I suggest that you check your security software and settings, which do block ports and stop connection to Apple servers during update and restore. Do the following:

  • set the correct data, time and time zone on your PC
  • log in to an administrative account (on your computer)
  • download the latest version of iTunes
  • update your operating system
  • update your anti virus
  • avoid using proxy settings and connect to iTunes without using an internet proxy
  • if you have disabled the proxy settings, restart your computer and try again
