I have set the icon "Local area Connection"-a network cable is unplugged to
"always hide"-
I do not have a local network set up.
The icon keeps appearing on startup.
Why is this and can I prevent it from happening?
Thanks

Go into Device manager and disable your network card (NIC). Right click My
My Network Places. Left Click properties. Right click the Local Area
Connection for your network card (under Device Name) and then left click on
disable. Answer any questions about removing from bridge, etc. and you
should not have the notification anymore.

Enter your BIOS (setup) on boot , go to your "Peripherals" screen and
disable your onboard LAN. Will solve everything.

Depending on motherboard, disabling a LAN IN windows does not *always*
keep the LAN from showing in the system tray. Disable it in BIOS, and
windows doesn't even know it's there.
