like Windows Media Player, will attempt to search the internet for track and DRM information.
Perhaps you could search the Tools > Options of the apps you use.
I have a very annoying pop up.
No connection to the internet is currently available."
The problem is I know there is no internet connection this particular computer is an audio workstation, therefore I don't have and don't want internet connectivity. I've had Windows XP with SP 2 on a previous DAW and this annoyance never happened. I've searched and tried all the fixes suggested, I've disabled most services, anything and everything connected with the internet and networking has either been disabled or uninstalled. I've tried the fixes suggested in changing the registry entries. I'm frustrated, when using some audio applications, while recording the popup causes interruptions, actually stops the app. Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated.
