    question how do you or can you stop apple stuff running on a pc.
    I mean so it does not run automatically.
    I have been into services and disabled iTunes etc but some of them keep starting by then selves.
    At this moment the PC has not been rebooted since ie 2 days ago iTunes is not running unless I select it .
    But running task manager I can see icloud photo stream and icloud services is running
    I would like to stop these running unless I actually select it from the menu.
    Do they restart because I use adobe CC for my photography as I can only think that is the reason as when I process a picture they restarting

    thanking you in advance

    I'm not sure about Adobe integration but general advic is to run msconfig, switch to the services tab, check the "hide Microsoft services" box then until any services you don't want to autoload. Then switch to the startup tab and do the same.

    I'm pretty sure it's the bonjour service that starts mos Apple apps during boot

    think fanni may be correct I have not touched bonjour services
    But what else may use bonjour or it or singular for apple
    just did a search

    Note: Disabling the Bonjour System Service may limit the functionality of programs that use Bonjour.

    Bonjour locates devices such as printers, other computers, and the services that those devices offer on a local network using multicast Domain Name System (mDNS) service records. The software comes built-in with Apple's OS X and iOS operating systems.

    Bonjour is used on kodi to announce net settings for setting up wifi remotes as well .
    but uninstalling bonjour will cause more problems than it's worth .
    just stop iTunes ,bonjour from running at start up .
