Programmes requesting interent connection

  chesterfield 16:59 16 Apr 2003

When I play games such as Raven Shield that have an online, multiplayer option, I often find that my PC will attempt to connect to the internt of it's own accord whilst Im playing the single player version. This often stops the smooth running of the game and is very annoying. A box usually appears saying that a programme Im running has requested that I connect to the internet and even though this window has a box to tick if you want to prevent this unsolicited connection from occuring again it keeps happening.

Any ideas how I can stop this?
