Hey, Im still pretty new to Mac in a few areas and I need to delete the Kodak All-in=one printer from my bonjour account. Can anyone explain to me how to do that? cause every time i turn on my imac I have to deny the Kodak bonjour thing from accepting connections. I deleted the program months ago but it didnt delete it from my bonjour account. Thanks

Can you post a screenshot of the thing that pops up asking you to allow/deny the connection?

I am guessing it might be some service that did not get removed/uninstalled when you removed the Kodak program, but seeing a screenshot of the "popup" might help me figure out what might be doing it.

How did you delete the Kodak program?

The screenshot might help me figure out what is causing the popup...and maybe help us get you a solution.

OK, it looks like the Kodak Bonjour is still loading at start up. If so, then it should still be listed under your user account's "Login Items". Try going to the Accounts settings in System Prefs. Then select your user account. And then click on the "Login Items". If you see the Kodak program still listed, then click on it to select it and then click the little "minus" button. Hopefully, that should do it.

If it does not, then I have another thing to try...so let me know how it went.

Which version of the Mac OS are you running?

Leopard (10.5.x)? Snow Leopard (10.6.x)? Tiger (10.4.x)?

OK, the short term fix would be to add the program (KodakAiOBonjourAgent) to that "allow" list for the Mac OS firewall. In Leopard, that is under the Security pane of the System Prefs. Click the Firewall tab under that pane and then select the third option and then add that program to "deny" (or "allow") it all the time. That should at least make the popup go away.

Then beyond that you could try using Spotlight to find any instances of KodakAiOBonjourAgent.

OK, now you are just being difficult! ;)

:D

You have me stumped. About the only other thing that I think to look at would be the KeyAccess program for adjusting entries in your Keychain, but I rather doubt that will do anything.

The only other thing to try is to create another user account and see if the same thing happens with that user account. If it does not, then that tells us it is an issue with that one user account...if it does, then that tells us it is something more global.
