_+*Itunes library file cannot be saved. You do not have enough access privileges for this operation.*+_

I get this error it just pops up every few minutes.
I contacted support they said to uninstall itunes
I Uninstalled itunes and I deleted the itunes library and recreated it.

    I've got a similar issue here. After searching through the forums a bit, I found that first of all, all folders accessed by iTunes should be public (have read and write access) for all users.

    Then there are different scenario's depending on what having a VAIO or using ESET as virus scanner. Currently, I'm trying to solve the problem with extra settings for ESET.

    Lastly, I'm trying to recover something I read about *.tmp files created by iTunes when error message occurs. They should be deleted or something, but I can't find the thread again.

    I'll try to keep you updated!

    Try looking through the suggestions in this thread:

    Also, you might check the file permissions for your iTunes folder. In My Computer or Windows Explorer, Right-Click your iTunes folder, and choose Properties. Go to the Security tab (not sure which version of Windows you have, but I have Vista and this is how to get there, it's probably similar).

    Make sure the user you login as is selected, and look in the box that says permissions, makes sure that box has all of the permissions enabled. If they are, exit the menu, go into the iTunes library, and check permissions on the iTunes Library file and perhaps the other files in this folder.

    If you're not on Vista, the menus might be laid out a little differently.
