Annoying 'Hotspot Network' Notification

Recently I've been getting an irritating notification every few minutes. I took a screenshot, which you can see at http://i.imgur.com/cWdnkyc.png http://i.imgur.com/cWdnkyc.png

It appears in the bottom right of the desktop, as you can see from the taskbar and clock. It started around the time I installed something to let me access the wifi in the ATL airport, and while I suspect this is the cause, there is only one program listed as installed on that date, called 'Open It!' That doesn't seem like it would be the one to me.

I believe this is due to an Intel program or application, since the blue icon is identical to the one for Intel PROSet/Wireless Software, minus the unlocked yellow lock.

Can someone help me get rid of this? It's quite annoying, and I prefer to keep anything unnecessary off my computer.

Thank you!

Hello,

Please try opening Intel® Proset Wireless Connection Utility by searching for "WiFi Connection Utility" in the Windows* start menu or opening it from the taskbar (system tray).

With the window opened go to Tools, Application Settings. Then you may disable the notifications and click OK. I believe the one you need to uncheck is "Show Information Notifications".

I hope this helps.

It ended up being under the program Intel PROSet/Wireless Tools, but your suggestion did end up leading me to the right place. The notifications are gone.

Thank you!
