Try and remember what happened in the 24h that you were using your PC. Did you install any new software? Was it the SP3 that you installed? Which software did you use - could it be that one of your softwares which is common to both PCs is infected with a virus, or that it's incompatible with other pieces of software? Do you have a recent Restore Point that you could go back to? For now I would try RegCure to fix your Registry problems and possibly get it to an operational state again, and later I would install Acronis True Image and use that to create complete hard drive images or clones so that you always have something to go back to, even if your physical drive fails.

If you haven't done it already, load Service Pack 3 along with the Windows updates. That will stop that.
SP3 is no longer available from Microsoft as it does not support XP anymore. Beware of where you download SP3 from, make sure you have a proper anti virus programme installed!

Why itune cannot connect to the store


ResolutionClick on the description below that most closely matches your iTunes Store situation:

I have been unable to connect for less than 24 hours Try quitting iTunes and reopening it. If the issue persists, it's possible the store is temporarily unavailable for maintenance. Try again in a few hours. You might want to check the iTunes Store discussion board to see if a connection issue is impacting many other iTunes Store customers.
iTunes Store Discussion Board (Mac)
iTunes Store Discussion Board (Windows)
I have been unable to connect for more than 24 hours on a Mac. If you haven't been able to connect to the iTunes Store for more than a day—and other customers on our discussion boards aren't experiencing similar issues—a software or internet service provider (ISP) configuration issue may be blocking your access to the iTunes Store. Click here to find out which ports and servers need to be allowed for iTunes Store access.
  • Your copy of the iTunes application may be out of date. If iTunes is out of date, it will not be able to connect to the iTunes Store. You can download the latest version of iTunes from our website:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
  • You may need to reset your keychain. Connection issues are occasionally caused by keychain issues. Click here to find out how to use Keychain First Aid to resolve this issue.
  • You switched to a new ISP. If you didn't install new networking hardware, your ISP may be blocking access to the iTunes Store. Let your ISP know about article TS1629 which can help your them configure their servers to allow iTunes Store traffic through.

  • You upgraded to Windows XP Service Pack 2. Windows XP Service Pack 2, by default, enables the Windows Firewall. As with a third-party firewall, you will need to configure Windows Firewall to allow iTunes to access the iTunes Store. To do so:
    1. From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.
    2. If the Control Panel is in Classic View, skip to step 3, otherwise open Security Center.
    3. Open Windows Firewall.
    4. Click the Exceptions tab.
    5. Select the iTunes checkbox to enable it as shown here:
      1. ts1368_1.jpg
      2. Click OK.
      If you have further questions about configuring the Windows Firewall, contact Microsoft's Service Pack 2 hotline at (888) SP2-HELP. Read this article for compatibility information.
    6. You switched to a new ISP. If you didn't install new networking hardware, your ISP may be blocking access to the iTunes Store. Let your ISP know about this article which can help your them configure their servers to allow iTunes Store traffic through.
    7. The "hosts" file may be blocking the iTunes Store Instructions for Windows 2000 and XP: Find your hosts file. The hosts file is normally found in the following locations:

      Windows XP: C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC
      Windows 2000: C:WINNTSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC

      1. Select the hosts file. Then click the Edit menu, and choose Copy.
      2. Then, click the Edit menu again, and choose Paste. There should now be a duplicate of the hosts file named "Copy of hosts".
      3. Drag the original hosts file to your desktop.
      4. Right-click the "Copy of hosts" file and choose Open. You may be prompted to choose the program you want to use to open this file. Double-click Notepad.
      5. When Notepad opens, click the Edit menu and choose Select All. Then click the Edit menu, and choose Delete.
      6. Click the File menu, and choose Save. Close Notepad.
      7. Right-click the "Copy of hosts" file, and choose Rename. Type "hosts" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
      8. Restart your computer and try connecting to the iTunes Store.
      • Make sure that your computer meets the iTunes minimum system requirements.
      • Make sure that your operating system is up to date:
        • For Mac OS X, use Software Update to determine if you need to update your system.
        • For Windows, go to Microsoft's Windows Update webpage.
      • Make sure that you can access the Internet on your computer.
      • You may have firewall or other security software that is preventing your computer from connecting to the iTunes Store. Click here to find out which ports and servers need to be allowed for iTunes Store access.
