Do you have iTunes installed on your machine? Windows machines require iTunes for the drivers it provides for iDevices.

This is a bug in greenpois0n. Make sure you use the latest release. Try to turn off antivirus and firewall software and run as admin. If a temp. folder or files were written, delete them. If still no luck, wait for a new release or try on another PC or Mac.
