I don't think I have any use for this. I'm running off a PC with Vista not MAC. Could this program be messing with my iTunes update failures? What happens if I unistall it?
HP, Windows Vista

    Here’s how to safely uninstall Bonjour and remove mDNSResponder.exe

    Just follow the few simple steps below to remove Bonjour fro your computer.

    1. Go to Start > Run > type the command below and hit OK.

    “%PROGRAMFILES%\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe” -remove

    2. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Bonjour
    3. Rename the mdnsNSP.dll file in that folder to mdnsNSP.old
    4. Restart your computer
    5. Delete the Program Files\Bonjour folder

    The first command will stop and remove Bonjour Service from your computer. To confirm, go to Start > Run and type services.msc. Look for Bonjour Service name. If it’s not there, you’ve successfully removed it.
