Vodafones have iPhones? Didn't know that.
And as for restore, put your phone in DFU mode using iReb (google it)

Try using another computer then restore using that CFW you made.

You can also try running the programs in compatability mode - Windows XP -Service Pack 2 or 3
Running As Administrator may help as well
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate and I finds that helps a lot with this
