I'm running iTunes I open iTunes store without any problem; however, when I try to buy or download anything I get a message box with following error:

Could not purchase "XXX". The network connection timed out.

Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, then try again.

I tried to restart iTunes. I even reboot my PC but so far no success.

Any ideas?
