I am getting the following message at startup: (see attachement)
How do I avoid getting this message?

I was too until today. That was generated when you loaded Roxio 2011 I think. you were asked whether you wanted to sign in as a "host" or a "client." I believe the message was intended for home networks (mine, through a series of bad breaks and misunderstandings), still hasn't been completed. I have all the hardware from Cisco-Linksys to do it and the modem works great. My Internet connection, however is through Comcast, and for that, I have to work out some kind of arrangement with Comcast. I also need to find a way to get Cisco-Linksys to communicate with me. I have given them an address and set up a password, but they're still slamming doors in my face when I try to talk to them.
I think your answer in a nutshell, would be to find your startup manager, then find and uncheck the box that calls for it. Of course that would cripple any efforts you made at streaming anything anywhere, but apparantly you don't want to anyhow. Another option might be to go into your Control Panel and just uninstall the program.
My own solution, thus far, has been to "grit my teeth and put up with it." Windows 7 will do a lot of that stuff... the days when you could tell your computer what do do and expect an honest effort at compliance vanished with [dos v6.22/Windows v3.1].
