    I did a system restore (had a virus from downloading... stuff), then an AVAST scan in safe mode and removed the virus
    But iTunes won't open now, it's in task manager, but it freezes/hangs (the memory it's using stays the same and nothing happens)
    Any ideas how to fix it? :]

    Haha. Sorry...

    Uh I assume you have a library and playlists you are trying to save? If not just dump the iTunes folder from My Music. You could also just test if it the settings/library file thats the issue by moving that folder to the Desktop temporarily. Or just uninstall and reinstall iTunes if none of the above applies to you. Actually should probably just do that first but Id backup the Library folder first if you care about it.

    Oh nah if you re-install you still keep your library and playlists, and all my music is imported into the library using a third party program
