If you use AVG Anti-Virus on Windows (or on a Windows VM), you might want to disable it until they send out a patch for their latest update.  According to a rapidly filling Apple Support thread, the latest update flags iTunes.dll and iTunesRegistry.dll as "Trojan horse Small.BOG".  There isn’t a listing for "Trojan horse Small.BOG" on AVG’s website so the flag is somewhat strange.

Another work around is  to add "C:\Program Files (x86)\ipod" as an exception under Resident Shield>Manage Exceptions>Add Path.

Oh, right, you use Mac and haven’t had anti-virus software in years? Via Slashdot
