Have been syncing my iPhone to my eMac. as it has my most complete iTunes library. Now when I try to log in, a message comes up. "You are unable to log in to the user account -- at this time". I have restarted the computer, shut it down and tried again over a couple of days. Same message keeps coming up when I try to log in. Help, please!?!

Is this a "User" or "Admin" account that you're trying to log into?
