    For whatever reason, every time I open iTunes, it checks for purchases, even though I know for a fact I've already downloaded all of them. The dialog box pops up, interrupting whatever I was about to do, and makes me put in my iTunes store info to check, but when I do, it checks and of course finds nothing to download. But the next time I open iTunes back up, it'll do it all over again. Any idea how to stop this?

    Since no help came here, I searched Apple's support site forums and found my answer. So I thought I'd share it in case anyone else had the problem too.

    Stop iTunes then go to :
    Music / iTunes / iTunes Music / Download
    and trash the file named list.plist.
    Launch iTunes.

    in iTunes, go to Preferences, Store.

    Unselect the "Automatically download prepurchased content"

    1) I already found the answer.

    2) Even if I hadn't, that option isn't applicable to me, and I don't even think I have it selected to begin with (I'd check to make sure, but I'm not on my Mac at the moment). I don't ever purchase TV show seasons on iTunes, and thus would never use the option.

    I think my problem was that for whatever reason, iTunes kept thinking I still had a song to download, possibly after a crash or after I might have exited iTunes before it was done downloading, when in actuality I had already checked and then finished downloading the song already. Deleting the plist file "reset" iTunes thinking I had a song to download. Problem solved.

    Thanks anyways though.
