iTunes freezes my computer every time I open it

Every time I open iTunes (the new version.... i wish it hadn't been installed!) it starts 'determining Gapless Playback List' and before it gets anywhere it freezes. I have to restart my computer. It's rendered my iTunes useless.
Suggestions, please!

  • I don't recommend deleting or digging into anything you don't understand, might cause more problems. Book a reservation and take it to the Genius Bar at your local Apple Store if you can. They have experts there that will take care of problems like these for free. If that's not possible let me know.

    I had this same issue and here is what worked for me. I let iTunes run up until a point in which it was freezing and then used Task Manager to end the program, before it froze up my computer. Take note of which track it freezes on. I then restarted iTunes and let it run until it got close to the file upon which it froze previously at which point I hit the (x) in the window and stopped the process. I then quit iTunes and then restarted my computer. After this I started iTunes and then it ran through the gapless playback without any freezing. Not sure if it will work for you, but it did for me. Good luck.
