It's still happening, every time I reboot. Am I better off uninstalling iTunes altogether, deleting all its libraries (corrupted or not), and starting over?

Buggy iMac

What would cause an iMac to act as if it were infected with Windows malware, when it's never been run in a Windows environment?

Multiple crashes, constant freeze-ups, even ejecting a CD unprompted.
