Have you tried this....
Turn off your Norton firewall and antivirus...
Then turn on your windows firewall
before you access the net again.
Go to what you want to download and see what happens.
My guess would be that if you can download...
the odds are that the issue is with Norton.
Please let us know how you resolve this.
Alright, I gave that a try and it didn't work.
The exact error message from iTunes is "iTunes could not connect to the iTunes store. The network connection timed out. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, then try again." Based on what I have learned from the iTunes forum, it is probably a problem with my firewall. I would be open to other suggestions.
When I try to update a squared free I get this message "Could not connect to the update server. Please check your internet connection and proxy settings"
I get a similar problem connecting with ICQ (have since gotten frusterated and deleted it though)
I have a feeling that all of these problems are connected.
