curently running itunes 10.6.1.7 on desktop. But in all previous versions I had the same problem, in about half of my library of music at the beginning of songs it stutters and skips, is as best I can explain what it is. but when I play the same songs in another player such as winamp I don't get this problem, I just tried to record the situation ( problem) and upload it to youtube and post the link here, but it's not doing it at the moment. weird.. well when it does i'm going to record it and post a link to it on youtube so that'll be the best way for readers of this thread to hear what I mean, but maybe Apple already knows theirs an issue with that.

Are all your songs etc. still in the usual folder(s) on your computer? Try holding down the Shift key in Windows when opening iTunes. In the resulting dialogue you will get the option to create a new library or navigate to an existing one. The default location for your iTunes library is in C:\Documents and Settings\Username\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\ (or C:\Username\Music\iTunes\ in Vista). Look in there and see if you have more than one library file (they have the extension .itl) If you have more than one try opening them in turn, you may find your original library is still intact: How to open an alternate iTunes Library file
