    Under Preferences > Store > Automatic Downloads, if I uncheck Music, Apps and Books (the only boxes that are ticked) and close the Preferences window, those items are re-checked the next time I open Preferences.

    I've tried deleting the com.apple.itunes.plist file, and both the localstorage files that were present in ~/Library/iTunes. I opened the com.apple.itunes.plist file in Xcode, and after examination could find no Boolean that related to Automatic Downloads. The file is definitely user-writeable. I have an active internet connection when I attempt the changes.

    Advice would be appreciated.

    Maybe try signing in and out of iTunes as well as doing chmod +rwx on the plist file?

    Also maybe try repairing disk permissions in Disk Utility.

    Signing in and out did the trick. Thanks.
