Sometimes, even the simple solution to restoring working backups in iTunes doesn't work. In that case, the ultimate fix is to perform a restore on your iOS device.

If you want to restrict access to your iTunes account on your favorite iOS device, it's easy. Launch the App Store app on your device, tap the Featured tab, scroll to the bottom and locate a button that says, "Apple ID: firstname.lastname@example.org." Tap that button and then tap Sign Out. You'll be logged out of the App Store until you download another app in which case you will have to log in again to complete the download.
If you want to prevent your children from installing or deleting apps, launch the Settings App, then tap General > Restrictions. If restrictions are currently disabled you'll see a button that allows you to enable them tap it to turn them on. Create a four-digit pin code if prompted.
