I know it says its for Vista, but that SupportSoft program could also be on an XP system.
SupportSoft is a program where Comcast & other ISP providers can look into your PC to give remote troubleshooting support. Apparently it conflicts with Apple software. Or Apple conflicts with it.
But assuming you use itunes more than SupportSoft, I'd try disabling SupportSoft.
here is how to get into msconfig in case you don't know

Currently Being ModeratedJul 17, 2008 12:59 AM (in response to Katrina S.)That isn't the same problem and I don't have supportsoft on it either. The number of items on my boot list is as bare bones as it gets I routinely modify it to keep things streamlined.
The program shouldn't be continuing to call a library it can't find and shouldn't start 100 instances of itself. (I'm really not exaggerating on the number of instances it attempts to open)
I even tried to completely disabled the service and itunes still somehow manages to open it up and give me the same painful message and donking noise.Gateway, Windows XP, Notebook, 1 gb RAM, 1.7GB AMD 64 bit processor athlon
Currently Being ModeratedJul 17, 2008 10:10 AM (in response to manny75586)i got the same problem ... neeeeed help -.-
i noticed, that the "Synchronization" Tab in iTunes is no more ...
sry 4 bad english ... ^^
Currently Being ModeratedJul 17, 2008 1:34 PM (in response to manny75586)Well, I had problems with AppleMobileDevice Helper, too, so I uninstalled.
If you have an itouch or iphone this isn't an option for you - but my older iPods sync fine without it.
I agree Apple needs to make a fix. Meanwhile, if you're able to get rid of that using Control Panel > Add/Remove programs, it won't be able to give the other error message about SyncUICoreLocalized.dll.
Please send your comments to Apple:

Currently Being ModeratedJul 17, 2008 8:24 PM (in response to Katrina S.)that solved the error code problem as well as ended the 'should I buy an iPhone or not?' debate.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 17, 2008 9:30 PM (in response to Katrina S.)I have the exact same problem and it did NOTHING.
Does anybody else know of anything that can stop this? It basically spawns the minute I open iTunes, and I have to keep it open for 45 minutes in order to download the 2.0 upgrade for iTouch, but I tried that and even though I had 20-something minutes left, I had to shut down my computer because it was close to 180 processes going. It couldn't even shut down without me having to physically pull the plug.eMachine, Windows XP, desktop, 1stG w/ Jan. '08 upgrade iTouch
Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2008 6:39 AM (in response to Catherine Carroll)i completely reinstalled Windows ... now it works -.-Windows XP, 1,5Gb ram
Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2008 11:05 AM (in response to knoppiks)Yeahhh, I'm not willing to do that. I have too many codecs and whatnot and forget where I got them from.
Anybody else?Windows XP
Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2008 2:24 PM (in response to Catherine Carroll)I just wanted to say that a clean system (fresh windows = clean lol) does not have this problem.
It was Irony. No suggestion, okay?Windows XP, sry 4 bad english
Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2008 2:39 PM (in response to Catherine Carroll)you uninstalled the applemobiledevicehelper and still get this?!? That would be weird. Although you have an iPod so that kinda makes it a non-option for you to uninstall.
Apple REALLY needs to fix that installer (the whole iTunes and the mobiledevicehelper in particular). It crashed my entire system 8 times while trying to install it. It was the first time that ever happened. So it basically installed by just repatching and picking up where it left off which is a really crap way to install an app (I'm waiting for the next problem to pop up)
Note to iTunes developers: the software conforms to the OS not the other way around. Not just on Windows, all OS'. Words to remember and live by.Gateway, Windows XP, Notebook, 1 gb RAM, 1.7GB AMD 64 bit processor athlon
Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2008 4:02 PM (in response to manny75586)I have to keep running iTunes in Administrator Mode just to stop them errors because they are just annoying and keep coming up. I believe Apple should resolve this error.Dell Inspiron 530, Windows Vista, OS version: Ultimate
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 1:23 PM (in response to manny75586)Ah, I guess I should've clarified a bit. I didn't uninstall applemobiledevicehelper.
I also installed the 2.0 upgrade and have no problems with it. But I find this weird; after my iTouch had the upgrade installed and I reconnected it to iTunes the first time, the applemobiledevicehelper didn't spawn and take up all my CPU, which is weird to begin with because just opening iTunes sets it off. I was glad that happened but it was short-lived. The spawning occurred again when I opened iTunes and the problem still exists.
I guess the only thing I can do is wait for iTunes to release a modified version.Windows XP, iPod Touch
Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2008 5:10 PM (in response to manny75586)I get the syncUICoreLOcalized.dll load failure message too. I have spoken with tech support about 4 times for a total of close to 4 hours on this and still have the problem. I have uninstalled and reinstalled everything numerous times. I was then told to download "windows install cleanup" and get rid of the mobile device helper as that was probobly the issue. Now i am still getting the same message but now the Mobile Device Helper wont even install on my system...just get the error message over and over and over every 20 seconds or so.
I cannot sync my iphone with my computer. I really really regret ever buying an Iphone and unless apple gets this fixed and soon, I will never buy another Apple product again.pc, Windows Vista, none
