    Just spent an hour trying to figure this one out - but it was that simple. Just unchecked the LAN settings box. Thanks!

    Awesome! Thanks!

    It solved everything.... I have to set the proxy on at my job and completely forgot to "turn it off"

    Thanks again

    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.

    thanks for the advice. after a lot of head scratching I finally got round to reading this and hey presto! it worked and I can now view the Itunes store.

    Come on Apple pull your finger out and get this sorted. I would have thought that Apple would have at least tested itunes 9 before release! Duh

    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!

    Hi:
    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
