On connecting the itouch to my laptop via the USB it crashes
My daughter had an itouch for xmas, this was working via USB port fine for several days downloading from itunes and was charging ok. Then suddenly it decides that everytime it is connected to the USB it crashes the laptop and the blue death screen appears.
The computer and itouch appaer to work perfectly without each other connected, I have tried plugging other items such as cameras without issues.
I have also unistalled the USB root hubs and reinstalled which didn't work!
Why does it do this and how can I overcome this problem?

It could be a bad file. If you're resetting your device, and then adding you music and such back, there may be some bad song, or app that is corrupting your device. On my Mp3 player, it would get stuck on a song that wasn't really there, so I found some corrupt goofy Weird Al song, removed it, and it never happened again.
From what it sounds like, you are working in a Windows environment. What you are trying to do is bridge your wireless ad-hoc network with your wired network connection. Windows does not support this method of connection even though they have the option for "allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection". That would only work if you had two ethernet cards in your system, and that option bridges one ethernet port with the other. It doesn't support bridging to your wireless adapter.
Most laptop wireless cards do not support an "infrastructure" mode, which would turn your notebook into a mobile router. Instead they create an ad-hoc network completely separate from your wired network. There are some commercial pieces of software that can bridge the two, though I've never been able to make them work.
The easiest route would be to go to Target or a local electronic store and pick up a wireless router. You would take the ethernet connection from your laptop and attach it to the router. Then your laptop and iPod would both connect to the internet through the router.
I had the same issue several months ago. If you have admin rights on your computer, create another user and restore the ipod on the new user. Then you will have to go back and to your original user and update. However, you will need to check your USB port and make sure it is fast enough for the update. That is why it crashes when you try to update.
