How to de-authorize stolen computer

I had a "second" computer stolen and I want to de-authorize it. In iTunes there is one button for de-authorization .... but it's for all computers. Can I de-autherize all and then authorize my remaining computer from that same computer?

    Yes, click de-authorize all and just authorize the machine you currently use.

    Marvin, thanks for the reply. I thought that might be the answer but it was great to be reassured by someone with more computer smarts than me. I did the "de-authorize .. authorize" thing and it seems to have worked perfectly. Thanks again. .... Newbee.

    If you have the De-authorize button then that is the only way to de-authorize your computer. Click it and choose the computer that you are using.
