You could go into IE, Tools, Internet options, Security, Restricted Sites, Sites then put in *.akamai.com and Add it to the Restricted List.
Another option is to go into the hosts file and add akamai.com to it with 127.0.0.1. They have made it hard to do in Win 7 but I think HostsXpert by FunkyToad makes it a lot easier.
What might work better at fooling it is a black hole proxy (homer is a good one) in conjunction with a PAC but that is not so easy to set up:
A black hole proxy lives on your PC and pretends to be a server. It will accept any connection but not let it do anything. You steer outgoing traffic to it by using the PAC.
Haven't used one in 10 years. I just used it to kill off ads back before we had AdBlockPlus but it could be configured to send all traffic to akamai to the black hole proxy.

This reminds me of another story. Once upon a time this country had a great president and we have not had one since. That President's name was Abraham Lincoln. So great, that he has had more books written about him than any other being to walk this planet except, Jesus. Great, because he uttered the words "Government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish." Now certainly this means that limited Government of/by and for the people will not even dream of invading the privacy of the people's bedrooms while they are engaged in the worship of God himself. Right? That worship consisting and limited to just the most private ritual worship using only that which is provided by God himself for His worship. Namely man, woman and pot. And definitely not the God worship using only God provided holy rituals, God provided substances and actions of God worship in the privacy of ones own bedroom of "all night sex on pot."
Maybe, if we had many fewer wing nuts in Washington, we would have a real effective government that actually did the true work of Government of/by and for, by addressing real society destroying things such as man made crack, speed and EULA.
Yes, EULA works just fine, after all it is doing its real job just fine, according to MS. Gates after all, is the richest man on the planet. Now if some voters would stop voting into office all these wing nuts and Government actually stopped using all its wing nut time invading the privacy of the people's bedrooms and the worship of God, Himself, maybe Government of/by and for could actually address what needs to be addressed, so that I can actually use my computer as I chose. Who are these voters anyway. Don't they know what they are doing? Another quote "God forgive them for they do not know what they are doing." Any suggestions, Ron, on how to keep my "clean" computer functioning?

The warning is for Smart Tags which are not a virus threat.
Go to Tools/Macro/Security and turn on "Trust all installed add-ins
and templates". This will allow you to trust the add-in but keep your
security level set to High.
If you wish to disable the Smart Tags then in Word go to
Tools/AutoCorrect Options and turn them off.

Did it tell you that it had expired before or after you connected to the internet?
If after then you probably need to call them:
If before then go into the BIOS and set the clock for back before Xmas. See if it still thinks it is expired.

I never connected to the net nor changed any time during or after the load.
I did, however see that Win did let me actually see "autorun.inf" and "autoruns.inf" that I had placed as a test. So Win has the ability to hide and show files when it chooses, just like it can make a shortcut to a shortcut and then lose it.
