My youngest son put a password on my oldest son's IPOD and couldn't remember it.  Our computer was ruined by a virus a couple of months ago and we had not installed Itunes on the new computer, but we have ICloud.  So I did a restore, wiping the IPod.  I installed Itunes on the computer and then plugged in the IPod not realizing there were separate steps to restore with ICloud.  Now the IPOD thinks it's "Admin" and won't allow me to select the other backup file in ICloud which has all the Apps and music in it.

iPod touch (4th generation)
