You might have to uninstall and reinstall from scratch. Copy or rename your iTunes library first.

BTW, renaming the library is just a precaution in case something goes weird on the reinstall. iTunes should be able to handle it without that step, but I'm paranoid, so I like to make a backup just in case.

Mine's in my My Music folder, but YMMV. Just run a search on your computer for "iTunes Library" and it'll turn up.
