Hi-

I just got the new Itunes 7.0, and I am getting the "Network Connection Refused" message. I WANT to give you my money, Apple - but your system won't let me log in!

I had the previous version and it worked fine, my internet connection is great. Here's the diagnostics. Any help would be appreciated.

Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (Build 2600)
Sony Corporation VGN-BX570B
iTunes 7.0.0.70

    Hey Davard,

    What firewall/security software is running on the ocmputer?

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I'm using Norton Internet Security 2005 AntiSpyware Edition.

    I tried the DNS flush and the popup disabler, then rebooted, and those did not work. I even uninstalled my google toolbar to get rid of it's pop up influence as well.
    The firewall is whatever one is built into my Norton program and my Belkin wireless router, but I've never had any connectivity issues with it. My previous Itunes 6.0.5, I think, was fine.

    Hey Jason

    I found the fix. I went in my Norton Internet Security setup and disabled my personal firewall. When I then loaded up Itunes it pulled the CD tracks from the CDDB database and allowed me to log into the ole' IStore.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. This might help some other users out as well.
