SO... when going back to your earlier note that "There is an iTunes Preferences file in her login that tells iTunes where the default Media Folder is located..."

My understanding now is that even though iTunes is only installed once on the PC, when each user logs into their account and opens iTunes via Shift+Run, and sets the preference for the Media Folder, iTunes will "know" the correct default location to use based on which user account is active...right?

I appreciate your help!
Not exactly. The iTunes Preferences change is needed if you use her login to manage your library. You are no longer doing that so you can ignore that portion.

If you have your own login, there is no need to alter the default Media Folder location change or the Shift-start. Just run iTunes and enjoy.

Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
