What should I do when I get the following message:  "The iTunes library file can not be saved.  You do not have enojgh access privileges for this operation".

    Right-click on your main iTunes folder and click Properties, then go to the Security tab and click Advanced. If necessary grant your account and SYSTEM full control of this folder, subfolders and files, then tick the option to replace permissions on child objects which will repair permissions throughout the library. This is the XP dialog but Windows 7 shouldn't be too different.


    If it won't let you change the permissions use the Owner tab to take ownership from an account with administrator privileges.
