The easiest way is to Google the names one at a time and see what you get (the first will be easier since the second is a French word so many will come back as definitions, etc). That is what I would do for myself so you can too.

Run Malwarebytes to check if it is an infection/malware and needs to be removed that way.

What does this have to do with Hardware? You posted this to the hardware forum...

It's under the hardware section because that's all that I could put it in. Also bonjour as in a program on the computer not a french word!

✔ Best Answer

Bonjour is part of iTunes. It lets your Apple device interact with other devices on your computer such as printers, etc. If you have an Apple device connected to your computer such as an iPod, iPad, iPhone, etc, keep it.

PS. Bonjour is a French word, it's a greeting. Fingers was trying to explain to you that you may have a problem Googling it since it would come back as more of a definition of the word and not what the program does.

esobi2 seems to be suspicious.

You don't need to actually download malware anymore. Crooks do it sometimes without you doing much. Simple click in wrong place is all it takes.


Be sure to have a good security suite running.

Esobi (v2) is a news reader & aggregator - been around for years & it comes preinstalled on some brands of PC. Nothing nefarious about it, google Esobi & you'll find the company details.

Howerever, bad programs can hide as real ones. Many posts on that program as being a virus.

What was posted was esobi2 and not esobi (v2) or esobi.

Yes, but judging by the quality of posters these days I think the '( )' keys possible elude them, & a quick Google of 'Esobi2' doesn't pull up anything particularly nefarious - yes a lot of foreign links, but nothing substantiated. Together with the fact that ESobi is one of those programs that some manufacturers do install by default then even I would suspect that the OP does have a legitimate program they are querying, and to immediately suspect it my be the wrong thing to do (I actually do use ESobi occasionally as it is a useful aggregator).

Thanks all of you. I deleted esobi since it's only a news program thing that lets you read news, but I just go on the internet and look anyway, but I kept bonjour I have an ipod and don't want to risk it not working anymore or anything! So thanks to all
