Something else happened with me but similar.
I was updating my itunes to 10.6, it told me it wanted to restart, after it did, my PC wouldnt get past the "Welcome to Windows" screen even though the PC was working and i could hear the log in sounds of windows and everything, except the screen was stuck on "Welcome to Windows", had to go to safe mode and do a windwos restore to get back to normal.
I would advise against leaving your iPhone or iPod connected if you want to restart or close and open the PC, i am still not sure if the ipod being connected during the restart was the problem or was it itunes itself....

Did you have the iPhone in the dock while upgrading iTunes / rebooting? If you disconnect the iPhone and uninstall all the iTunes pieces (iTunes, Apple Mobile Device, AAS) from the Programs Control Panel and reinstall iTunes, do you still have a problem?

Re-installed iTunes as you suggested and it worked. However, started experiencing random BSOD's. Disk check found a number of file errors on the boot drive - which it fixed. It then took a number of re-boots before computer became stable.
Then, upgraded iTunes on a HP workstation (no iPhone attached). On reboot windows had to attempt a boot repair 3 times before it would reboot. Couldn't even do a disk check without first reverting to the last restore point. It also corrupted Norton. The end result was 2.5 hours of wasted time.
Being an expert pc user, I can safely say that I believe Apple has some serious issues with 10.6.

I installed Itunes 10.6 again, restarted my PC, no problems at all and my PC entered windows fine. I am pretty sure the problem happens if you keep your iphone / ipod connected when you restart your pc, so make sure you remove it if you want to restart or close your PC.
