i had the same problem. what i did was locate the host files and deleted the gs.apple.com entry.

i beleive the location is

c:\windows\system32\host?( or etc) something along those lines and open up the host file and delete that entry and save it.

The hosts file is located in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc

What it does is adding static DNS entry. If you are on Windows 7 or Vista you have to have administrative rights to edit it.
