Is there any photo editing software that does NOT require an internet connection to install and run?  I don't need on-line tutorials.  I'm trying to install PSP X5 Ultimate and I keep getting an error message that tells me I need an internet connection.  Corel tech support is working on the problem--I should be getting a phone-in registration message but I'm not.

I don't want my photo editing PC subjected to viruses and/or "root kits" so I keep it off-line.  Yes I'm on Windows--XP with SP3 installed.

Does Capture NX 2 need an internet connection to install and run?  When I use "Ask Nikon" I get a response that's a link to the demo software which I doubt would be as secure as the retail version.

How about Lightroom?  Does it require the internet?

I know software piracy is an issue but I want to keep my PC and the 8 years of photos virus-free.

wow, stop watching apple commercials

Internet is not that scary of place, viruses don't just enter your pc
