    Why are most of my emulators trying to connect to the internet?

    I use ZoneAlarm Pro and this problem has been around for some time.

    These emulators don't even have any online play ability so why they are giving Firewall alerts I don't know.

    Take a look at the screenshot.

    Of course, all of the executables come from their official webpages.
