    Just a thought.
    If you go this route, Zonealarm can tell you what is accessing, with the option to allow or deny it access.

    AVG Free Edition is the virus scanner I use. Works well, and it can clean up viruses.

    i connected the carpc hard drive to my pc at my room and scaned it with
    notron antivirus...

    now everything works fine...

    So I know this is an old thread but I'm having the same issue. I think it's Garmin Mobile PC that is trying to contact the internet and causing the popup box, because it started happening about the time I switched from iGuidance to Mobile PC.

    What I am wondering is whether it is possible to prevent this "work offline" popup box even in the presence of applications that are trying to contact the internet? Any ideas please?

    Thanks
    mpr.

    manually configure a dial up connection, this is only so you can modify the internet options, the you can select never to dial a connection, after that's done you can delete the connection.
