Wow, I haven't seen this one in a while, as all my links indicate:

Thanks for your (Limno's) comments and the links submitted though. I WAS able to read them and make a copy (screenshot) for my future use.
Before getting your response I came across another online (non-Apple) website fix that in the end did repair my wayward program. It was generated by someone who apparently is a Mac developer or power user, who is familiar with the issue.
Here is the linked site, with the suggestion that worked for me, using the terminal.app with instructions provided:

I have recntly started experiencing this issue - say in the last week or so. Very annoying. I ran the terminal commands and saw way too many files to start deleting. And the code signing doesn't seem like something I want to pursue. One of the other suggestions I saw was to simply delete the iTunes App and then reinstall it. Does this work?

Most of the recommending fixes involve deleting iTunes and reinstalling from a fresh download. However, Mountain Lion won’t let you delete iTunes… say’s “can’t be modified or deleted because it’s required by Mac OS X.”
Some folk have had success by simply running the installer anyway. But in my case, the extra files weren’t removed.
Instead I found I could right click on the/Applications/iTunes.app package, and “Show Package Contents“. Once inside the package, I could delete the contents. I simply deleted the entire “contents” directory, and then installed iTunes using a new download from the website. The terminal command “codesign” then generated the correct results and the Firewall prompts stopped repeating.

Thank you - this I believe is the best answer. I was aware that this issue was due to some 'corruption' of the codesign and that reinstalling iTunes should fix it. As you mention, in Mountain Lion, however, it didn't let me delete iTunes, and running the installer didn't help.
I concur that using Show Package Contents, deleting the 'Contents' folder, then running the installer has resolved the problem for me. I believe this is an easier, and better fix than the one posted above.

It worked for me too!...and it was ridiculously easy compared to the other solutions I've seen.
Many thanks Marcelo.

The solution presented by Marcelo solved the problem on my MBP as well. Simple and quick. Thanks, Marcelo.

I was already playing around with the contents folder, but I wasn't sure if I wanted to try clearing the whole thing until I read your comment. Thanks a lot!

This solution works for me. Just deleted the /Contents folder and reinstall the iTunes app from Apple site.
