Close your iTunes,
Go to command Prompt -
(Win 7/Vista) - START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES, right mouse click "Command Prompt", choose "Run as Administrator".
(Win XP SP2 & above) - START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES/Command Prompt
In the "Command Prompt" screen, type in
netsh winsock reset
Hit "ENTER" key
Restart your computer.
If you do get a prompt after restart windows to remap LSP, just click NO.
Now launch your iTunes and see if it is working now.
If you are still having these type of problems after trying the winsock reset, refer to this article to identify which software in your system is inserting LSP:

That totally worked.
Windows 7 is less clogged now.
Anyways, I tryed the link on the LSP you posted and ran the autoruns but could not figure out if anything was wrong.
After opening autoruns, I found only 02 Bonjour Namespace Providers, by Apple and 04 Microsoft Windows Live ID Namespace providers.
Have no idea if there any conflict between them or if there`s any software inserting LSP.
How do I figure that out?

I tried to reset the Winsock providers by running 'netsh winsock reset' and rebooting the machine. Autoruns only shows one entry under Winsock providers, that is for Bonjour. I tried to repair both Quicktime and iTunes by going to the Programs under Control Panel on my Win Vista SP2 machine with iTunes 10.6.1 and latest Quicktime version. None of these solutions work for me. iTunes store access was working fine till yesterday evening and I have not installed any new software or made any hardware or software changes to my network, no firewall changes etc. I am at a loss to understand what is wrong now. Any suggestions are welcome.
