I had an iTouch and iTunes was working fine. I recently got an iPhone and as soon as I hooked it up, I am now unable to connect to the iTunes store. I ran diagnostics and it tells me a Secure Link to iTunes store failed. The help button next to it did not help. I checked to make sure my firewall isn't blocking it.
I can't find the error number I received anywhere in support. Can anyone help? Here is the diagnostic info.

    Quite a few people have found that this isolated secure link problem responds to unchecking "Check for server certificate revocation" on the advanced tab of internet options.

    You need to restart iTune sfor it to take effect.

    Otherwise do you have Norton, or have you ever had it even if you uninstalled it? It does come preinstalled on many new PCs.

    OK if you have uninstalled Norton the next step would be to use the Norton Removal tool:

    I am not sure about 64 bits systems, you might need to check compatibility.

    Another long shot try Clear SSL state on the content tab of Internet option.

    Occasionally using the method in this article about something else has worked:

    Do you have any other computers at your location and are they able to contact the store OK?
