I mean I don't change my internet settings very often so I am not sure how long it has been doing this. It is just that lately my iTunes hasnt been able to connect to the internet and I am following Apple's instructions on how to fix it. I am going to Control Panel, Internet Options, then clicking the Connections Tab. Everything below the button to setup an internet connection is greyed out. Apple is telling me to click on LAN Settings.

if you are logged into the admin account, you should have full access to the lan settings. Can you access the connections from IE > tools > internet options > connections tab?

No I can't access it from internet explorer either. Yeah, I'm really confused because I am the only account on this computer and it says I am the administrator
