    'Program Files\Bonjour' Folder

    I can't delete this folder from my other computer. I have no clue what it is and I've done some googling and it appears to be linked to some sort of spyware search bar thing. I haven't found any ways to remove it though. All the links I saw were just HJT logs.

    Re: 'Program Files\Bonjour' Folder

    From what I can find online it may be part of a Trojan DL program. I suggest you follow the instructions for cleaning your PC found in the sticky Spyware, Trojans and Viruses at the top of the forum.

    You could start out by running Hijack This (link in the above mentioned sticky) and posting the results here.

    EDIT: And yes it could also be part of an Apple program, but I have found reference to it in association with some Trojan DL programs. Better safe than sorry I would still run Hijack This.

    I don't even recall that program being installed for anything and the only programs of Apple I use is iTunes and I have iTunes on my other computers and this 'Bonjour' was never there. It's on my other computer (the one my family uses) and I'm guessing one of them was probably the culprit. I think it's definately some sort of malware because they generally don't install anything without my knowledge.

    Take it from someone who has shared computers with family members for some time, they will install things Again I would suggest running Hijack This and posting the results here.

    This thread is a bit old now, but I ran into the same issue, and I don't see a solution posted, so here it is:

    It's apparently not technically spyware. It can still be removed, if desired.

    The "solution" was at the other end of the link in post 3. Apparently, Apple moved (or removed) the information.
