+all I've done is set up Windows Media Center today+
Well, that's good to know. Sounds like WMC takes control of the music folder in a rather nasty way!
Give your Windows UserID full control and ownership of the top-level Music folder, and make sure to check the box to apply the changes to all subfolders. The symptom of not being able to uncheck Read-Only and make it stick tells me your windows userID doesn't have control.
Here's what I'm talking about:
The article's title is how to delete files, but it has the screenshots you need to fix permissions so you can edit files.
P.S. Forgot to mention, you need to restart itunes so it will read the new permissions settings.

I followed the steps from the Apple rep I wound up speaking with. I had to do a clean uninstall/reinstall of iTunes and related components before I got it to work. I also had to make sure my Admin account was the "owner" of the iTunes file folder.
It was a pain but I finally have iTunes up and running, and luckily I didn't have to re-do all of my play lists or re-import anything.
