If you are getting the banner offering to clean up your itunes library with a download / app. called "Tune Up" don't buy it. It will screw up you song titles bad. It's OK for album art but that's it.

That is all.

Winamp. It really whips the Llama's ass.

Honestly I dislike itunes. It is slow as heck (not to mention designed to filter your wallet into steve jobs' hand in any way possible).

Slow??? How can it be slow does it play 78's at 33 1/3 ???

It's just a player with a library. And about the money part I can store any file there for anywhere, torrents included.

When I maximise it on a standard machine (say my work machine which has 2048 megs of ram) it's slow to appear. The window defaults to being huge. I may be wrong but I believe it also takes up a much larger chunk than comparable software like winamp or windows media player.

I am curious, what exactly did this virus claim it was "cleaning up" in a simple indexed media library?

i use zune software along with my zune..... wayyyyyyyyyyy better if you actually buy your mp3 player for MUSIC. Yeah it doesnt have all the apps that you get with a ipod, but if you want the perfect mp3 player just for music then get the zune hd... ive had 4 ipods and this is the best purchase ive made for music.

It's not a virus. It claims to find missing information like artist or song title and album art work. It's actually pretty good on the art work it found about 200 missing art works. The problem comes in if you get lazy and use the auto fix feature (I didn't) but had I it would have replaced many correct titles with a wrong title and the right one would be lost forever.
