You run the program using Java tools if I remember correctly. But actually I found a much easier way to fix the problem (after I had several unrelated computer issues and had to replace my hard drive). So if it's a simple matter of the tags are coming up garbled when you see them in Windows Explorer and when you put them in Itunes, etc. then all you need to do is go into Control Panel >> Clock, Languages, and Region >> Region and Language >> Administrative >> Change System locale. And once you get there just change the system locale to Russia (or whatever country/language you are dealing with), restart the computer, and everything will come up perfectly. (What this does is set the default non-unicode code to be a Cyrillic based code instead of a latin based one, as far as I understand)

I had thought that I originally had tried this but obviously not, because it worked like a charm after I had to replace my hard drive. Anyways, I hope this helps! Vsevo Horoshevo!

Do you know how to get into Control Panel? It's in the start menu, in the right hand column. When you click on Control Panel it opens up a window. In that window you will see one of two things -- either it will show you 8 categories where you can go and change setting for your computer (such as, System & Security, Network & Internet, Programs, and Clock Languages & Region, etc... this is the 'new' way that they are displayed) or it will show about 50 little icons representing all the individual things that you can change (i.e. this is the 'old' way, the only difference is that they're not grouped in categories). If its the first setup then follow my instructions in my previous post, if its the second then simply find the icon that says "Region and Language" then click on the "Administrative" tab and then "Change System Locale."

Sometimes songs may seem to be coming up fine in Windows Explorer, because their file names are coming up correctly, but their tags are in some other code (usually win1251 or K0I8), which happens to be the information that Itunes reads.

Now that is all assuming that you are dealing with Cyrillic id3 tags or at least some other non latin alphabet. If you're dealing with English tags that aren't coming up in Itunes then that's a whole other problem I'd say. Are you dealing with Russian songs?

I was just a bit confused by the sequence you've mentioned. I found it in Control Panel/Region and Laguage then tab "Administrative" where I found the magic button "Change system Locale", chose Russia and all my problems when away... Thanks bro! What a stupid problem! Feel dumb at the moment! PAka!

Hey, no problem. Imagine how I felt after trying to figure out how to fix this problem for over a year, only to discover all I needed to do was change one little setting! Anyways, I'm glad I could help! Vsevo Horoshevo!
