you can deauthorize from 1 computer as i did it earlier this year . . . a window came up that said that you can only deauthorise one time a year. i did it as i had old machines among my 5 that were no longer being used. i then promptly filled my 5 limit with my 2 computers and my wife's laptop and each kids' computer (that's 5). now that my Macbook died and a new one is on the way, i have to deauthorize again and it's only been about 5 months. i guess i'll have to call Apple to get special permissions. doh.
And Reboot, just curious, why should I refrain from telling them about the new computer? It was the 5th one I've authorized.
One problem, I realized that somewhere along the way, I changed my user id from ekrga to my email address. That may be why they won't authorize that particular cd. I haven't tried moving over any others that I downloaded from iTunes. There weren't _that_ many...
Ellen it is? I can do that. By coincidence I have a real name too, Jim.
And Reboot, just curious, why should I refrain from telling them about the new computer?
So that they don't count it as your one and only free call for support, you were concerned about that in your post. I don't know if they would but it's information they don't need to know to do a blanket de-authorization.

Since the new Mini is only the third authorized computer that I have, there is not the option to De-authorize all yet. Doesn't matter much since the dead G4 won't be used ever again and the HDs are not going to the graveyard with it.
