I've never lost any music or videos by re-installing iTunes, but it is ALWAYS best to have a backup, esp of purchased music from iTMS that can only be downloaded once.
The actual program iTunes get installed here
And the music files are in an entirely different folder.
If "nothing" is on your iPod, restoring it can't possibly lose anything. A restore will just put the iPod operating software back on it.
P.S. Your sig says WIndows ME - that can't be right. iTunes is for WinXP or Win2K.

Short answer: Yes, you will loose everything.
I have had to reinstall iTunes, and it dumps everything. I tried to backup, save files, etc.; before but unfortunatly, iTunes will "reject" some digital files and I have found, across all the users I support, about 20% of your media will be lost regardless. Good luck.
if u uninstall and reinstall itunes u will not lose ur music. it's just the program ur removing. itunes makes a file that holds the music in the computer under my music so therefore the music is seperate from the itunes application itself when uninstalling. a restore for the ipod wipes everything off the ipod itself and makes it just like outta the box - it will not remove files from the computer
