on a general note

http://mywebpages.comcast.net/winhelp2002/hosts.txt


is an occasionally updated lists of these irritating little locations. Adding 
these to your hosts file or if you have control over your own dns pointing 
them somwhere else , (in most cases.....  some operating systems offer a 
choice as to what order name resolution is performed from which naming 
services), will prevent an outbound call in many circumstances. Obviously if 
the misbegotten toerags who write these apps have hardcoded the ip or use 
system calls that bypass the hosts files you are stuffed. But it is a 
interesting little look at some of the current players in this market.
