AE -Connection failed- at startup, endless popup

I'm new here. Watched posts over the years, now it's time to interact. Hope you can help me out on this strange problem.
Machine: MP Quadcore, 16GbRAM, ATI Radeon HD 4870, and enough Tb for storage.
Software: AfterEffects CS4, trialversion
I also have a MBP, usually connected to the MP-QC, but which is turned off when this problem occurs.
When i startup AE i get this popup about 30 times in a row:
The server "MackBookPro" may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP adress, check your network connection, and then try again. '
AE works, but popup keeps popping up until it finally stops after 30 popups and clicking them away.
Does AE try to connect to a server? Why? I tried to look for any connection preferences in AE but did not find it.
What could be wrong?
Hope you can help out on this one.
Suggestions are greatly appreciated,
