probably a simple answer

I'm loving the new taskbar, but for some reason itunes doesn't act like other programs, it opens a second icon on my taskbar...is this normal for the program?

No, it is not. Did you recently upgrade to Windows 7? You may need to reinstall the program.

I had the same problem with Mozilla minefield on my computer. Here is how I fixed it.

Launch your application which is acting flakey, once opened, right click on the icon in the taskbar and pin it to the taskbar. Now, delete the first icon. Just launch now from that second icon and it should stay put.

Why go through all that trouble when simply reinstalling will do the trick?
iTunes is the only program that I had that problem with when upgrading to Windows 7.

that worked brilliantly, i had already tried unpinning and pinning the direct .exe from the programs folder and that didn't work, so i'm not sure why this was any different. thanks though.

Cool. Not sure what causes that to happen, but it's pretty darn simple to fix once you know.

Glad that got you squared away. A whole lot faster then uninstalling and reinstalling...which may not have fixed the issue.

Glad you got it worked out! Enjoy your Windows 7! It is working very nice for me so far.

@pparks- Ah, I see what you mean now! I wish I would have thought of that, but reinstalling did the trick for me too.

All that trouble? It Requires 1 Double-Click, and 4 Single-Clicks.

Yeah, I just thought at first that it was a Mozilla Minefield update which caused it....since I hadn't even seen it before. So, I just experimented a bit with it and determined that after opening it, I could repin it to the super bar and that worked.

It's good to see that reinstalling is also an option...in the event the other workaround doesn't....well...work.
