When I try syncing my apps onto my phone I get the message:" The app(s)  were not installed on the iPhone because you are not authorized for it on this computer. To authorize this computer for items purchased from the iTunes storem, choose Store > Authorize this computer. "



So I went ahead and did what the message said and this is the message I get after I try to authorize: " this computer is already authorized. Including this one, you have authorized one computer of your available 5."



So its telling me to authorize my account on this computer but yet its already authorized! I'm really fustrated. I just updated my computer software and the iphone soft ware, so maybe this is a bug in the new software?


Can someone please help me, cause this is really fustrating!


I've restarted itunes, I've restarted my phone, and I have restarted my computer and I still get the same problem!

iPhone 4, iOS 5
