Please can someone help me to solve a problem I have on start up.

It is a Message coming up on start up saying Apple Sync Notifier. exe unable to locate component, This application has failed to start because Core Fondation.dll was not found.

Could anyone tell me how best I can get rid of this.

Thanks for any help

First question,

do you have any Apple software applications installed on your system, eg iTunes? If not, do you connect any Apple hardware to the computer, like an iPod?

If so, it is likely the Windows Start procedure is searching for some software that has now been uninstalled.

Try this;

Goto Start > Run, type in msconfig, (to clarify, that is MSCONFIG), and click OK. In the System Configuration Editor window that displays, click the Startup tab. In the list search for any Apple entries and if you find any, remove the tick. Click Apply then OK.

When you next reboot the system and Windows loads, it will display an information window stating you have chosen Selective Startup. That window can be suppressed from within the window itself.

Hope that helps.
