    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.

    When I go into the pages you link here  I cannot see the files you are talking about downloading - is there a simpler explanation or pages with the exact links as I cannot see what you are talking about in these links ???

    OK I went in to the first link and realised I dont click RUN I click SAVE AS and it saved as itunessetup.exe and I downloaded WINRAR but when I right clicked on itunessetup.exe there was no option to extract only compress so I just clicked than and now god knows what I have done.   Why is itunes so complicated. I wish I could find help that was simple to understand and do for someone not familiar with technical IT stuff.  Anyone any ideas what Ive done and basically all I wanted was to reinstall bonjour, as I have reinstalled itunes in the past and lost about 600 songs - so dont anyone suggest reinstalling itunes it always loses stuff!  Please anyone any idea how to reinstall bonjour simply ???
