MAY HELP U!!! Now I had the same problem I just bought an I phone 3GS. Well I finally gotta hold of someone through Apple that knew what there were doing. You want to make sure your firewall isn't blocking itunes. Here's what worked for me.
GO TO THE START MENU ON YOUR COMPUTER
THEN GO TO CONTROL PANEL
THEN IN THE LEFT HAND CORNER THERE SHOULD BE A SELECTION OF VIEWS CLICK THE
CLASSIC VIEW OPTION.
LOOK FOR INTERNET OPTIONS AND CLICK ON IT
THEN GO TO CONNECTIONS
THEN IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER SHOULD BE LAN SETTINGS CLICK ON IT
AND MAKE SURE NOTHING IS CHECKED
THEN HIT APPLY AND OK EVERYTHING OUT.
NOW THIS WORKED FOR ME. HOPEFULLY IT WORKS FOR YOU. THE LADY I SPOKE TO EXPLAINED TO ME THAT I TUNES WILL NOT WORK THROUGH A PROXY.
Thank you so much! This has been bothering me for months! This definitely works, however, now my new question is: I can't find where my balance is! They used to display how much money I had left on my account, but now with ITunes 8 onward, I can't find the balance! But again thanks for your great solution!
had the same problem all weekend, try this fix offered by nantes37, it worked for me:
Launch Internet Explorer
Click the Tools menu
Select Internet Options
Click the Connections tab
Click the LAN Settings button
Make sure that that "Use a proxy server for your LAN" checkbox is unchecked
Click OK till you are out of everything, and then close Internet Explorer
Try again in iTunes to load the store
