My computer seems to get a crippling virus when I copy my music library to my HDD and import it to iTunes, but virus scans pick up nothing.

(I use a Lenovo y460 laptop on Windows 7 64-bit.)

Currently my computer is not infected because I reinstalled the OS from backup discs, but I'd like to figure out what is wrong with the files or which ones are infected instead of losing my whole library.

When I just copy the files (mostly .mp3s with some .mp4s and .flacs) from my iPod classic or external HDD to my computer, my computer runs fine. But when I import them into iTunes or another media player my computer starts to occasionally lock up and become unresponsive. This becomes worse over time until the computer can't be used in anything but safe mode and I have to restore from my backup discs.

I've run Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes, and boot-time Avast scans on my computer and these files and none of them pick up anything.

Does anyone know what the problem is and if I can resolve it without losing all my files?
