Windows 7: iTunes .itl file is locked

Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit
iTunes .itl file is locked

How do I change the attributes of the iTunes library folder
And get rid of the read only attributes as right now I can't access my iTunes for windows music library as it says the .itl file is locked on disk or you do not have permission to access this file.
Apparently it has something to do with the attributes that are set for the folder to read only only I can't even open iTunes at all because of it. Please help me here as it's driving me nuts! This is for windows 7 ultimate thanks matt

A quick solution would be to download the latest version of itunes and install it.

Or do a repair on itunes.
