I have iTunes on both my OSX and my XP PC's. On the XP PC there are  
no extra background processes due to iTunes. But when I open iTunes I  
notice two extra processes: "iTunes.exe" and "iPodService.exe". After  
I have closed down iTunes the iPodService.exe stays active. I use  
this PC for concerts with Mobius and I wouldn't open any other  
application before I play; it's rock stable.
