You will need to put the iPhone in DFU mode to restore it.
was the iphone on a mac before?
If not, if you restore it on a mac you have to use it on a mac.
anyway, to prepare your phone for restore.
connect the usb to the iphone and not to the computer.
Press and Hold the Home Button for 5 Second (do not let it go)
Press and hold the Power Button for 10 Second (count the seconds) (the apple will appear)
after 10 second release the power button and do not release the home button.
Hold the Home button for an additional 27 secs.
The screen may go blank or not.
Connect the usb to the computer with your itunes already open.
It will recognize the device in recovery mode..Restore your iPhone and your set.
WARNING: The Restore process will delete all apps and content and install a fresh software.

The only way is to reflash a new firmware and wipe the code as well as the phone clean.
To do this start itunes on your computer. Then connect your phone to the computer. Once itunes detected your phone hold the POWER and the HOME buttons down at the same time for about 10 seconds. Once the phone flashes off, let go of the POWER button and keep holding the HOME button until you see a message on the itunes telling you that your phone is detected and needs to be RESTORED. Follow directions and it will do its job. I appreciate your positive vote. Thanks

Connect you itouch to iTunes.
Press and hold the power and home buttons
Screen goes black, now release the power button. Make sure you don't release the home button until it says "we have detected an iPod Touch in recovery mode."
Once it does this just do a simple restore, by clicking the "Restore" button under the large iPhone picture.
Hope this helps!
