I'm sure a lot of you uses iTunes (maybe I'm wrong?), so hopefully I should get a helpful answer somewhere in the future.
Recently, I've been throwing out Windows Firewall for third party firewalls. Since ZA Free seems to cause clashes and hog system resources, I've been using Sunbelt Kerio Free or Sygate free. Both of them tell me that iTunes is trying to access the Internet and repeatedly. Unfortunately, my Internet connection is much slower than usual at the moment (if I find out that someone is stealing kilobits off of my wireless I'm going to skin them alive), I just have Sygate or Sunbelt block iTunes; everything seems to run fine with iTunes when I block it.
So, my question is: Is it ok (in terms of the iTunes performance and security) to continue blocking its Internet access?
