Hi guys - please can someone offer some help or advice? I have been using NOD32, itunes and an Ipod Touch for years with no problems. However, recently a strange problem has cropped up. Whenever I connect my Ipod to my PC (XP SP3), itunes lauches as it should but immediately locks up for a few minutes. It then comes alive again, but cannot see the ipod, so I cannot sync or do anything ipod related. If I disconnect the ipod whilst itunes is locked, it is immediately unlocked. So it looks like itunes is hanging on the ipod. This seems to be a firewall problem (even though it's a USB connection!?!?) If I disable NOD32 temporarily, the problem goes away and everything works properly. It is not a Defense+ problem, because this is disabled anyway. Does anyone know what's going on and how to fix this? Running with the firewall down is not a viable solution for me. Thanks in advance.
