Occasionally when i click on the iTunes icon, it doesn't open a window. The process will open in the task manager but no window will ever appear. I use to use kaspersky iss 8 and this happened quite often but since removing it, it still happens just much less frequently.

I had the same problem with iTunes.
Installed fine, ran fine to import and encode a WMV music file. Played fine.
If I closed the iTunes down and went to open it later, nothing happened. There was an incidence of iTunes in the processes section of Task manager that I could not get to Force Quit.
I had to reboot to use iTunes again.
While I had it going, I purchased a tv program to see if that would work. It did but the download kept freezing at any given point. It would continue to download after I restarted and relaunched iTunes. It took about 4 tries to complete the 640MB download.
I eventually uninstalled it because I don't need it and will wait for the glitches to get fixed.
I believe that most of the issues with iTunes has to do with some incompatibilities with various anti-virus programs. After disabling Norton Internet Security 2009 I was able to run iTunes, download podcasts and other files without a problem and without freezing. After spending some time with Norton, I created an exception in the scanning module so that it won't scan the iTunes folder. No more freezes. I did not have this problem in Vista (my Windows 7 installation is an upgrade) but it is a problem that exists with Vista and XP installations.
