That explains it all. If you press and release "Ctrl+Alt+Del" key on your keyboard while in windows. This will bring up a window called "Task manager". Click on Processes and you'll see which process is taking allot of resources. Click on the performance tab and it will show you how good your processor and memory is doing.

Saying all that, the main problem I can see with your itunes is lack of memory. Upgrading it to 1GB or 512MB would make a difference.

I only run off of Apple laptops and the programs I use are Limewire and iTunes. Easy to use and never have had problems with them.

I have so many problems with itunes! I just bought a new ipod, installed the new itunes, was working fine. Then I started putting my CD's onto it, and the next time I went to open it it said that the file could not be found or created. I tried moving it to where it said it should be, I deleted it and reinstalled it, nothing. Kept coming up with that message. So now I can't put any more music on my new ipod :[

Are apple/mac laptops/computers much different to use than a normal PC? I have only ever used a normal one at home/school/work. Would it be a big adjustment?

My price range... Well I want to get something that will work well for what I want, so i'm pretty flexible. Probably up to about 2/2.5 grand.

You can get a good mac for that price. Yes they are different, but not too different that you can't tell they aren't a computer. They have a few differences, but even my mom (who is technologically challenged) figured out a mac and now loves it

Hmmm maybe I should look into a mac instead of a PC.

Mac and PC are totally different breeds however both can be run on single platform like in Mac book pro. So if you are looking for something which can run PC and Mac, then look for Mac book pro here:

Apple - MacBook Pro - Slim, powerful 15-inch and 17-inch Mac notebooks

Does anyone have any idea why my itunes isn't working? It says "This file cannot be found or created. Default location is my music folder" So I tried mobing it to my music, same thing. I tried deleting the fiels and re-installing, and no go, same thing. Its very frustrating!

Wow Macbook pros are expensive... Eep. I may have to look for one on ebay second hand, a new one is a bit out of my budget.
