I have a folder where all my songs are stored and that's the only songs I want in my iTunes library, but iTunes keeps adding to the library songs from other locations of my computer. How to stop that?

File/Import in iTunes will let you select individual file directories to load files into iTunes. If iTunes is trying to search you hard drive(s) for music, tell it you don't want to do this and manually File/Import from the directory that has all of your music.

Hope this helps?
