What makes you think Bonjour is causing the problem? Are there errors in the logs for Bonjour?

Look at Control Panel>Programs and Features now for Bonjour service which is almost always listed if installed.

If not there, did you previously uninstall it? It might be stuck.

If that's the case, uninstall Itunes completely, then reinstall it for the purpose of uninstalling Bonjour correctly and completely.

abuh,
Because I'm curious about that not showing up in the list of installed programs;

CCleaner | Tools (left-hand column) | Install tab | is BonJour listed there?

Link to CCleaner in my signature.

Is this showing up in the error logs? Or are you just bothered by the folder? If so, look inside the folder for an uninstaller .exe to run, or just delete the folder.

Was bonjour listed in the Startups or Services you disabled in msconfig when you established a Clean Boot per the tutorial?

If neither then it likely isn't the problem so continue working through the steps to look for other clues.

I would also flush the DNS cache to see if it solves your networking problem:

Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0


Save as flush.bat to your desktop.
Right click the .bat file and choose to run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.

If this doesn't help then look more closely at the logs shown in troubleshooting tutorial, for networking related errors logged at startup, google the exact text and identifying number of these errors or post back a screenshot of them, to research how others solved them.

abuh,
If it does NOT show up in CCleaner,then:

Rename the BonJour folder to BonJourSvd.

any program that tries to reference the folder will not find the folder.

ok, i will try it.

however, could this possibly affect my system.

also, if this is not the problem, what else do you think could be causing it.
