    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Pro 9.7, AppleTV (4)
    Does iTunes launch OK without spaces enabled?

    Have you tried allocatting a particular 'space' for iTunes to open in using the Expose & Spaces System Preferences Panel?

    yes! it does the same thing with spaces enabled or when it isn't enabled. I also created a guest account and opened itunes with that and it opened properly..It is only on the admin account with spaces enabled or not...that it wont show up. It opens and is open at the top but it doesnt show my songs or the main itunes pag

    OK, so at least we know that spaces is nothing to do with the problem.

    As a starting point I'd suggest deleting the plist file:
    /Users/<yourusername>/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunes.plist

    Then repairing permission from Disk Utility

    Open Disk Utility (spotlight search for it or look in your Applications folder).

    Click on your Mac Harddisk on the list in the left pane. Click the First Aid 'tab'. At the bottom of the First Aid pane you'll see a Repair Disk Permissions button. Click it and let it do it's thing.
