    I believe that you need iTunes 10 to connect to the store (but don't quote me on that) your hosts file should contain nothing that has to do with iTunes, or Apple. Just delete those if you haven't.

    I suggest you uninstall, and re-install iTunes (whichever version you want) and if it still doesn't work updating iTunes wont damage anything, and you can switch back to 9 if you want.

    Get someone to give you their hosts file. I replaced mine, and it worked.

    this is what mine looks like

    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
    # 127.0.0.1 localhost
    # ::1 localhost
