    You can only have up to 5 computers registered with the same itunes account. Since youve used the 5 computer thing, you can reset all computers that are authorised to your account. To do this go to the itunes store, then click on your account username in the top right. On that page there should be a button that says "computer authorizations: deauthorize all" click that and your done. youll just have to reauthorize the computer you want to use. BUT you can only do this reset once every 12 months so dont go around and link computers to your account.

    dean is right, the computer doesnt matter so long as the one your using to deauthorize all of them is connected to the internet.

    See here for more info.

    You can only authorise a maximum of 5 iTunes accounts on each iTunes installation. You must deauthorise registered accounts through iTunes in order to add new ones.
