Itunes is not playing my Songs

Windows 7 64bit computer

Latest and Greatest update....

All of a sudden the ITunes has some how lost all connection to the files.

I tried running Repair in Programs and features...No fix

I uninstalled --> rebooted then reinstalled  No Fix

I went to file Import folder and pointed to the iTunes folder....No Fix....

The files are there....I really do not wish to re-associate over 1000 songs....

How can I fix????

Try a complete uninstall of iTunes:

To uninstall iTunes (V11, Windows 7/8)

Control Panel > Programs and Features:

Uninstall the following in order as shown:

iTunes
Quick Time
Apple Software Update
Apple Mobile Device Support
Bonjour
Apple Application Support

Restart the computer.  (A)

Remove the folder:  Check first if this is where your songs are. I don't think so, but check.

C:\Users\jdhurst\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes

Now install the latest version of iTunes

These steps can help make iTunes work, but you may have to re-associate your songs. I am not certain about that.

You can always try a reinstall of iTunes at point A above and see if that works.

Also, iTunes 11.3.1 is just out today, so during the uninstall/reinstall, make sure you get the newest version.

I agree your iTunes library is corrupted with either duplicates or wrong named audio files, things like a capital letter to some tracks, some tracks duplicated in different playlists.
IMHO the easiest method to fix this is to rename it old reboot and let iTunes rebuild your library.
Playlists and libraries are two different areas.
This article explains how to re-create your iTunes library and playlists.
