Sounds like it is not able to find the Apple USB Driver for iPhone
The Driver is stored in the following location
C:/Windows/System 32/Drivers - Inside this folder should be usbaapl.sys
This is typically created first time iPhone is connected, If it is removed or damaged it may cause a problem with iPhone showing up properly.
*Test iPhone connection in all USB Ports, Make sure you are not connecting to a USB Hub or USB extension cable.
*Test iPhone connection on another PC/Mac to ensure iPhone HW is still working and showing properly
Try the following basic troubleshooting
1. Uninstall the following Apple Software in the following order to help reduce reboots
-Apple Mobile Device Support
-Apple Software Update
-Bonjour
-Windows iPod Updater (Name might be different but look for anything with the word iPod)
-MobileME Control Panel
-Quicktime
-iTunes
*Now reboot the computer
*Download and install iTunes
