I need to restore my iPhone from a previous backup (I think it's corrupt). When I plug it into my PC, it works normally. Everything syncs correctly to iTunes and works as expected. When I go to restore from a previous backup, it looks like it'll work fine, but midway my PC will freeze every time, forcing me to shut it down completely. The iPhone does restore part of the way, but acts as new when it comes to alarms, notes, passwords, home screen, contact ring tones, etc.
This has happened to EVERY iPhone I've ever used (3). I've reinstalled iTunes several times, updated drivers, updated USB drivers, ran iTunes in "safe mode" ... I've tried everything I can think of and research. Why will it freeze my computer every time with every iPhone???
The version of iPhone I'm currently using is 4S (but I've also tried with 3G and 4), firmware is up to date, iTunes is 10.6.3.25.
My computer is a PC that uses Windows 7.
If you have any other advice, I'd really appreciate it.
Obviously, the problem is with your PC. Try creating a new user account and see if you have the same problem. If you don't, then the problem is in your user profile. If you do, you're going to have to dig deeper. Try a Windows forum or one dedicated to your specific make/model PC.
