Hi everyone. First post so be gentle and read my user name , it speaks millions,lol. ;)
Ok here we go and sorry if i have posted this in the wrong section.
I am using a new computer (acer veriton M series))and have only been running win7 for 2 weeks so i am still trying to find my way around !!.
After around a week or so i got a pop up window saying 'Acer has set your computer to automatically connect firefox and hotmail to the internet'.
At the time i thought ,ok thats cool. But........

How or where do i find the settings options so i can uncheck auto connect firefox/hotmail. I kinda remember seeing the check boxes on the window that popped up but i cant find it.
Sometimes my router dosnt connect to my server so i have to pull the plug. Therefore when i know i have a connection i then open my browser/mail. But now as you will have guessed Mr/Mrs Computer tries to connect even tho the plug is pulled !!.

All i want to do is open firefox/hotmail when i want to and not be controlled by computer :D .

Hopefully my technical wording makes sense and i look forward to some help from you guys/gals.

Oh yes,keep it simple please ;)
