Just downloaded and installed the Photoshop CS3 Upgrade. After the upgrade I found that the following service was installed:

Display Name: ##Id_String1.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B879762##

Description: ##Id_String2.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B879762##

Path to Executable: "C:\Program Files\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe"

Is this a bug in the installer, or is this "descriptive" Display Name/Description intentional ?

I’ve seen that Bonjour folder as well, and I vaguely recall that it appeared with the installaton of the CS3 beta. While I’m not sure how it is used by Photoshop or Bridge, Adobe Help Center, or anything else, I disabled the service. If and when something fails that seems related to any kind of DNS service, networking, etc. while using Photoshop, I may re-enable it to see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, I’ll treat it as an undesirable application and keep it disabled. This is apparently something developed by Apple, and you can find a brief on it at <http://images.apple.com/macosx/pdf/MacOSX_Bonjour_TB.pdf>

This has been discussed to death in the CS3 Beta forum < http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/categories.cfm? forumid=72&catid=626&entercat=y>
..

The conclusion is that it is needed for Version Cue and group work but not for individuals who can disable it without any adverse effect.

Thanks to Adobe support, more info:

I suppose naming the service something like "Bonjour", "I am a Real Service", etc. just wouldn’t make any sense…
