    I've recently upgraded to OS 3.2.2
    It appears that ever since that upgrade, a window pops up very frequently with iTunes-Password request for my itunes account.

    This was not the case before, and I am wondering if there is a setting that got screwed during the upgrade that would cause this.
    How can I prevent iTunes from requesting a password all the time, even when I'm doing something totally different (like checking email).

    Thanks for some help!

    Best,
    Kai

    Trust me this is a good thing. I have a friend that was ripped off over $800 purchases in iTunes.

    And they DID ask for password. iTunes DO NOT give back your money either. No matter how long you bitch.

    Keep it.

    Well, for me it was the first time when I upgraded to 3.2.2

    Before, it would only ask for password when I was in App Store or iTunes Store, and was going to purchase something.

    Now, every so often, the stupid window pops up. I can't be the only one where this is happening, can I?

    Hopefully someone knows of a fix for this.

    If it pops up randomly, even when you are not purchasing something through iTunes, The App Store or iBooks, then I have to ask... are you jailbroken? This sure sounds like spam to me. If it was me, I would immediately perform a complete restore of your iPad.

    Not jailbroken, and no intention to do this.

    I just found what very likely the solution to this problem.

    Called Apple Care, and after a few checks they suspected something was odd with the iTunes account. Turns out, there was a song that I tried to download same day like the upgrade, but didn't complete. That song was "stuck" in the download list. Therefore, iTunes was constantly trying to complete that download - makes sense I guess!!!

    We learn something new each day.
