    Every time I attempt to sync my iPad2 with my pc (windows xp) via iTunes my pc freezes halfway through sync? I have updated iTunes on my pc to the latest version but it does not make any difference.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Is your version of XP a 64-bit version? There are problems running iTunes under 64-bit XP.

    Is this a new problem?

    Managed to fix the problem by restoring my iPad to factory settings, then reloading my songs & apps back on, during this process it updated to iOS 5 I did lose a couple of paid apps but never less I'm a happy chappy :)

    You can get your paid apps back (without paying again) by going to the iPad iTunes app and then the purchased tab, find the missing apps (should have a cloud next to them) then redownloading from that screen.
