Xbox.com not wanted.
My PC is quite new but I have AVG installed and have noticed that almost all of my internet apps are trying to listen to xbox.com. Is there a way to turn this off? I have added it to my hosts file to send it back to localhost but I feel that there must be a service or something that I can turn off to stop this happening at all.
I don't have an Xbox, nor do I want one. I also do not play games other than online F2P games. Not only does this take up bandwidth but I feel it is intrusive since I have nothing that needs to speak to the site.
The only time I need to use a Live ID is for Outlook where I use a Hotmail address as my standard address, that is handled by the Live Id Sign In Assistant in services and I now have it on Manual rather than the default automatic.
