check your browser settings ..
nope, my set works just fine without a connection to the web.
if u click on the www (web?) icon it's gonna look for a connection, though.
it could also be the set-up of your browser, as the CD set requires IE (or your default browser) to start up before it can load the Adobe viewer. If u have your browser set up to connect to the web once it starts up that will also mess u around.
In IE5 u can select 'work offline' on the file menu to stop the web connection once u start the MB CD. In Opera there is a similar setting for offline working - Netscape has it too ...
hope it helps
