"Bonjour" (which is installed without permission - it is a Mac product but can be installed on XP) was unsuccessfully installed on my computer.  When I run a Windows Registry cleaner (Registry First Aid), it detects several Registry entries related to "bonjour" as follows:

If I go ahead & delete these entries, I am then unable to (1) access the internet and (2) unable to reboot back into Windows XP.  In that case, I need to reboot in Safe Mode & execute the RFA backup file to restore the Registry entries which were deleted.  Then all is OK.  

I could just tell RFA to ignore these Registry "errors" but their presence "disturbs" me.  Can anyone shed any light on this & tell me how I can clean up this mess (like, why is this happening)?  Thanks.

Get Windows Install Cleanup from Microsoft Site and see if this particular piece of software shows up in it, if so then uninstall it from there.

If not, then install it again. Run the Windows Install Cleanup to remove 'em properly.
