    How may i deauthorize ALL my Macs and some windows from using iTunes? problem is that i am away on a little trip and cant deauthorize each one. I would like to deauthorize all of them then authorize them back.

    I don't think you can deauthorize all of them from any given computer; however, if you log onto your account at iTMS, you can see how many remain authorized. It's unfortunate that you can't manage them there.

    You need to email Apple's iTMS customer support people and tell them to deauthorize all your computers. They will do it, then you simply re-authorize the one's you want.

    Also, in the future, remeber to deauthorize before you perform a clean install.

    I almost made the same mistake before I did a clean install on my PowerBook. Right before I was going to click 'Earse Partition' while on the Mac OS X startup disc, and I just remembered...iTunes! :eek:

    Good luck, I should give Apple a call though since I formated my old iBook without remembering about iTunes :(

    yeah, i think the wait times for this are getting longer ... there must be a lot of people doing this and im sure Apple is sick of resetting account authorization.

    i've done it once before ... now i've sold a computer and i don't have access to it! :(

    still waiting.

    peace.
