Just noticed this today, that when you enter the .NET discussion group, the icon in the browser address bar switches from the (e)xplorer logo to the Autodesk logo. Just an observation.

Have you read your license lately? The part that claims they can enter your
computer (network) electronically? That's usually called spyware using a
backdoor.

It happens not just in the .NET discussion group, but other AutoCAD forums too. It's due to the harmless "Favicon.ico" feature built into IE which sites can use to personalize the appearance of their bookmarks. Here's some more info about it:

Edit: FireFox has the same feature too.
