'iTunes could not connect to the iTunes Store. The network connection was refused.'
After looking at many errors like this posted on this forum, mine still won't fix.
I do have XP, Norton had expired ages ago, and consequently uninstalled. I also have uninstalled my Spybot Search and Destroy. I have the latest version of Quicktime.
I have done everything that Apple said to do, donwloaded a patch and everything, and it still can't get the store.
I have reinstalled it, and allowed all registry keys to be changed by iTunes (Spybot asks if you would like them to be changed, but I have since uninstalled Spybot).

Any help would be greatly appreciated, because it has been like this for months now, and haven't bothered to try and fix it (until now)
