iTunes won't open : solved ?

Started after upgrading to 11.4.  Downgrading to 11.3 didn't help, nor did making a new Windows user.  Symptom is click icon and nothing happens, usually can't kill process.  Re-installing quicktime seemed to work for 1 day.  Strangely, this works for me.

Open itunes, let it hang like normal.

Open a chat program called Digsby, must trigger some kind of library.  Now a blank white itunes window opens and I can't get to my desktop.

Open taskmanager and kill itunes related process (ituneshelper, ipod stuff, distnote, etc).

After that itunes opened almost right away and seems to be "ok"
