    This past month, iTunes has become a real turd for me. More BeachBall of Death action than I've ever seen. I thought it might be due to an install of iLike, but after deleting that app...iTunes still hangs on the simplest of requests.

    Double click a different tune? HANG/BeachBall of Death

    Scroll my playlist? HANG/BeachBall of Death

    I'm a salty ol' Mac user and try not to cry too quickly, but this one's got me stumped. Think I should delete iTunes and start from scratch?

    It might help to rebuild your iTunes library file.

    It might be something like a permissions flaw (and I don't believe repairing permissions touches your iTunes library).

    Are you running Genius? I turned mine off and noticed a HUGE difference.
