When I sign on my Acer Aspire automatically attempts to access the 'net. ..everytime! ..more of an annoyance than anything. What can I do to stop this?

Have you checked Task Scheduler ?

More detail is needed regarding what you mean.

 

I would expect that any Windows 10 (and earlier, actually) machine would attempt to establish an internet connection at startup if for no other purpose than Windows Update.  This strikes me as perfectly normal behavior, not a problem.

What is not normal behavior?   "Automatically attempts to access the 'net," covers so much territory as to be impossible to say anything about normal or not.

 

There is not enough specificity in the original message to draw the conclusion you draw.  I have yet to see a Windows 10 machine that does not attempt to make an internet connection as part of its startup sequence.  Whether or not it succeeds is another question entirely.

Brian, I use many different Linux distributions and this is normal for every Linux OS as well.

I had various Windows 10 OS installed.

None attempted to connect to the internet on restart.

My answer was based on that.

From personal experience.

Every Windows since Windows 95 connects to the internet upon start up. The same can be said for every version of Linux as well. It is just a part of the operating system.

You might be having hardware issues if you do not automatically connect to the internet. Have you tried other operating systems on the same hard ware?

I poked around on the internet for you and the best indication is that you are having a hardware issue if your "SYSTEM" does not automatically connect to the internet upon start up. There are a lot of possible problems, but read this to get an idea of some of the hardware issues that you might be facing;

Indeed.  There has not been an operating system in decades that does not, by default, attempt to establish network connectivity if a profile for doing so exists on the machine.  I haven't had a version of Windows that I can remember that doesn't immediately establish a WiFi connection if a profile is present or a connection via ethernet if ethernet's plugged in.

 

Windows hasn't waited until one started a web browser, any web browser, to attempt to establish an internet connection for as long as I can remember.  I got my undergraduate degree in computer science when DOS was still king, so I've been around the block more times than I care to count.
