Windows 7: iTunes Unknown error (-53) when trying to sync iPhone

iTunes Unknown error (-53) when trying to sync iPhone

This is really a continuation from an Apple discussion thread.
(Apple - Support - Discussions - iTunes Unknown error (-53) when trying ...)

Over there, a user showed me how to change my security settings, which made the error go away once:

"
On Win& and Vista go to CONTROL PANEL, User Accounts, click on any administratively privileged user Account, click on link "Turn User Account Control ON and OFF", go through the prompts (you need to be an administrator to be able to do so) and choose OFF.
Click OK and back out.
RESTART your PC.
LOG BACK into iTUNES and Sync away.
"

From the user account, I couldn't access the menu... I had to search for "User Account Control", then slide the bar all the way to the bottom.


After rebooting (logging back in the next day), the error came. I was able to log back into my admin account, go the this window and click "ok"... after logging back into my normal account, it worked; once.
I tried that trick again today with no luck.

I've switched to askign over here since this sounds more like a Windows 7 issue than an iTunes issue.

Note: I've tried "run as Admin" with the same results.

Ideas?

I get the same error, but it doesn't seem to affect how the iPhone syncs. I've still been able to upload and update my music, ringtones, etc. without any problems. I get that error and click "OK", it goes away and the iPhone continues to be sync'd..

Interesting problem, but unfortunately I have no insight.

WOW!!!!

I never noticed before, but my phone DOES actually sync!

Thx, sometimes a closer look is all it takes...


Though I would still like to know how to make the error go away if anyone else has ideas.
