To solve the iTunes error 7, first you have to repair .NET 2.0 Framework Installation on your computer. This is the may cause to why this error keep on happening again and again when you open the iTunes. To repair .NET Framework 2.0, you should
* Click start menu and run Control Panel

Secondly, to more effectively prevent and fix the iTunes error 7, it is recommended that you can fully scan your computer with your antispyware program to remove all existing threats and block all potential risks to the computer. A virus may reset any setting on your computer without letting you know and stop you from running your iTunes correctly. With a virus-free computer, I believe you can run your iTunes smoothly all the time without errors.

In the two above solutions do not help, you can try uninstalling and re-installing the iTunes program. To do this, you can go to “Start > Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs” to first uninstall the iTunes application from your computer and then reinstall it again with the installation CD. But before the reinstallation, it is highly recommended that you can scan your whole system with a registry clean utility as it helps to detect and remove all invalid leftover entries immediately, returning you a fresh system again within steps.

We know that registry acts as the most important component of the computer and controls the proper running of the computer and all programs installed on the PC. When there are some errors existing in this database, the system will fail to read the needed files correctly and then display an error 7 message when the computer cannot load the iTunes program correctly. So, if the solutions above do not help to fix the error, do remember to pay several minutes to download and run a registry cleaning tool to see whether it helps or not. According to my own experience, this will sometimes be the most effective solutions to fix various computer errors.

With the simple instructions above, you will be able to easily troubleshoot and get rid of error 7 in iTunes. However, if you see a similar message, but do not see “Error 7″ within the message, then this article will not resolve your issue. Sincerely hope that you can check my other posts for help!
