    My daughter has an ipod touch 2nd gen... it has not been updated in ages so I plug it into the computer and it tells me I have software updates that need to be done as I was expecting...

    I go to download the updates and I get a "timed out" message 4 - 5 times... I was turning off my anti virus because I know that can cause conflicts I also turned off my screen saver and power saving settings (I hate apple)

    so I think forget his I am going to do a system restore and go from there wipe everything and start from scratch I know this can be a lengthy process but I have time to do it.

    it got 3/4 of the way through and froze... the progress bar didnt move and we are talking in 5 hours... no movement at all... so I unhook it and reboot my computer and try and start again. (I hate apple)

    2nd attempt at the system restore and it gets about 1/2 way done on the progress bar and freezes again... I have been waiting 8 hours now with NO movement (I HATE APPLE)

    what do I do now?

    did I say I really hate apple? this is why I will not get an Ipad!

    I am assuming you mean that you are trying to upgrade an I-Touch and not an I-pod. My wife has an I touch that is several years old and she just upgraded it and it did take more then a few hours. In your case it does sound that something is wrong but I would go on line and put in the search line the problem you are having and I am certain that someone will come up with an answer. As far as Apple and the I-pad I previously never owned anything Apple until recently when I got the I-Pad and I just love it I have had some minor issues with it but whenever I do I go on line and search the problem and the answer is always there.
