    I mean, if the ITL is exactly the same, it has to be one of the other library files causing this issue in itunes, don't you think?


    Possibly a registry key of some description related to the file going off?

    (If some kind of registry optimiser is running on start-up or shutdown, that might be causing the symptoms.)

    Make sure windows explorer isn't hiding system files.
    Unless you're using a really old version of itunes, like v7, there should be a sentinel file in the same folder with the ITL, XML, & ITDB files.


    sentinel
    no file extension
    It should have today's time stamp on it.
