I think you're in the wrong forum lol this is iTunes for Mac lol
Have you tried this article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1866
open your itunes folder usually in C:\user\[your user name]\music\itunes select all items and select share with homegroup read/write
you must do this for all the files in iTunes folder as well as the iTunes folder itself

I looked at every search result Google listed for this problem. Nothing worked. So, I downloaded this Zip file from the following forum and it worked in a few clicks of the mouse. Don't waste your time with this and other forums. At least not for Windows 7.

I went to 'My Music' clicked on properties and unticked the read only box and wallah!

I tried everything and still no luck. Finally I found that I was having sync issues in my sync center.
Disabled sync center and iTunes started without a hitch. Thought I would give my steps for the next poor soul.
Control Panel->Sync Center->Manage offline files->Disable Offline File

the problem is you denied yourself user privilages. if you click the itunes shortcut and click run as admin it will open to make this perm you have to change its properties (the short cut) to always run as admin. in the properties menue. this fixed my problem .

You are a GENIUS, have been fighting with this problem for a week, all the other fixes + system restores did not work. If I ever meet you IRL, drinks are on me. THANK YOU !!!

Hi there: I also have Windows 7. Anyways try this:
Right click on the ITunes shortcut desktop icon.
**This will now open your tab for Itunes on the Shortcut tab. (look at the top, you'll see tabs like "Security, Details, Previous Versions" etc)
At the bottom of this page you will see 3 buttons: "Open File Location", "Choose Icon" and "Advanced".
Click on "Advanced"
Check the box that says "Run As Administrator".
I hope this works. It worked for me a couple minutes ago.
