Customer Question

I dont have a Mac but I do have an iTunes situation. I want to deauthorize all of my 5 computers, but iTunes is telling me that I can only do it once a year... why? Well it doesn't matter. Is there anyway to Deauthorize the accounts before the year. Like Now??

Indeed, the end user can only use the "deauthorize all" feature once in any 365 day period.

However, you can deauthorize each computer individually without limitation I believe.

On each computer, open iTunes;

Click the "Store" menu item

*Note: If running iTunes 11 on Windows, you may need to show the menubar

Then, click "Deauthorize this computer...".

If you do not have access to all the computers you would like to remove, you will need to contact a special dept of iTunes Support via the Express Lane service to have them manually do it for you.

Choose the correct category and issue as prompted by the service above and you will eventually reach a web form where Apple promises to respond within 24 hours.

As an alternative, if you do not wish to handle it online, you can try calling this number: 1-800-676-2775. Ask if they can verify you as the owner of the account for the purposes of deauthorizing computers in iTunes and explain your situation.
