See if itunes will open with a different library file.
Press AND HOLD the shift key. Keep pressing until you see the prompt to choose or create a library. Create a new blank library - does itunes stay running?iMac 10.5/ Win 7/WinXP, Windows 7, external hard drive, color U2 iPod, 1G shuffle, 2nd gen Nano

That new test library probably got named iTunes1...you can just delete that after you close itunes.
You can recreate your library using these steps. It should get back everything except Date Added.
