I don't know how you tried uninstalling your iTunes, but if you go into your Control Panel, and Add/Remove Programs, iTunes should be in there and you can choose to uninstall it. Uninstall all components, reinstall it and do an update first thing.
To put songs on the iPod depends on where you're getting the songs from. First you hold Ctrl and O at the same time. Some of your songs will be in your My Music folder under My Documents. If you are getting music from a CD in the CD drive, open my computer and the drive that the CD is in and the songs should be in there. If you are downloading music, the downloaded songs are usually in a folder in the program. For example, let's say you use Limewire. You would go to My Computer, Local Disc (C:), Program Files, then scroll down to your Limewire folder, I'm not sure what folder your music will be in after you double click Limewire, but they should be in one of those folders. If not, they'll be in your My Music folder. You simply double click whatever song you want to add.
Also, I believe, if you download music, you can open both your downloading program under the tab where your downloaded music is and open your iTunes to the Library. Then you click and hold the song that you want in your iTunes and drag it into your Library of the iTunes.
Hope I helped a bit, and if you need anything else I'd be happy to help to the best of my ability!
