Forums: Index > Watercooler > "Searching for downloadable content" at startup?

Does anyone know if there's a way (command-line game start or something) to disable the "Searching for Downloadable Content" at game startup?  It takes forever for it to give up or do whatever it's doing before I can actually play the game.  It's so annoying that I never exit the game, I just ALT+TAB out of the game and leave it running... don't even turn the computer off at night.  Thanks for any help here.
