I went into preferences and unchecked the box that said it would open upon internet connection. It did not stop it. Rebooted twice the box is still unchecked and the thing still opens up. I did get a new version (not by choice) today when a larger version turned up on my desktop when I rebooted at 10 am. It was not there when I booted up at 8:30, so it must be just a coincidence than they came out with a new version during that 90 minute time frame.
