Ater the 3 simultaneous files are downloaded, they dont save themselves to proceed to the next one. A file will show 24.3M out of 24.3M, but it doesnt disappear in order to move to the next one!

I purchased a CD on iTunes, the first 3 songs download, but will stay with the 3 full blue progress bar, and not move to the 4th.

Same in updating APPS, the first 3 will download, but will stop there without really updating.

I need to FORCE QUIT the iTunes app, as it shows a dialog box stating files in progress, but it will not quit, if QUIT is clicked.

From gcoat on the Apple discussion list:

1. Exit iTunes (if not possible, force-kill it in task manager, Ctrl-Alt-Del > Task Manager, right click on iTunes and select "End task").
2. Delete every folder in this directory:
~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/DownloadsNote: The tilde (~) refers to your Home directory.Windows Vista:
\Users\username\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Downloads\

Windows 7:
\Users\username\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Downloads\

Windows XP:
\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Downloads\
3. Start iTunes and start your downloads again.

Might work for you; have a backup, etc.
