You can't say it is easy then put restrictions on not doing something!

More than likely you have an updater service that is trying to access the internet...The application will continue to do so till it is either shut down or allowed to proceed. There should have been some kind of message that a program was trying to access the internet...allow?....disallow?

It can also be malware and spyware trying to send your personal information back to who-ever.

First thing first. Run all your anti-virus and anti-malware/spyware programs and make sure that your system is clean. Then go online and download winpatrol (free).

Winpatrol is an application manager that watches your system. It will tell you that something is trying to access the internet and then will allow you to stop the service or delete it or just stop it from auto starting.
