iPhonewarrior, sorry to hijack this but I've tried to start a new thread and keep getting an error saying that I have not added a message. I don't get a dialog box for that and only a subject and poll box. ?

Clear your browsers cache and create a new thread.

So the bar has stopped 75% of the way through the restore process? How long has it been like this?

Have you tried cancelling the restore from iTunes? If you were to disconnect you could probably still restore but you'll probably have to put the device into DFU mode. Again.
