I found this on another site and it fixed my problem:

Opened iTunes. Clicked on Preferences and under Parental Controls disabled access to the iTunes Store. I then checked the box to allow access to iTunes U.
When I tried loading the store this time, it sent me directly to iTunes U with no problem.
I then went back into Preferences and enabled access to everything and tries reloading the store.

Voila. I can now connect to the whole store with no problems. Strange
Your fix worked. Thanks for your post.

This was driving me crazy for 4 days. Your post worked like a charm...thanks!
Great job, thanks
Your fix worked for me...why does MS and Apple make things so difficult.
you are the bomb!! I have tried everything and this just turned up on a google search! thanks thank thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had a similar problem. I found that because I had started to use a proxy server for IE but not for Mozilla I could connect to the internet with Firefox but not with the iTunes store. The solution was to uncheck the use of the proxy server in IE. Then iTunes can connect.
Thanks so much - I tried this and it worked :D
Woooohoooo thank so much stratoj... Finally got it back hehe
Thank you so much
how do I do so with norton security??
Hey, I think I might know the answer to your problem. Mine wasn't working either. I didn't realize though that my virus protection (Blink Personal) was blocking access, therefore if you have a virus protector click on it, scroll until you find itunes-will be in programs, and click/unclick the block sign-may be in a different form though, so fiddle around with it.
Hope it helps!
Check your LAN settings. I have Firefox and Internet Explorer. I use Mozilla but Internet Explorer was set as my default, remove that setting and it will start to work.
This worked for me! Thanks!!!
thanks, unchecked proxy in IE and started working. Thanks u so much!
This did it for me.
how do you go into LAN settings??

I had the same problem when I updated to the newest itunes. Took me a while, but I found out it was a proxy server issue. Check out this link for the solution that worked for me!
Thanks for asking this question, and "irishpajamas" thanks for the link. It worked like a charm :)
Right ok.....the reason your import issue isnt workin is becasuse who may have inserted smthing else b4 and then you clicked the ticked box at the bottom. But for now. go on settings and try to find smthing wich allows you to untick boxes you dont want....however about the internet thing....i am supposing that the compani that gives you internet has blocked u alllowing on that program either of high usage.....have a look!!!

anything else!!

(i know I wasnt a good help)
English please.

that usually happens when your internet isnt plugged in... both the downloading of the music and the itunes store thing - if your internet is working though.. I dunno whats wrong ... sorry :/
