try restarting the computer. then if it doesnt work, check your hosts file. that might have something to do with it.

Here follow these instructions: http://www.redmondpie.com/fix-itunes...-how-to-guide/
Just do the part where it talks about editing the hosts file, but instead of adding something, remove any line that has gs.apple.com.
