Have been doing some housekeeping on my PC to try and gain some hard drive space and came across a program called "Bonjour". This is not a program I have installed on my computer and have no idea where it came from.

Any ideas anyone?

Most likely this program was installed with an Apple program such as iTunes.
Bonjour Service is an Apple networking service. You can read about Bonjour for Windows here:

This program has caused me problems with a 2000 Pro laptop by eating up memory. I think it is causing me the same problem with my pc with XP Home. I added memory, but after a few hours, my pc bogs down. When I reboot, everything is alright for a while.

I am not sure if this is the cause, but, if it is, you can't delete it. Or at least not easily.

In that case, is it safe to delete Bonjour?

Yes, it is safe to uninstall.
