not sure how long it takes, but after 15 min. i figure it wasen't going to work. any other suggestions
Expert:  Tom replied 7 years ago.
The repair permissions could take pretty long. I would let it run when you do not need it for about an hour.

How are you updating Itunes? via software update or through the apple website here.

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Try downloading it from the link above

Let permissions run till it said it was done last night and still no luck. Tried both places for download. Will retry when I get home tonight, any further suggestions.

Try deleting the Itunes preference file

Click on the picture of a face all the way on the left-hand side of your dock.

This will bring up your home folder.   Go into a folder called Library and then another folder called Preferences.

Delete the file called com.apple.iTunes.plist

You can try this although it has to do with movie rentals see if it applies to you
