    There really is no process to uninstall/reinstall iTunes.

    I guess you can try to trash the app, search and delete anything in ~/Library and ~/Music and then use Pacifist to pull out the App from OS X installer.

    I recommend a full backup in case it doesn't work.

    You can delete the app (via the Terminal), then download and install a fresh copy :

    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

    Warning : you can delete iTunes preferences files in ~/Library, but do NOT delete the iTunes folder in ~/Music : it holds your iTunes Library !
