iTunes 8.1 refused to install on my Windows 7 machine repeatedly – now I get the failure shown below. But to be fair, my buddy is getting all sorts of Sidebar errors under Windows Vista Business;

 

The simple act of plugging in the iPhone usually goes without a hitch. After installing iTunes 8.1 (x86, Windows 7) I think the phone is detected five out of ten times. The bigger issue is that this is how I charge the sucker! It doesn't charge when the device isn't detected. *Grumpy Gills*

Here is the error my buddy gets today: "The Sidebar gadget "" seems unresponsive. Would you like want to close it to ensure stability of the Sidebar?" Good job on the grammar Microsoft. See below for how to reproduce it.
