When the iTunes application launches a cryptic window appears. What should I do?

If it is not, select it from the list of suggested applications.

A large window with a very long link may appear to Windows users. This is normal. Click OK and proceed. You may choose to check the checkbox so you do not receive this pop-up window in the future.
