Currently Being ModeratedDec 13, 2010 1:41 PM (in response to cyril14)I have been experiencing exactly the same thing when trying to authorize my computer for last couple of weeks or so and have not been able to solve it yet. Pretty annoying, cannot play my purchases since then. Apple Support has not been helpful so far. Have tried all the things like deleting SC files and so forth.

Okay. Let's try creating a new user account with full administrative rights. Log out of your usual account and log into the new account. (Don't use fast user switching to move between account.)
Launch iTunes. (No need to add files, just let it open to an empty library.) Try the authorisation again. Does it go through without the error this time?
(If so, just quit iTunes and log back into your usual user account to get to you normal library.)Lenovo t61 laptop, Windows XP Pro, various ipod models

Apple email support has not been able to help me if I do not count the recommendation to go through these discussions.:) It has been driving me crazy.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 16, 2010 2:56 PM (in response to b noir)Thanks a lot.
After trying with the new user I have deleted all apple&itunes entries from registers/CurrentUser and all apple&itunes stuff from my home directory (application data etc), and it works too!
Lets hope it will survive longer than the first installation.
Currently Being ModeratedDec 17, 2010 4:22 AM (in response to b noir)Bad news, the problem is back again.
After one reboot, my ordinary as well as the 'testing' empty account (on my computer, not itunes) exhibit the same error.
Reinstalling of itunes helped for a while, but all my purchases went away.
Now, the "test" computer account works (is authorized), the ordinary does not. However, I don't expect it will last too long.
The whole concept, when the iphone is tied just to one crappy application is wrong.
Currently Being ModeratedDec 17, 2010 6:07 AM (in response to cyril14)Yeah. Same here. After switching off and on my computer, the same error occurs even on the new, empty, "test" windows account. So every time I want to sync my iPod I have to create new "test", empty windows account. Pretty inconvenient. Guess we got to wait for some iTunes update where it will be hopefully fixed....?Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi 1536, Windows XP, Service Pack 3
Currently Being ModeratedJan 8, 2011 3:16 AM (in response to Prema77)Ahoj, četli jsme vaše diskuze ohledně chyby 42032,ale ani po všech postupech co jste psali mi to stále nefunguje, nelze zautorizovat PC a stahovat už vůbec.
Psal jsem na support Apple,ale odkázali mě právě na vaše diskuze, takže podpora absolutně k prdu.
Prosím, nevíte co by se dalo ještě dělat,abych to zprovoznil?Už to zkouším cca 3týdny a nevim si vůbec rady.
Prosím o případnou odpověď i na email@example.comAsus, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedJan 26, 2011 4:32 AM (in response to janecekr)I have this error since Monday Jan 24th. It was all OK till Friday before.
FYI I have update my iTunes to last version 10.1.1.4 about 2 weeks ago and I have iPhone with iOS4.2.1 since it was releasted.
So, something has to changed last weekend on iTunes Store, because everything was OK for me before.
Anyway here is a trick which works for me:
1) Close iTunes
2) Open cmd line and write there: ipconfig /flushdns and press enter
3) Open iTunes and ... it works
I can purchase new apps and also I can download new apps updates.
I did not try Sync yet, so I will see...HomeMade, Windows XP
