I'd rather not create yet another rule in the firewall, there must be a way to turn this phoning home off - how can I tell what is initiating the connection and how do I stop it?  I've looked through a few programs and turned off their update checks etc. but cannot find it.

On a hunch I uninstalled "Roxio Creator DE" (came free with laptop).  The next day (it only seemed to do it on the first boot of the day), no connections to *.*.llnw.net.

Think it's time for some proper burning software - Nero.
