I'm trying to install iTunes and set up my mom's new iPad on my parents computer (I myself am a happy owner of multiple Apple products. They have a fairly new HP with Windows 7 that is pretty souped up and fast.

The problems:
1. iTunes is VERY slow. It'll take more than a minute to start up and then moving around requires about a minute or more of downtime. Í've tried uninstalling all Apple applications and reinstalling iTunes without much improvement.
2. Synching the new iPad is really slow. It took at least 5 minutes for iTunes to even recognize the iPad and it's taking a long time to sync.
3. The iPad isn't charging while it's hooked up to the computer.

Does anyone have any advice? This is my parents' first Apple product so I want them to be happy. Also, they live overseas and there are no Apple stores nearby nor many tech support people that are Apple-knowlegable. Thanks!!!!
