It hardly seems logical that the Ipod syncing had anything to do with it. Unless it’s infected by a virus. The Ipod is a popular device to spread viruses because it usually auto detects connection and starts syncing on it’s own. Hacker heaven.

Possibility 1
The virus jumps into action when you connect an infected iPod video to a machine running Windows that is set to automatically run iPod applications when it detects a connected iPod. So the easiest way to make sure your PC doesn’t get infected is simply to disable the autorun/autoplay capabilities in your iTunes interface. And since you might be infected, any virusscanner would pick up on it, so scan your PC and Ipod.

Possibility 2

Somehow your security settings became higher than usual, maybe a background update from your browser or OS. Try to dig around in both the browser and OS security panels, until you can set a normal level of security.
