iTunes out of control

    I haven't needed iTunes in the month I've had Mavericks. Last night I
    double-clicked a wav file and iTunes came up asking me to sign its long
    user agreement. I didn't have time. I quit iTunes and used Quicktime,
    as usual.

    Today I shut down. After I restarted, iTunes repeatedly launched
    itself, demanding that I sign the agreement. I finally relented,
    signed, and quit. Since then, it has repeatedly launched itself,
    telling me to listen to iTunes Radio.

    Why is it launching itself? How do I stop it?

    It doesn't like you?
    I've had no problem with iTunes under Mavericks.

    It's spying on me! Santa wants to know if I'm being bad so he can
    punish me at Christmas!

    Console would every few minutes report,

    1/11/14 3:11:08.222 PM iTunes[390]: BUG in libdispatch client:
    kevent[EVFILT_WRITE] delete: "No such file or directory" - 0x2

    When I accidentally launched iTunes, it had put iTunesHelper in my login
    items. I didn't have that under Mountain Lion.

    As I have no iTunes device except my Mac, it seems iTunesHelper should
    not have launched iTunes. I don't understand the libdispatch client
    reports in Console, but removing iTunes Helper from the launch items
    stopped the rogue launches.
