Windows 7: iTunes takes forever to load and then does not respond

iTunes takes forever to load and then does not respond

Hi guys,

I've just gotten this issue where iTunes takes forever to load and then does not respond. It seems to have happened after installing the latest update to version I've tried all the normal ideas like reinstalling, trying to go back to previous versions, cleaned up the registry and pretty much any fix that I found through googling the issue. Nothing has managed to get iTunes going again and was wondering whether anyone had any possible ideas for a fix. I'm aware of the other programs out there that are available out there but I am kind of stuck with iTunes as I have about 15 years worth of music and playlists on there. I am more than happy to provide any extra detail that's required to help out further.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Perhaps your AV or firewall is interfering?

I've also checked the AV and firewall, no luck there!

I gave up trying to fix it and just reinstalled windows, now it works again.

Cheers for trying to help :)
