    iTunes crashes when adding folder to library


    iTunes has been working fine on my widows eight OS. Till I added videos to my library, initially it worked fine. I then attempted to add additional videos from different folder. iTunes crashed and is crashing every time I attempt it. I checked and changed all user account and rights to the second folder, I changed all settings including ownership to the second folder to make it identical to the first. Still crashes. I moved second folder and made it a sub folder to the first and still crashes. I have chosen to completely delete all traces of iTunes and apple folders from my pc.
    I will reinstall iTunes and see if it works. Will advise. But I really have no high expectations that it will solve my issue. HELP????

I restarted itunes and started adding music to my library.... that is currently working as I enter this info.... so for some reason it is just crashing when i try to add videos to library.....

    Dodgy video(s). It happens when people that don't know what they're doing upload videos they've made as torrents or other p2p files.
