Bonjour Service - what exactly is this app?

  bamfiesler 12:18 13 Dec 2008

Zone Alarm alerts me to this at startup and I deny it access to the web. What exactly is it? I understand it allows PCs to 'talk' to each other, but I don't know how this go onto my system. The only thing I think that it could be related to is iTunes, which I update about three weeks back and that BS thing has been popping up ever since.

Any ideas?

Seems you probably did get it bundled with iTunes. Doesnt seem to ask if can install

Bonjour has been known to cause connectivity problems. Get rid!

Thanks, guys; thought it had something to do with iTunes. Will bin it, but what is it and why did Apple piggy-back this onto iTunes? DRM, or just plain sniffing?

Ok, just checked Oldebeeref2's link. Phuq that - Apple can go to Hell. I don't like schit getting dumped onto my PC without my authority. I was always unsure about Macs and I won't go near one after this. iTunes is control-feakery enough, but that Bonjour bollox was a bit much.
