iTunes Won't Open

I'm not sure if this is in the right place but here goes...

Hi everyone,
I have iTunes pinned to my taskbar, and I clicked it and it acts like its opening, then just stops the window that shows a program is open disappears.
I have tried going to Start>iTunes>iTunes to start it also, and it still won't open.
Does anyone know how I can get iTunes to work?
Thanks in advance!

End Process, wait a minute or two and try to open iTunes again from the taskbar
