i tried to purchase a song this evening when a pop up explained that my account has 5 authorized computers. OK I own 4 ,,which means that there are 2 computers somewhere that are authorized under my account. What do I do to find these and deauthorize them?

Via iTunes, you can log into your account and there will be a button "Deauthorize" in the account page. This will deauthorize all machines and then you can start over.

I haven't done it but know about it.

Likely possible scenario:
You have something on your computer they wanted to share. It is protected. Your kid saved it out to CD or DVD and passed it on to a friend. In order to play it in iTunes on that computer, that computer had to sign in as "you". Therefore, your kid had to give him/her your user name and PW.

e.g. I had a downloaded TV show where I had bought the whole season. I wanted my daughter to be able to view it. I did a DVD backup of the 15 shows. I sent it to her. In order for her to view on her computer she had to sign in as me and authorize that computer on my account. Then when she was done, she simply de-authorized that computer. I only have 4 computers authorized at the present time, so I could have allowed her computer to stay authorized, but I preferred to keep one open for myself.

If this scenario seems to fit, you could ask your kid to get the other computer user to de-authorize from your account. However, it is quite simple to deauthorize ALL computers (you can do it only once per year though) and then authorize your own one-by-one.
