Fairly good with computer's but I'm out of idea's. Recently iTunes has decided it doesn't want to let me connect to the store. I only use Windows Firewall and AVGFree Anti Virus, iTunes is allowed through my firewall. I've turned the firewall off completely with no success. I've uninstalled and reinstalled itunes about 8 times. Still nothing.

Somehow I turned proxies on while fiddling with something and must have forgotten, reading through my own report gave me the idea.

Turned proxy server off and it works fine.

I might be a little late here, but thought I would throw this up to see if it helps anyway. I'm assuming you are using Internet Explorer as your browser. Open IE and go to Tools -> Internet Options. In the dialog box, you want to choose the Connections tab and then press the Advanced Button. You will see a check mark in the box that says "Use a proxy server for your LAN....". You'll want to uncheck that box. Then press "Ok" two times to close the dialog boxes.
