I have tried logging in as an administrator and used the cmd prompt.
though i have not connected to itunes while i was logged in at the time.
Should i just go into safe mode and then open itunes and see if i can connect?

Thank you :)

I would try logging in as the Administrator and then connecting to the iTunes store. I'm not sure of the iTunes Helper Services involvement with store connections, so you might not even be able to open the program in safe mode. If you do try in safe mode, you'll have to choose safe mode with networking.

Are you using a 3rd party firewall, or the one built into Windows?

I have COMODO security and firewall.
I think we fixed one problem because now it just keeps saying to try back later.
my diagnostic now shows these results.

I've never used Comodo so I can't give you specifics, but I would try disabling Comodo and attempt another connection.

If you've disabled the firewall and antivirus, there really isn't any need to remove the program, since it seems as thought that's not the problem.

Do you have another PC you can attach to the same network and try the connection?

Can you navigate to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC and locate the file named Hosts? Double click the file, and choose notepad as the program to use to open the file if prompted.

Then go to Edit -> Select All, then Edit -> Copy and please paste the copied text into a reply.

Do you have a modem or a router? or both?

I know you said 1 computer connects and yours does not, but...

Unplug the router power (if you have a router)
Unplug the modem power.
Now plug the modem back in and let it do its checks.
If you have a router you now plug that back in and let it do its self checks.

When the self checks are done try connecting to Itunes.

Yes, that is correct. Did you happen to switch ISP's when this started?
