Locate your iTunes Music Folder. It is stored by default:

Windows XP and Windows 2000: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\iTunes

Windows Vista: \Users\username\Music\iTunes

Note: By default the Windows version of iTunes does not copy all of the music you add to your library to your iTunes Music folder. You can get iTunes to copy all of the Music in your library to your iTunes Music Folder (if you have enough hard drive space) by choosing Consolidate Library from the Advanced menu.
The publicly accessible music folder is:

Windows XP and Windows 2000: \Documents and Settings\AllUsers.WINDOWS\Documents\Shared Music

Windows Vista: \Users\Public\Public Music
