Ok, my iPad is in a locked state and the screen shows a slide bar saying "update iTunes". The problem is that everything is frozen. Nothing on the screen works. I can turn it off or to sleep mode, but when it starts up, the same exact screen is showing.

How to hard-reset an iPad.

Bear in mind you may need to do this more than once.

"Turn it off and on again (hold down the power and home buttons until it turns off, then turn it back on again)." from the discussions at:

Given all the above, have you tried plugging it into the computer with iTunes that syncs this iPhone's contents.

That may allow it to come out of its state. Since a soft reset (per the above posts) has not worked, the next step is normally a hard reset.

So then try connecting it to iTunes to see if it will recover.

Thank you Thinkpads_User. That's exactly what it was. I had not updated anything in a long time and I think that it needed to run the new updates. Thank you guys for the other comments as well.
