ZeroConf error: Couldn’t get bonjour version [sys_bonjour.cpp(1725)]

Sometimes after my computer has been turned on long enough I am no longer able to open up C4D. It gets stuck on: "loading plugins" and when I run c4d with the argument "g_console=true" I get this output:

ZeroConf error: Couldn't get bonjour version [sys_bonjour.cpp(1725)]

Any idea on how to fix this without restarting the computer? It usually works after restarting. I'm not sure if it's related to a specific plugin given where it's getting stuck, but I'm not sure. Any ideas on how to debug this?
