Fix a 'permissions' problem with iTunes authorizations Apps
If iTunes gives you an error saying that it cannot authorize your computer because of a permissions error, then here's how to fix the problem. Make sure that iTunes is not running, then as an administrator, delete the following directory: /Users/Shared/SC Info You will then need launch iTunes and reauthorize your computer. You can do this by playing a file that you have downloaded from iTunes -- free or pay, it doesn't matter -- and entering your Apple ID and password when asked.

[robg adds: Note that this folder is hidden in the Finder (at least, on my machine it is). So to delete it, you can use the Terminal. Type cd /Users/Shared, then sudo rm -r "SC Info", and supply your password when prompted.]

Fix a 'permissions' problem with iTunes authorizations
Authored by: saxguy34 on Dec 25, '09 11:11:35PM

Spent last two days trying to fix a permission problem to no avail. Deleting the /Users file has fixed the problem so I can now authorize the computer to a new account, however in the process of trying to fix the problem at one point we were able to authorize the computer to my son's account, but now have not been able to deauthorize his account from this computer. However this hint was a real life saver.
