Hi Shelly and welcome to Geeks to Go!

I see you've tried a few different solutions before. Can you please cite these sources for us? Otherwise we'll be going in circles.

Also, you have consulted Apple support on this issue? iTunes brings home some serious bread for that company so I'm sure they would be more than happy to help you as well. By not helping they would lose money :)

Lastly, can you please read off (or take a screenshot) of the exact error message you are receiving? It will help us give you a preoper diagnosis.

Thanks! :)

I have contacted apple-that didnt work The guy I was talking to didnt seem like he knew what he was talking about. The itunes store mentioned on the internet was clearing my DNS Cache -when I do that it tells me that it fails. I dont know if this helps but before I was able to get on the Itunes store from my computer but I had a bad virus and I had someone clean it for me so soon as I got my computer back I wasn't able to connected to the Itunes store.


When I run the connectivity test-for the Itunes store:It says Secure link to Itunes store Failed


The error that it gives is::
Itunes could not connect to the Itunes store. The network connection was refused.
Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, then try again.

I hope this helps

I see.

Do you have a firewall installed? If so you need to make sure that iTunes has full Internet privileges.

Have you tried reinstalling iTunes?

Good, we're making progress! :)

How do you know you're connecting to the store though? Does it say so?

What changes did you make to get this far since I posted (if any)?

I am already buying songs, etc on the store-
What I noticed was that I was adding itunes as an exception but on the Trend Micro the firewall was on so I enabled it, then I connected.

The only time I get the connection timed out is when I try to download the update for iphone/itunes-

But you couldn't do that before, right? Or could you?

I'm just trying to narrow down what's going on :)

So you can access the store and only receive that message when searching for updates to iPhone/iTunes, right?

Is the firewall on or off right now?
