Windows 7: Internet and Network fail

Type services.msc in the start search boc, click on the icon, then find Bonjour. Right click on it, choose properties, set it to disabled and stop the service.

Now see if it affects CS3.

I use that a lot
Is a matter of fact bonjour does install with Adobe photo shop so it's most likely causing the problem. You will usually get the now famous "Unidentified Network" problem in the Network and Sharing center.

To fix ...
Run MsConfig

Under the Services tab uncheck the service called "##Id_String1.6844[... and then a bunch of numbers]" by Apple, which Jacee already pointed out.

To remove bonjour for good perform the following procedure.

1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Bonjour
2. Rename the mdnsNSP.dll file in that folder to mdnsNSP.old
3. Restart your computer
4. Delete the Program Files\Bonjour folder

Bonjour is one of Steve Jobs little demons he created just to mess up Windows systems.

Thanks all - it is getting a little confusing
but
My Bonjour folder only has 2 files:
mdnsNSP.dll
mDNSResponder
Why do I need to rename the .dll file
only to then delete it when I delete the whole folder - after the re-boot
does it have some kind of protection?
Originally - I was considering just deleting the folder -but it would seem
it can't be removed as easily as that...or am I wrong
So what about using the removal program/link that LiquidSnak suggests

I am just very wary of messing up an otherwise great PC that is operating nicely

The reason you rename the file is so that you can delate it. .dll's can be difficult to remove unless you rename them sometimes.

I'd be more wary of having a false network on your machine that has been plaguing Windows 7 networks since day one.

I have personally helped diagnose and fixed this problem no less than 100 times so take the advice as you will, it's been proven to work and should also work for you. You will need to reboot and all that stuff after wards.

If you are still having problems then please post your ipconfig /all here and we can go from there.

OK - duly removed - didn't go with out a little resistance!!!

Everything still seems to work and so far internet has fired up 5 times in a row!
I will go back and check through the registry files later to see if there are any remnents...
Thanks everyone!

I'm pretty sure your good to go Geof777. Removing bonjour has worked to fix this problem countless times.

Uhh - No - I spoke too soon!

I have now lost the 32 bit Internet facility
64 bit works fine
There are a lot of things that just don't work on W7 Internet 64bit
so I usually switch to the 32bit internet explorer for those
(video clips - flash player - that sort of stuff)
Diagnostic can't find what the fault is . no internet site works.

I could system restore - but that might not work either as I completely removed the Bonjour and all
it's registry files too.
Internet explorer 64 is fine though

Hmm, that sounds like a software issue with IE8. Would you be willing to try a different browser, such as Google's Chrome, or Internet Explorer 9?

Also, what are you running for anti-virus?
