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

If that doesn’t help there are only two alternatives. Either your firewall is blocking the access or iTunes settings are corrupt.

In that case, uninstall ALL Apple software tool:
