    Is there any system vulnerability between OS startup and firewall startup lag time with a computer system always connected to the internet? It seems there is about a 5 to 10 second delay between the two and I'm wondering what happens during this time period.

    There is a certain risk. People with ZA however will be proteted right from when the computer starts up. ZA's True Vector Engine starts up as a service and therefore is initiated even at the welcome/boot screen, ahead of the other processes. The true Vector Engine will stop all incoming and outgoing traffic until the GUI of ZA starts.

    Thank-you. I'll sleep well tonight. ZA is an amazing firewall system.

    Is this some kind of thread-posting advertising?

    Actually, true of all the major firewalls :)
