    First of all click the shortcut in the start menu or on your desktop, then open the task manager window (ctrl+alt+delete) and go to th processes tab. Then check for iTunes.exe (not iTuneshelper.exe) If this process is running but not displaying, give it time, if it is there then it willl start eventually.
    If it is not there, first of all, navigate in explorer to the iTunes program directory, usually its: C:\Program Files\iTunes. And double click the exe file called iTunes in there, this should ensure that it is not a broken shortcut problem. So once you have double clicked the exe, view the task manager again and see if iTunes is there.
    If not, go to the apple website and download the "fixes" for iTunes XP. (I presume your on XP). Hope that gets you somewhere.
    Oh and btw, you can get an iPod out of restore mode without iTunes
