Hi All,

I have a strange problem with Mathematica (student edition) on
Windows2000-- not a network edition.  I've had it installed on my
laptop with no problem (that I've noticed) for some time now.  The
other day, I was on a plane and wanted to do some work with it, and it
wouldn't start up at all.  When I started it, the splash screen came
up and then everything disappeared.  If I double clicked on a .nb
file, the same thing.

Back at the office, no problem.  At home - no problem.  As it turns
out, at home and office, I'm plugged into a LAN.  As long as I'm
plugged in, it starts up just fine...

Apparently, Mathematica is checking to see if I'm on a network, even
thought it's not using the network for anything (that I know of!). 
Any thoughts?
