    iTunes for Windows Question, if anyone knows:

    I want to create a new user account in Windows XP - I use administrator and while I'm a great computer user and dont have viruses, today I ran into a new virus unable to be cleaned without tons of work being done on my part.

    I created a new account and got everything working but now all my music is not in iTunes - it was on my old account which can not be accessed unless I'm logged in.

    Basically, I have over 4300 songs and I want them in iTunes in a different account. How do I do this?

    Set your music directory to the same as the old accounts music directory. Also, make sure the "copy files to iTunes music folders" checkbox is unchecked.

    You do this in Edit menu > Preferences > Advanced Tab

    But the old location was C:\Documents and Settings\[name]\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music AND F:\iTunes Music

    I can access F but not ~\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music with the new account
