    Hi, can anyone help me with this irritating problem? I have Winds XP
    and IE6. Whenever I am using programs such as MS Publisher, MS Word,
    Frontpage, etc. and I go to insert an image from a folder in "My
    Documents", as soon as the dialog box appears and I go to My Documents
    to go find the folder with my image my computer decides to suddenly go
    online when I don't want it to do so, and this seems to slow
    everything up and I cannot do anything more until connected. Do you
    know of any way of stopping this occuring? I also have WinXP and IE6
    on laptop where I don't have this problem and nothing is configured
    differently. Sorry if this has been covered before. Many thanks
    Denise.

    Get a firewall, like zone alarm, and you can tell it which programs are
    "allowed" to go online and which ones aren't.
