ITunes won't connect to Store [Closed]

 lil nan -
I recently downloaded the new iTunes (9 i think) and ever since everytime i try and go to the Store it has a message that says "iTunes could not connect to the iTunes Store. The network connection timed out." I have searched everywhere and tried everything and nothing has worked. PLEASE HELP! :(

Go to "control panel"
click "internet options" (easier with the view in icons, large or small)
go to "connections" Tab
click "lan settings"
uncheck "use a proxy server".

Hope it solves it.
Thank you

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment
