I have iTunes installed, and each time I try to connect to the iTunes store i recieve the message:

iTunes could not connect to the iTunes store. Make sure your connection is active and try again.

I have tried EVERYTHING suggested by iTunes support and Microsoft support. i tried to close my firewall

but i cant because of this controlled group policy. My antivirus is ESET NOD32 and

I am using Windows Vista Starter. Any help would be very appreciated.

THANKS...

Hi, have you tried running iTunes in compatibility mode ?
>> right click the iTunes application > properties > compatibility tab > Windows XP (Service Pack 2/3)

Why can't you turn the firewall off exactly, what does it say ? Is it Windows Firewall ?

Hi, you did not find this tab ? :

I suppose you are using Windows Firewall, if you cannot turn it off, you might be able to add an exception to the list.
If you cannot do that, you will need administrator rights .
