So I downloaded the latest version of iTunes and immediately regretted it. I then went about reinstalling 10.7 by downloading it from Apple's website and then deleted 11. I replaced the new itunes library with the latest 'previous' version from the itunes folder.

So 10.7 is up and running again but now I get 2 error messages every time I open it.
One says 'An unknown error occured (-402408)' then one appears immediately after saying 'We could not complete your itunes store request. An unknown error occured (-402408). There was an error in the iTunes store. Please try again later'

After I click these away iTunes opperates normally.


I'm sure these error messages are related to my cut and paste way of downgrading itunes but how do i stop the errors from occuring? Is there another file i need to delete/modify/replace?


I really dont want to have to upgrade to 11, I can't stand the new layout that they for some reason are forcing you to have.


Any help would be hugely appreciated,




Running OSX 10.6.8 on a macbook pro.
