Apple Mobile Device Not Working.

I have been trying my best to fix AMD for the past few days but nothing so far has worked.

I have tried
-Reinstalling Itunes
-Reinstalling AMD specifically
-restart computer
-I also tried this solution but it did not work Apple Mobile Device Service is not started

When I run itunes and try to sync my phone I get the error - 'This iphone cannot be used because the Apple Mobile Device Service is not started

When I go to control panel and try to start it I get the error - 'error 1067'

Anyone have a solution?

My AppData folder is getting too big. I found I have 4 GB taken up from what appear to be backups of various iPods, in the Roaming folder under AppData. I hope it is OK to recycle these. -Sean
