IPhone & New Hardware - Installation Prevented By Policy

Ok... Basically running windows 7 x64 ultimate.

Currently am trying to instally my iphone/mobile software (after a format) to update its firmware.



* Have installed itunes/quicktime x64.

* Have removed the complete itunes/quicktime apps. from c:\, registry and add/remove programs obviously.. rebooted, reinstalled..

* have made sure i have full control to usbstor.inf, usbstor.pnf (windows/inf)..

* have edited the group policy.. computer config > admin templates > system > device installation > device installation restrictions > enabled 'allow admin to override device installation restriction policies'

* i AM the admin/only account on this pc

* This pc is not part of any domain...

* i have added the file usbaapl.sys to both windows/system32/drivers and windows/inf..

* i have extracted the itunesx64 installer with winrar and solely removed/run 'AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi'

* i have checked the registry controls for usb in HKLM > system > currentcontrolset > services > USBSTOR.. checked to make sure the 'Start' value is 3 and not 4 aka not blocking it. value is set at 3.

Basically i am running out of ideas...
This has happened i would say sometime after format. (half a week ago) not sure as to when.
Am about to run a full virus/spyware scan but somehow don't see this being the issue as i haven't downloaded anything.

System restore is a last resort and i do not even want to think about this option. There should be a fix for this but stuffed if i can find it.. Any help is appreciated..

Thx in advance.

  1. Hi viper-inc,

    It would be helpful if you could provide your full system specs in your Public Profile (accessed by clicking your login name at top of screen).

    I really do not see how the system specifications would help out any due to it being an OS matter..

    specs anyway:
    CPU: Intel core i7 930 @ 2.80GHz OC'd 3.99GHz
    RAM: 3x2GB DDR3 1600MHz
    Mobo: Asus P6T
    Video: ATI Radeon 5870
    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate X64

    Yes all drivers are up to date...
