Computer Icon in task bar

This icon appears briefly but recently it has stayed lng enough for me to point at it, and the message box that appears says somthing like "Unable to locate required server" people tel me that a program is trying to access the internet,As it has only started to happen over the last 3 months or so, and I have never had this machine connected to the internet, how can I identify what is causing this to happen when at best it occurs for 3-5 seconds and is sporadic?

Think what program you may have installed about 3 months ago. It is probably a program looking for updates or similar. They all seem to assume an internet connection nowadays.

Thanks VoG, you agree it's a prog trying to phone home. Thing is I've not installed anything for about 8 months- maybe i've inadvertently
"switched one on" so to speak.Have to start trawling through each I suppose??
