I am also using iTunes 8 on my windows XP and it is working fine. Make sure you have the recommended minimum system requirements to run it properly:-
  • Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later or 32-bit editions
  • 1.0GHz Intel or AMD Processor
  • broadband Internet to use the iTunes Store
  • a DirectX 9.0-compatible video card with 32MB of video RAM
  • Quicktime 7.5.5
  • Quicktime-compatible audio card
  • 200MB free disk space

Re: iTunes freezes on Windows XP

When troubleshooting a variety of issues, it can be useful to determine if the issue affects a specific Windows user account or all accounts. Follow the steps below to create a new user account in Windows XP:-
  • From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.

  • Open User Accounts.

  • Select Create a new account and follow the instructions to complete the account setup process.

  • Once the new account is created, choose Log Off from the Start menu.

  • Log into the newly created user account.

  • Open iTunes and determine whether the issue you were experiencing persists in this new user.

Re: iTunes freezes on Windows XP

The first thing to do when troubleshooting an installation issue on a Windows computer is make sure you have the latest Microsoft Windows updates installed. Also try removing the iTunes Plug-ins. Third-party iTunes plug-ins can cause many issues, particularly if the plug-in has not been updated to be compatible with new versions of iTunes. iTunes plug-ins are stored in the following location:
