I think in your iTunes account settings you can deauthorize all computers. But you can only do that one per year. Then you can reauthorize the computers you want.

You won't even see that option unless all 5 of your authorization slots are taken. I did this once a few years ago.

I had this problem too. In my case I had already used my 1 per year "deauthorize all." I emailed iTunes support and they deauthorized all of the computers on my account. I then had to reauthorize the computers I still had.

This is true. I "forced" this about a week ago by having a cousin authorize his computer with my account so I would hit my maximum of 5 authorized computers and then used the "deauthorize all computers" button that finally appeared after that.

if they are so old, just make a new account.

I'm not sure if there is a "once a year" limitation since I deauthorized all my computer at least twice last year.

But you lose your purchases. :confused:
