2. Step Click on the Tools icon and then on Internet Options

3. Step Remove any connections that are listed (you can re-add them later and try the Option “Never dial a connection”)

remove proxy and vpn connections

4. Step This should help and you can now connect to the iTunes store again.

Check Firewall, Uninstall iTunes
