itunes hates everything

After reading multiple forums on the subject of why iTunes is randomly dying and sound has become questionable on occasion, I did a full reinstall yesterday and accidentally deleted 22 G of music, but okay, besides that.

If anyone else run into this and the forums don't help, so far--tentatively--saving only the library xml somewhere else and deleting everything iTunes/Apple off the computer, including the folders in appdata/local and appdata/roam. And that also means uninstalling Apple Updates, Apple Mobile and Bonjour and deleting or removing all your iTunes/apple folders. I'm thinking now the preferences were corrupt in some way, but at this point, I'm just grateful everything's working.
