Any suggestions?
Just leave iTunes open when it's working, if you just happen to sleep your laptop, like most of us, and don't turn it all the way off too often.

That, and wait for Windows 7 updates. It's a new OS and there are bound to be compatibility issues.

That said, Windows 7 gives you the option to run programs in a Compatibility Mode (run as WinXP, Vista, etc) I think. Try Googling that or right clicking on the iTunes icon.

How's that for some non-smartass advice?

If anyone is interested having smilies on the iphone for text messages/email etc here's how you get them for free:

1. Download Spell Number from the App Store (its free).
2. Open the app and enter the number 91929394.59
3. Close the application using the Home Button (you do not push any buttons, just enter the number and close the app).
4. Open your stock Settings app and go into General > Keyboard > International Keyboard > Japanese and turn on Emji.
5. Close Settings application using the Home Button

To use the emoticons, just go into any application in which you use the keyboard and you will notice a new globe icon next to the number icon. When you select it, it will bring up all the available emoticons.

The company that I bought my extended warranty from went bankrupt. All I got was a notice saying--sorry, if you had ever filed a claim, it wouldn't have gone anywhere.

No, Honda surprisingly.
I think each dealership picks which companies they sell for extended warranties.

Oldsmobile--
I've owned 4 Olds in my life. Both my Grandpa and Aunt worked at a dealership for a while. 2--1978, 2--1979 Cutlasses.

aaaand i have it back.

i think the fan may have been stuffed for some time - it's running quieter and cooler than it has in months.
