    Just run the .exe that you downloaded and put your iPod into DFU Mode. Then it should start and you will be done in a few minutes

    DFU: DFU, or Device Firmware Upgrade mode, allows the S5L8900 to be restored from any state. It resides in the VROM and is vulnerable to the pwnage 2.0 exploit. In other words... its like Recovery Mode, but used if your iPod/iPhone is "severe" condition.

    Hold power and home for 10 seconds, exactly.
    Then let go of the power button and keep holding the home button for another 10-30 seconds. You should let go of home after your iPod gets recognized by iTunes. It should say something about an iPod being in Recovery Mode and having to be restored, but the screen will be black.
