    Uninstalling and then reinstalling your iTunes should also get your Bonjour reinstalled.


    For the reinstall, use an installer downloaded from the Apple website:




    ... or you could get it back via your Apple Software Update for Windows.


    If you'd prefer not to uninstall iTunes, try the following procedure.


    Download and save a copy of the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64setup.exe) installer file to your hard drive:




    Download and install the free trial version of WinRAR:




    Right-click the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64setup.exe), and select "Extract to iTunesSetup" (or "Extract to iTunes64Setup"). WinRAR will expand the contents of the file into a folder called "iTunesSetup" (or "iTunes64Setup").


    Go into the folder and doubleclick the Bonjour.msi (or Bonjour64.msi) to do a standalone Bonjour install.

    If your operating system supports Restore Points, simply go back to your earliest Restore Point. This allows you to keep your Library in-tact
