Can I deauthorize iTunes with a backup in Windows 7?

I did a fresh install of iTunes and while the Windows 7 upgrade process does warn you to deauthorize iTunes before the install (see link below) it does not do the same for a fresh install.

"The only way to do this would be to deauthorize your account with all machines. See my answer to iTunes Always Asks to Authorize:

From the Store menu, select View my account. Once you login, go down to Deauthorize all computers and follow the prompts. Then Authorise your computer again using your favourite method. Hopefully, everything should be working fine after that.

I think you can only do this once per year, but I have never heard that directly from Apple."
