Still same issue. Been two months since I posted MY issue. Thanks everybody for TRYING to help. Apple, where are you?

I agree all these fixes are just bandaids, we did not make this issue happen an update did. The ultimate band-aid fix would be to revert to a working version before the update causing this issue.. I know going back is out of the question because of all the new features and iOS 5 compatibility. Apple we are waiting, please fix...

Visited that site several times, Apple did give me feedback in other past issues...

Wow, after months of frustration, the "Run as Administrator" solution posted by bono.hu did the trick for my Windows 7 computer. Thanks! Sorry for you Mac guys out there who are apparently still looking for a solution.

My Mac has been free of this unwelcome prompt for several weeks now. Here is what I did: I launched iTunes and signed in to the iTunes store using my Apple ID and password. I went into "Account" and clicked the "Reset all Warnings for Buying and Downloading" buttom at bottom. I clicked DONE. Then I clicked my Apple ID which is displayed at upper right, and then clicked SIGN OUT in the window that appears. That's it. I can now reset Safari all I want and the prompt does not return -- or not yet anyway! Good luck -- it worked for me.

I have had the exact same issue on my mac for weeks, it's been driving me nuts.
I'll give Mrteee3's suggestion a try as none of the other workarounds have resolved this.

for some reason, when we use itunes, a cookie is created in Safari. If we delete this cookie from Safari, something gets reset in Itunes and the prompts appears.
SOLUTION: Dont delete the apple.com cookie created by Itunes in Safari

Absolute Fix for me on the Mac. I am running Lion 10.7.3 iMac and I am in the habbit of resetting Safari now and then. The Cookie info is what finally did the trick thanks soooooooooooo much!!!

I was annoyed with this issue for months, tried various fixes posted in the discussion boards and none worked, UNTIL I tried Mrtreee3's fix. No more automatic download prompt when starting iTunes!
Running Windows 7 and iTunes 10.5.3. Logged into iTunes Store, clicked my email address in the upper-right corner and signed in to View Account. Scrolled to the bottom and clicked the Reset button next to "Reset all warnings for buying and downloading".

I get this same or a related problem regularly as well. I'm at the point where if I get this error (or another incorrect error) in iTunes I'm just going to dump iTunes/iPod/iPad completely and re-purchase everything from Amazon. Last night I had a "You aren't authorized to listen to this album on this computer... Please log in to authorize", I log in again, and it says "This computer is already authorized". This happens a few times a week. Getting realy tired of this crap in iTunes with music I've already paid for. I haven't had a single problem with the Amazon environment/player/downloading whatsoever. Apple (and it's fan-boiz) need a wake-up call...

Thanks to all for the suggestions. I can confirm that the issue is with deleting cookies. I am on OSX Lion, using Firefox. In the past few weeks I started using the Mac version of CCleaner (awesome app), and deleting all of my browser cookies automatically was causing the password prompt issue in iTunes.
I added itunes.apple.com and apple.com as "cookies to keep" in CCleaner, and presto, problem solved.
