Default Laptop question

My laptop, an Acer Aspire 5739G, has a strip of media controls along the top, a kind of touch strip that can perform the following functions
  • Volume control slider
  • Skip back
  • Skip forward
  • Play/pause
  • Stop
  • Wireless ON/OFF
  • Bluetooth ON/OFF
  • Back up manager open
  • Media centre open
My problem is when i use the highlighted keys with iTunes to control the media and i press any of those buttons the function gets performed 4 times, for example it skips 4 songs forward or backwards, or it play/pause/play/pauses. I don't know how to fix this and it's really annoying me, all suggestions taken and rep up for grabs here.

Thanks in advance

Drivers are all up to date, the controls work with media player, just not iTunes
