    Hello. I'm a bit new to Macs so forgive me if I'm missing an obvious fix. Every time I start iTunes, it asks me if "iTunes.app can accept incoming network connections." It's listed as an approved program in my firewall security preferences, so I'm not sure what else to do to prevent this.

    I've uploaded a screenshot for reference.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try this:

    1) Open Terminal
    2) In the Terminal window, run the command:

    codesign -v /Applications/iTunes.app

    3) If the output of this command is anything but "Valid on disk," download a new copy of iTunes, drag your current version of iTunes from the Applications folder to the Trash, empty the Trash, then install the new copy. (This will not delete your songs or movies.)
