Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

When starting up Itunes and sometimes when just starting up computer, you will receive a message that bonjour (itunes helper?) has encountered a problem and needs to close. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing itunes. Also the computer had a message to go to control panel/admin tools/services etc. P.S. Sometimes itunes stops and freezes and you have to go "ctrl/alt/delete" and end the non responding program! Any suggestions?

    Please be patient with me as I am not a guru; what is advanced system care, where do you find it and how do you uninstall it and where do you find the download to re install it. Thanks Darryl

  • Darryl Traves Jan 28, 2011

    Hi Steve, I will have to go now but will be back in about 10 hours. The Security software is CA ( Computer Assosiates)" Internet security suite plus". I did look in Add and Remove hardware but could not see Advanced System Care! Is it something that I should have and where do you find it, and what does it do for you? Look forward to your reply! I'll check in about 15 minutes to see if you require any further information. Thank you once again. Darryl

  • Darryl Traves Jan 28, 2011

    Hello again, I tried "service.msc" and it says windows cannot find anything. "start run eventvwr.msc" is a 512 kb file, bonjour reports all mentioned as type-information; category-none; event-100. I went control panel/admin. tools/services and it claims that bonjour is off but minutes ago when I started the computer and connected to the internet (mobile wireless broadband) bonjour said it had trouble as usual. Thanks Darryl

    Hi, I am very new to FixYa, and I have been replying to your suggestions to keep you updated and I do thank you for your time. When I logged in this afternoon I received a message that I did not accept your solution and basically they say that I have rejected you but that is not the case, so I don't know how to undo whatever I have done to reject you. Sorry if I have caused any problems. Thanks Again, Darryl

  • Darryl Traves Jan 29, 2011

    Hi, Thanks for your suggestions! For an amatuer like me, what you have suggested could take some time but before I start I would like you to assure me that all the purchased items from itunes will not be lost. Thank you for your time. Darryl.

  • Darryl Traves Jan 29, 2011

    Hi, good to see you back! It doesn't worry me if it takes hours for someone to respond as I jump on the computer when I get a chance, type a question and come back later usually evening and morning. I am in Australia and if you are in the northern hemisphere such as USA then we are at opposite ends of the day. I just tried your suggestion and it was the same end result as going control panel/ admin. tools/ services. It claimed to be disabled from the last time but minutes ago when I started up the computer it said Bonjour has encountered a problem and needs to close. When you were rejected, another person came to help and they wanted me to download extra help to completely wipe itunes, from different directions. I replied that, I would like a guarantee that I would not loose all the purchased items from itunes. I have not yet checked for his reply. P.s. part of my problem is that itunes sometimes freezes and you have to go ctrl/alt/delete and choose to end non responding program.

  • Darryl Traves Jan 29, 2011

    I hope you just got my long message because when I clicked submit it didn't load as usual it just dissapeared! I could be at fault for your rejection as well because there are three ways I can reply 1. Add a comment for ..... 2. reply ( beside your advice) 3. (under Accept this solution ) Continue working with this Expert by posting more comments - Reply to ........ And I thought that all roads lead to Rome, don't they? Thanks Darryl.

  • Darryl Traves Jan 29, 2011

    Thanks for your reply, be patient with me as I only use the computer a bit in the morning and evening, so I don't mind your speed of reply. I Think I need to purchase an external hard drive and back up (should have done it a long time ago) itunes as it is 7.9 days 15.15Gb, we have quite a bit of music/audio books/childrens show/podcasts etc.

  • Darryl Traves Feb 02, 2011

    Hi again, I am curious to know if they will let you keep working with me or not! I am not in a hurry but I will wait for your reply before I move on the advice that I received from the other man. ( about deleting all things "itunes" and starting afresh) Many thanks for your time, Darryl.

    Hi, I have just replied to you thru a different avenue. I don't know if you are able to reply back to me more than once. So I have clicked on "Continue working with ......" , rather than replying to your individual messages. See what happens !?

  • Darryl Traves Feb 04, 2011

    Hi, I just went control panel/admin. tools/services , and tried once again to disable bonjour. Strangely enough, it wasn't disabled; so I tried again, this time, it took quite a while (2min.app.) and I got a message like never before, "Could not stop the Bonjour service on the Local computer. Error 1053: the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion." On previous attempts, I saw a small screen with one of those progressive green bars that fill up with the little green squares as things begin to happen. When I have clicked on the stop service option, this green bar would 1/2 fill up and dissapear; maybe because there was another window opened about the bonjour service that said it had encountered a problem and needs to close.( microsoft ), and I usually clicked, "don't send" and maybe that caused the other window to disappear. This time I clicked on nothing and just waited, the green progess bar 1/2 filled quickly and then very slowly from then on, to the above message that I quoted about Error 1053.

  • Darryl Traves Feb 05, 2011

    Hi, We have Windows XP Professional!

  • Darryl Traves Feb 06, 2011

    Hi, I went to windows update and downloaded priority/hardware/software optional downloads! That in itself was a challenge because at one stage the computer wouldn't respond for me, it froze! We usually don't get the user log on window, but now we get it all the time, even when the computer screen goes into sleep mode now, we have to log back in. That is no drama but between one of the downloads it went to sleep and it would not wake up, the user panel was faint and would not highlight for us. Even cntrl/alt/delete would not open so we could close down, so I chose to shut down, it said other people were logged on to the computer and their connection or whatever may be lost; but we are over that hurdle now. I'll see how we go. I purchased an external hard drive today, so I can back up iTunes purchases and try and totally remove and re install as you earlier suggested and also the other expert suggested, along with some download "help to remove" programs. Thanks again for your patience. Darryl

  • Darryl Traves Feb 06, 2011

    P.S. I just went back to the microsoft site and clicked on the review history of updates. And I counted about 12 that referred to Microsoft.Net Framework, Security and other things. Thanks again. Darryl

  • Darryl Traves Feb 14, 2011

    Hi, I have obviously taken too long and they have closed the case on me but that is ok, I can start again. I have copied the iTunes files to a hard drive, but I didn't realise that they are now missing from the iTunes program. When I get some more spare time, I will attempt to wipe the iTunes program completely and start again! See how I go. Thanks for your time and patience.

Hi, I am Steve, lets get you some help
The Bonjour service is the Communications Handshaking system and it is use by a lot of other applications, itunes included.
There is a know issue between Advanced System Care, itunes and Bonjour causing the problem you have described. The solution is to remove itunes and advanced system care, reboot then re-install itunes followed by a new download of the latest advance system care and re-install that. do not use the advanced system care auto update.
An alternative is to disable sharing within itunes - it no longer uses the Bonjour service then - but no good if you want to share your itunes tracks.
Finally, there are issues with bonjour, itunes and some security products - the solution is dependant on the security software you are using so if neither of the above work for you please let me know your security software and I can give you the solution.

    As you don't know what it is it is almost certain you don't have it installed. we need to look at the security software - what anti-virus product are you using?

  • Anonymous Jan 28, 2011

    ok, lets go for the simple solution



    start - run - type in service.msc and ok



    you get a services list - find the bonjour service. Stop the service if it is running and set it to disabled.



    try itunes and let me know if you get any further issues.



    Also go to the error log (start run eventvwr.msc) and see if you get any errors reported by bonjour in the application log.

  • Anonymous Jan 29, 2011

    Hi, I think the reject is because I did not answer you inside 4 hours. I will pass this to my rep and they will sort out that side of things once we have your problem solved

    start run services.msc (not service.msc, my typo sorry) in the services list stop Bonjour and disable the service. Then start itunes and let me know whether you get an error.

  • Anonymous Jan 29, 2011

    yes I got an answer - so we have disabled bonjour yet it is still generating an error. Hmmm.

    Ok start run eventvwr.msc and in the application log find the error that comes up - either itunes or bonjour - copy the description and post that for me - I will take a look at it.

  • Anonymous Feb 02, 2011

    just got your e mail, I am out of the door now myself. I only get an e mail when you reply to me, not for a reply to someone else or a generic reply. I have just caught up with your other posts. Cannot see anything said to another expert.

    I will go through everything I can see when I am at my desk later (in about 6 hours).

  • Anonymous Feb 04, 2011

    got your message. Seen a couple of error messages from the event log. It seems that the Bonjour service is starting. can I check, you have the service set to disabled?

  • Anonymous Feb 04, 2011

    Based on that error the next step is to update your version of dot net. What version of Windows are you using?

  • Anonymous Feb 05, 2011

    using Internet Explorer go to www.Windowsupdate.com and let it download all the fixes needed.

  • Anonymous Feb 06, 2011

    Sounds like your machine had a lot of downloads to add. The key one is the dot net download.

Computer will not detect ipod


I had this issue with the new iPhone 4S (iPod worked fine, but no iPhone sync in iTunes, although I could see it in My Computer). I found many suggested solutions from uninstall/reinstall iTunes Helper, check Bonjour service to ensure it's running, deleting the driver associated with the iPod... none of them worked. Then one day iTunes wanted to update... I let it... everything magically worked after that.
Sorry if you've already tried the updater or a whole new install of the latest iTunes... sometimes the simplest explanation is the fix, so I had to throw it out there ;)

My itunes does not start whwn i clicked on icon.


Here's some info that may help - picked up from other boards where similar problems reported.
First check to see if Quicktime works normally, iTunes will not work without it.
If Quicktime is OK, then use these troubleshooting articles: XP version http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1421 Vista version http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1717
Have you installed any of the following: ACE & K-Lite mega codecs package, QT alternative, Storm codec, WinAVI video converter, Mpcstar, (possibly starcodec pack, 3ivx)
If so uninstall them, they are know to cause problems with Quickitme. Then download the version of Quickime without iTunes: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/win.html Now Remove Quicktime using the method for Quicktime in this article (just Quicktime): XP http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1925 Vista http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923 When you come to your C:\Windows\system32\ folder you can delete any file or folder with Quicktime in the name. Restart you computer Install the stand alone Quicktime and check if it starts. If it does you are in a position to find out if iTunes is OK.
If Quicktime is OK, do you get any error message when you try to start iTunes? If not, open your task manager after trying to start iTunes. Do you see iTunes.exe running on the processes tab. If there is no error and you see iTunes.exe running then iTunes is hanging and we need to look at a slightly different route.

Sometimes it is just a problem with the itunes database file when it won't open after an upgrade. Press and hold the shift key while trying to start itunes. Does it give you an option to choose or create a new library? http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=iTunesWin/8.0/en/15502.html

Bonjour is a common cause of iTunes hanging at start up. i.e. silent launch failure with iTunes.exe running on the processes tab. You can uninstall bonjour if you don't need it. However it is required for sharing libraries and other things
You could also try uninstalling it, then downloading bonjour from Apple and installing it directly. http://support.apple.com/downloads/Bonjour_for_Windows
