I have a PC that more often than not leaves a blank blue screen after logging on. Task manager works to enable a normal shutdown. I have used msconfig to disable all software and am now working through the services. There is one called ##Id_String1.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B879762## which I think may be causing the problem. It seems to be related to Bonjour. I have tried deleting the key from the registry but can't. If I stop and disable it, it is started on the next reboot.

1. Is it required and what does it do ?
2. If is is not, how do I get rid of it ?

THanks

I had already checked for Bonjour in add/remove programs and it wasn't listed. Neither is itunes installed, but you have given me enough to go on with with your link (I think). There is a bonjour folder under program files (2 files) so will get rid of that and continue.

Or you can try using RevoUninstaller to remove that proram if it's not listed in Add/Remove....

If you just remove its folder from  Program Files and if the service is still listed, try manually removing the service using sc.exe.

At the command prompt, run these commands:

sc stop "Bonjour Service"
sc delete "Bonjour Service"


That should remove the service and the corresponding file will be deleted when you delete the Bonjour folder.

Thanks!
