It was not Yoko. It was not Linda. It was John Joslin. The very same John Joslin that works at Adobe. He is the one responsible for CS3. All by himself Jim outed John concerning Photoshop. I'm letting everyone know how he ruined the Beatles.
The bonjour service broke my Vista internet connection.
After removing the Bonjour service, everthing works normally.
After I installed Dreamweaver CS3, I had no internet connection after rebooting Windows Vista.
Windows would start up and show both my network and an "unknown network" in the Network & Sharing Center. This may have happened since my son has a mac attached to the network. Because of the "unknown network", Vista locked out my connection to the internet through my router.
The work around was to disable & then enable my network connection. I had to do this everytime I rebooted. Very annoying.
Adobe should remove Bonjour from Dreamweaver. There is almost nothing worse than installing the best web site development tool and finding that your internet connection is broken. It had me worried that there was a fundamental bug in Dreamweaver.

From my experience if you dont use iTunes or the rest of the CS suite you can disable it, I did. It is a service and as such will use some resources and there is no problem unless you try to uninstall it then it can get complicated. But unless you are desperate for hard disk space, just disable it and everything is back to normal.

>Surely it's better to turn off a light bulb by unscrewing it rather than using the wall switch?
personally, i use rocks. first i remove the light cover. then i step back about ten paces and pick up the pile of good sized rocks i've collected just for the purpose of turning off the lights. then i start chucking rocks at the bare bulb. sure there are some holes in the ceiling. and i broke the picture of my mother in law on the wall with a bad ricochet, but darn it, i get that light off, almost every time! :)
next time don't go messing with your registry. just read post #1! (I know, nobody reads post #1)
I went back and read post #1. So far it seems to work just fine. Thanks for the tip.
And, to everyone else, thanks for the entertainment and education. Now I know why the Beatles broke up, the cause of global warming and why gas prices continue to rise. John J, you've been a very busy guy!
As a tech, one of my favorite tools is ServiWin (free): http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/serviwin.html It's an awesome little Windows Service controller. Applicability here: You can turn off Bonjour (or whatever else you want) with just a couple of mouse clicks and turn it back on when/if you need it. No mucking about with the registry or uninstalling something you end up needing later; just turn it off w/ServiWin to free up the resources and turn it back on when you need it.
Naturally, it'll work for services other than Bonjour, too :) I, for example, turn off Windows Auto Update until I'm ready to do an update run. Enable the service, get/install the updates, disable the service to free resources, carry on. Actually, I do the same for everybody's update service...they'll phone home when *I* want them to!.
Service: Bonjour Service - Apple Computer, Inc. - C:\Program Files\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe
Unknown file in Winsock LSP: c:\program files\bonjour\mdnsnsp.dll
Go here and look for TurnOffBonjour.exe

Adobe, make lighter Apps.. its no wonder everyone is dumping adobe PDF reader and going with Foxit.
Love the macromedia products you just bought and your direction and not dumping fireworks.. but cannot stand the spyware.
YES, VIRGINIA, there is a way to 'uninstall' Bonjour... Go into task manager window (1st!) select mDNSResponder.exe choose 'end process tree' and shut the service down. Then (2nd!) go to the Bonjour folder in 'Program Files' cut and paste the contained .dll file to the System32 dllcache folder in your Windows Files. Then (3rd) rename the mDNSResponder.exe file with a different extension, such as .jpg (you will be given an alert that this may cause the program to quit responding properly... which of course is part of what we are doing here!). Then delete the file, and the Bonjour Folder, be sure to then = empty trash. And Finally go into Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services (as Root or 'Admin') and select the ##Id_String2.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B879762## service string, click mouse menu and properties and DISABLE the service... a lot of work for a very nice way to plug a security hole. If you have a firewall it helps to stop or lock 'all internet connections'. And PAUSE your AV. Upon completion of the above tasks restart AV FIRST,.. then firewall.
