Office & Media Player accessing internet

Why is it that every time they start, each office program and windows media player (among others) request internet access? What are they looking for, what are they uploading / downloading?

Should I just block all access via firewall, or is there some compelling reason for me letting them access the internet?!

Hi Scott!

Don't know about 'Office' but to stop WMP from accessing the net goto Tools>Options>Media Library> the bottom box, uncheck 'Update my library files'.

Hope this helps, Toxin.
