I am also looking for a solution to this. Even if I go to settings and turn off automatic downloads it keeps asking for the password.
The only temporary solution I have found is to go to store in iTunes and log out. That way it will stop asking for the password untill you log in to the store again.
I don;t know if Apple has a system for bug reporting, if it does I have not found it.

Does anyone know how to fix this annoying bug ?

If someone knows how to report iTunes bugs to Apple please let me know.
Also is anyone else experiencing this bug? My sistem is running Windows 7 x64 with all latest updates.

I too am having this problem. It only pops up twice when I open iTunes, but it is still very annoying. I have iTunes 10 btw. I'm running Mac OS 10.6.8 but I doubt that this is the problem.

The previous version (10.5.0) had a checkbox to remember the password in the pop-up but it is missing in 10.5.1.42.

same issue in this thread:
affects me to. Oddly, eventually a box comes up asking to remember password

I still have not got the box.
Is there a way to merge threads?

This is really a fundamental part of ITunes and seeing that there are a few threads on the same subject i cant see how Apple have not fixed it ? Is there a procedure to follow to get the item fixed ?

Someone said they reported the bug on Nov 17 Sometimes I get "cannot connect to apple store", even though i have dissabled store in parental preferences .. as a change from the password request twice ... I never enter anything. I don't know if it matters if you do or not.
I just logged into the iTunes store having just reset my password which I had forgotten .. I have now found the wretched messages have stopped .. touch wood. It took me hours to work out how to post here. Now I'm going to sleep. I felt I had to write something before I do. I hope it makes sense

Probably the worst bug I've ever seen from apple - so unlike them to overlook a foul user experience like this. REALLY tired of having it ask me twice for password. And oh yeah -the preferences that allow you to uncheck the box for auto downloads? Worthless, cause no matter what you choose, once you fire up itunes again you will be asked, again.
APPLE - how about a bit of logic on this one??
I've submitted a report via their feedback link: itunes/feedback I encourage ALL of your to do the same. Only way we will get some action on this.

As I said in my last post, I logged into my itunes account in the normal way .. not from the two prompts which annoyed the **** out of me. I then logged out of the store again, and disabled the iTunes store the only way I know how, in parental preferences. The two prompts no longer appear.
I do however get a message that i can not connect to the itunes store if I start iTunes with no internet connection.
This I can live with since it does not seem to affect things like downloading podcasts and/or updating my iPod, which as I recall, was not possible while the password prompts were showing.
It is a bug which Apple seem to have ignored ..yes I have reported it, but this work around keeps me happy.
If you don't have an itunes account and have no wish to, I'm not sure how this helps, but if you are posting here then the log in is the same for the itunes store .. not the most secure system perhaps, but that is another topic.

How do you report iTunes bugs to Apple?

+1 - I've been having to hard reboot my macbook pro to get it to stop. Really f$%king annoying. iTunes prevents me from shutting down when it starts doing this.
