Unfortunately not.

All options are unchecked. I've tried turning each of them on in turn as well, to no avail.

No problem.
I attached the screenshot. Steam generates an error saying it can't connect to the server and tell me to connect to the internet before trying again. When I try to run a Java or Adobe update, I get a similar error.
