slightly.

    I have tried that, its not iTunes itself that is lagging, its making everything else lag. MSN hardly effects my PC. I got 2.5GB RAM so im ok. iTunes just screws my PC over.

    Wow. I had the same thing with my old Windows 2000 PC with like 1 GB of RAM, maybe less. Anyway, wikipedia it. there's a lot of alternatives.
