Hi all,

I'm trying to uninstall Bonjour on a bunch of machines. That part is fairly easy which I can tackle with either 'mDNSResponder.exe -remove' or the following powershell script

$uninstallString = (Get-ItemProperty 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\*' | ?{$_.DisplayName -like "Bonjour"}).UninstallString
if ($uninstallString -ne $null)
    & cmd /c $uninstallString /quiet /norestart

Problem is, the first time itunes then loads it comes up stating 'THe bonjour service cant be found'

I wondering if its possible to remove bonjour without that message coming up.

  • Another way to tackle this might be to disallow iTunes from running

leave it installed and just disable the service from starting.

  • this is what we do to get around the warning
    • Thanks for the suggestion. I have disabled the service via GP, but it still causes the error. May just have to go with it.
