Go to Network Connections, right-click on the connection icons and click Properties. There re 2 boxes at the bottom of the Properties window - untick the Notify me... box. If you don't need the icon, untick both boxes.
Thanks ADE.H and Felix. I think I'm getting there. I did it once but it wouldn't recognize my AOL so I used ROXIO GO_BACK and did what seemed to be exactly the same and now it appears to work. Thanks for your help. BELSOX+
