Just like I said I would post it in the blog, here is the location that you can find the iTunesPrefs.XML to edit for both Windows Vista and XP.

Windows Vista:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes

Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes or
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes

If you can't see the file, make sure that your hidden files are set to be visible in Windows Explorer.

There ya go!
