Windows 7 SP1 x64

Be aware that if you have installed iTunes, there is an add-in to Outlook that will cause Outlook not to close. This is true for both Outlook 2003/2007. Need to go into Outlook options and disable the iTunes add-in. That will correct the problem. I am not even sure why iTunes would ever have an Outlook add-in to begin.

Itunes puts it addin on Outlook in case you decide to use Active sync. They try to consolidate everything I'm sure.

Windows 7 X64 RC1

Bingo. OMG People I knew that the superior brain power of the forums would come up with a solution. Turned off the Bloody iTunes extension and bang, it closes normally and saves me 40mb or ram. Thank you Everyone that has helped.

As for itunes, My wife only last week bought the first Ipod in our house, and about 3 minutes after installing itunes I wanted to smash it as what a joke of a program that is. I tried stopping all the services and start up crap but then it wouldnt work at all kept wanting to reinstall. If Ipods were as easy as the early MP3 Players were as you can just drag and drop MP3's straight to the device as a removable storage unit then I would have got one long ago. Its only simply the fact that itunes is crap and so so hard to navigate compared to my Nicely organised Windows Media Player Library. With 100+ Gigs of music its a lot to organise. Anyway thanks again everyone for your help.
