    itunes Store problems.

    Got a question for you tech guys on here regarding the itunes store...

    The past week or so I haven't been able to get on to the itunes store because it won't load. Whenever i try and open the itunes store it loads for about 30 seconds and then tells me itunes store could not be opened check your internet connection. I'm using the computer that has my itunes on it to make this thread so my internet connection is obviously fine. I do have Webroot Internet Security on my computer but I have had it for three months now and this is the first time I've had problems with the itunes store.

    Could I have possibly contracted a virus of some sort? As far as I have noticed my itunes has been working normally but maybe I'm just not seeing something.

    Anyways does anyone know what could be wrong with it or what I should do to get my itunes store up and running again?
    Any help or advise is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Also if you need any more additional information to help figure out the problem just let me know. Thanks again.

    Curious whether there was an update to itunes in between the store working and not working, probably not a virus as there seem to be a lot of problems with iTunes and windows.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    I would agree with this. I know there has been at least one update recently and I'd just about guarantee downloading and installing would fix the problem.

    My next question is, why do you buy stuff from the iTunes store? There are cheaper sites to buy music, you can import into iTunes easily and it is DRM FREE.

    Thanks guys. I use the itunes store to look at the top 100 and to find album names for other songs I download.

    Here's a problem, it's $1.29 a song. Download uTorrent and start using that.

    Not all the songs are $1.29. Many are still .99. These are the songs I usually buy after humming them in the shower. Also, if you buy an entire album, instead of the one catchy song you think is good until next week, you pay less. Maybe find some gems that you like.


    And I also pity the fool who thinks $1.29 is too much money for something worth $1.29.
