Windows 7: Bonjour Service blocking Itunes

Bonjour Service blocking Itunes

Hello.

Lately I've had problems with my Itunes, I've found tons of threads about this problem though none of the solutions worked on my system. I'm pretty sure I have Windows 7 64bit, and not 32bit.

Well, I downloaded Itunes once, it worked for a while then after the download of Itunes 9 it stop working.
I un-installed it and now everytime the installation comes to "Closing Service Programs" ( Or atleast thats the translation from danish to english) it says "Bonjour Service was unable to close, you may not have adminstration properties to it." Now I can find it when I search for it, everytime I run

“%PROGRAMFILES%\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe” -remove (also with the (x86) behind Program Files) it says the name is wrong or the file is unexisting.

I'm not that good with computers, and I don't now how to operate the cmd commands, so if you have a solution I would love a "understandable" answer, haha.

Thanks!
- Simon

Do you have a System Restore point dating back before the installation of ITunes9 which messed you up?

If not, try removing Bonjour service using this tutorial: http://arai.wordpress.com/2008/02/11...nd-mdnsnspdll/

Otherwise, completely uninstall ITunes using Revo Uninstaller in Advanced mode, then reinstall it.

What version of XP pro are you using? If its X64 you are SOL as Itunes has no support for XP in 64 bit mode and the only way to get it to work is a hack version and you have to edit the installers database.
