This worked, thank you for the post. Note that for me connecting to Xbox 360 with media center broke this.

1.) Open Windows Media Center
2.) Click on Tasks and then Settings
3.) Click on Start Menu and Extras
4.) Click on Extras Library Options
5.) Make sure that the option "Control the media experience in Windows Media Center" is UNCHECKED
6.) Click Save and try opening iTunes it worked for me
Thanks for this advice. I too have been struggling with the iTunes locked disc problem off and on for a few months. Permissions were set as suggested & I've used Takeownership zip file as described above; but still had same problem.
Just configured Windows Media Centre as you've described & hey presto! iTunes has just opened for me. Hooray!
I have also previously found that deleting the iTunes Library Genius file within iTunes folder has worked too.

Just hope the things I've done will last for more than a few weeks this time!

Thanks for advice to all on this great forum.
