    Unauthorize my crashed PC
    My itunes account says I have 5 computers authorized. I'm not sure what the 5 are -at least one of them must be my old crashed PC. How do I free up my computers I'm not using?

    There is an option in iTunes to deauthorize computers. I don't remember which menu it's in at the moment. I think that option deauthorizes all devices associated with the account and then you can re authorize the devices you want to use.
    Did you know these forums are soon to be shut down?

    But that only seems to be how to deauthorize "this" computer. But the computer I want to deauthorize is no more.
    I guess it will be deauthorize all. Thanks.

    The bottom option deauthorizes all computers, the start authorize process again.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
