I'm use a PC with windows 7
Close your iTunes.
Start --> Programs --> Accessories (Right Click on Command Prompt) --> Run as Administrator
then type in:
netsh winsock reset
Press Enter. Click “cancel” do not restart yet. Open Itunes and see if it works.
If it works, do what you want to do and restart later.

I had to leave for a minute. Ok, I tried the first one and it seemed to work, I closed iTunes and left. I came back I had the same problem. I tried the next one and I still have the same problem. Should I reinstall iTunes?
Should I save any files before I reinstall?
it wanted to know if I wanted to uninstall or install/fix. I said install/fix. That did not work. Should I uninstall? and if I do, what happens to the .I something file Jason told me about. The reason I don't have the information for my songs?
Use the Control Panel to uninstall iTunes and related software components in the following order and then restart your computer:
Important: Uninstalling these components in a different order, or only uninstalling some of these components may have unintended affects.
In most cases removing iTunes and its related components from the Control Panel will remove all supporting files belonging to those programs. In some rare cases those though, files may be left behind. After following the previous steps, you should confirm that the following files and folders have been removed. If any are left behind, remove them now:
If you have a 64-bit version of Windows, you will need to confirm that the following folders have been removed as well:
After this reboot your phone and install iTunes again. Test iTunes to see if it will work or not.
uninstalling, reboot, re-install did not work, same problem, i'm going to use the control panel now
didn't work. I try to search and iTunes freezes
I opened iTunes, went to the store clicked a few thing including my wish list everything seems to work ok. I went back to my music and started a few songs, they seem to work. I tried to do a search, I put in "ar" the songs title is "are you there", I put in the ar and it freezes. Jason got on my box earlier today, got my music back, I tested a few songs and was ok with what he did, closed iTunes, when I reopened iTunes, did a search and it worked, then tried to search "ar" and it started freezing
I think he did both but I'm not sure because he was working so fast.
I searched on john, you and the, it seemed to work fine, I put in "ar" and it froze and itunes stopped working
Ok, but this will have to be done tomorrow, I tired and i'm going to bed
Ok, I ran the disk check. I opened iTunes and did a search using the letters "ar" and iTunes still freezes
I don't know. The reason we noticed this is because after Jason did what he did, I was looking for a song titled "are you there" When I put in the 'r' iTunes freezes so my question is, are you saying that any song the has a title with the letters 'ar' in it I can't search for?
What I'm doing now is using the shift+right key to go down each song to see if if stops or gives me an error on any. I have 12,000+ songs. Is this the best way to do this???
what is that?? at songs
