De authorising

Firstly may I apoligise to you clever people who know how these things work and no doubt you have answered this question a billion times but I couldn't work it out so please could somebody help me in very easy words. I have 5 devices authorised but two have crashed (one was my sons) I only really need 2 to use now, if I de authorise all - will my itunes still be on this (main) computer - I can hear all the inteligent people groaning, so sorry! Or will my library disappear, I am quite happy to spend the time re authorising my laptop, but I am just frightened how it all works, Sorry, Also a huge thank you to all those who do help us 'not so clever' people.

When you "Deauthorize" the iTunes account, it does not remove your library or uninstall iTunes from any PC or laptop.

Deauthorize just makes all of your iTunes computers so that they are no longer authorized to play your iTunes purchased songs. Once you've deauthorized, you only need to authorize whichever PCs and Laptops that you still want to use with the iTunes Music Store.
