Make a backup of your iphone before you sync it. Right click on the iphone icon on the left hand side of itunes and the option will be there.

Then sync your iphone with what it thinks is a new computer

after its synced restore your iphone from the backup a d everything will go back to how it was.

I did this exact thing yesterday after onstalling windows 7

thanks a lot I'll try that when I get home, my iPod is jailbroken would that make any difference to the back up?

when you sync with itunes it will wipe your iphone, it comes up saying that it is synced with another itunes do you want to remove all data on the iphone and replace with what is currently in the itunes library just now, not sure what you can do

but restoring from backup will put everything back how it was, including all your app data and contacts etc.

i always backup my itunes library too, its only a tiny file so worth it.
