This may sound silly, but I delete all composer information and change the year of songs on an artist's greatest hits album to the original release date. But for some reason iTunes has recently begun automatically adding back the composers and changing the years back. And sometimes if I simply choose Get Info to edit a song's information, the window closes on it's own. When I re-open it I find that iTunes has added information that I wasn't seeking to edit. How can I stop this? I can't find any option that would allow me to curtail this. Also, I have Genius turned off.
