After using Afterburner for years, I decided to try the new PX1.
 
I have it set to run at startup, but not check for updates. When I restart, and the splash screen comes up, PX1 tries to establish a connection (which I block, naturally).
 
So, why is it trying to phone home?

    You sure updates are still disabled?

    Want to save 5 to 10% on your next EVGA purchase? Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    Why worry about it? It's just looking to see if there is an update. It's not malicious.

    Yet, I had it set to never check for updates.
     
    Regardless of why it attempted the connection, it should not have.
