How To Fix CoreFoundation.dll Errors
Step 1 - Reinstall iTunes Or Other Apple Software
If you have versions of Apple software installed already (including iTunes, Quick Time, RealPlayer, Safari, Mobileme, etc), then you need to reinstall it, or upgrade to the latest version. First of all, you should download the latest version of iTunes or the other version of Apple software you have from Apple’s website and then run the installer. Depending on which version of software you have, it will either show you that it wants to upgrade your current installation or repair your installation. You should let it reinstall by following the on-screen instructions.

If you’re still receiving the error after a reinstall of your Apple software, you should then look to download the CoreFoundation.dll file from the Internet and replace your current version of it. You can download CoreFoundation.dll from our server and then place it in the c:\Windows\System32 folder of your PC. If it asks you if you want to overwrite the current version installed on your PC, select “yes”. After you’ve done that, you should click on Start > Run (or search “Run” on Vista & Win7) and then type “cmd” in the box that appears. This will show you the command prompt, into which you should type regsvr32 corefoundation.dll. After that, restart your system and see if the error has gone.
Step 3 - Scan For Viruses
Antivirus programs are software tools which scan through your PC and remove any of the viruses or malware infections that are on your system. It’s often the case that viruses will infect various DLL files on your computer and then cause them to be unreadable to your PC. To ensure this is not happening on your computer, you should try using an antivirus program to scan through your system and remove any of the infections that cause all these errors. You can download our recommended antivirus program from the link above, but there are a large variety of programs available.
Step 4 - Clean The Registry
The ‘registry’ is a big database inside Windows which keeps a large list of references for the DLL files on your system. This central database is where Windows keeps a list of the DLL file locations for your computer, and is where your system looks each time it wants to use a dll file such as corefoundation.dll. Unfortunately, it’s prone to becoming damaged and corrupted and is constantly being unable to read the files and references that it needs to open the files that it wants. This is a major problem that causes a lot of damage to many different parts of your system. Running a registry scan will remove all the damaged references inside the registry, allowing it to run as quickly and smoothly as possible.
