Whenever I try syncing my ipad to itunes (on Windows 7), itunes stalls out on the "finishing sync" If I disconnect the ipad after a long wait, the apps can not be started, the icons just "explode"

Do I need to reinstall itunes on my PC? How do I do that? Will I loose my apps, or will they transfer when I reinstall?

At least the sync gets through the back up phase. It does take a long time for itunes to "verify" my ipad, but it does...

Help! I am going through Pocket Frog withdrawal!
Ipad, Windows 7

    Hi,

    Try troubleshooting your installed apps. With the iPad connected to your computer, launch iTunes. Select the Apps tab in the menu.

    Under *Sync Apps* on the left side of the window, deselect all but three boxes. Then click the Sync button bottom right side of the window.

    If you can sync those apps successfully, then try 3 more apps. Hopefully you can narrow down the app that's causing the problem.
