Two Days of Restore Error Code 6... HELP!!!

October 11

I have an iPod Touch that's about two years old. I no longer have access to the laptop that it is normally synced to, so I downloaded iTunes on the family computer. After hours upon hours of problems (not syncing, or showing that it successfully synced but getting a "no content" error once it turned back on) I thought maybe it was my iPod that was messing up and not the computer. I reset my iPod through holding down the home button and the power button, and I'm now at the screen that shows the USB cord with an arrow pointing towards the iTunes symbol.
I tried to restore on iTunes, and it will get all the way through until "verifing restore," and then I will get a pop up that says the process could not be completed because of an unknown error (error 6.)
I uninstalled iTunes and installed an earlier version of iTunes, but then my computer wouldn't even recognize my iPod. I reinstalled the latest version of iTunes and Quicktime. Still getting the same error code.
I am on an Administrator account, running Windows Vista 64 bit, and everything is up-to-date. All anti-virus and firewalls are turned off. I've followed all of the steps outlined on the Apple site, and I am down to paying $29 for a phone call to Apple. (Ha! Over my dead body!) I don't have another computer to try it on. I've used two different iPod cords (mine and the cord from another iPod), and have tried out all of the USB ports on the computer.
I'm really hoping someone could help me with this before I lose my mind.
I'm fairly computer literate, but I'm not a whiz. Please don't feel the need to break things completely down into laymans terms, but please don't use pure tech-speak(:

This Question can be best answered by someone who had the Same error pop up, but I'll try my best.  You have an iPod touch 2nd Generation and you don't have anymore warranty for it. I hope you didn't jailbrake it or did something illegal with it like putting a new software on it that should not be on there. Here we go:
Go to your Friends house or anybody else you know that has iTunes on their Computer. Don't sync your iPod!
Try to restore the iPod, or try to put it as new iPod so it'll delete everything but you'll have your iPod problem fixed
