It sounds like you've hit the limit of 10 computers+devices that can be "associated" (different from "authorized") to your AppleID.
In iTunes, go to Store->View My AppleID->Manage Devices. If there are 10, try removing some of the ones you no longer use or have.

Have you shared your AppleID with anyone - family member or spouse? Any given AppleID can only be associated with 10 devices at a time (five of which can be computers). Once you reach that limit, the 90 day timeout applies before that AppleID can be associated with another, new, device.
You can see the explanation here - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4627
All you can do is wait the 90 days, sorry but I know of no way around that. If you think the message indicates an error though, then use the Express Lane web support pages to send a note to the AppleID support folks.
