Visual Studio EXE tries to connect to Microsoft site

When I compile a Visual Studio project into an EXE and run it, it tries to connect to the microsoft site. I get a firewall message for confirmation.

Why does the EXE try to connect to microsoft website and how can I turn off this behaviour?

The project is in C# in Visual Studio 2005.
