    as title.

    would the svchost.exe run before kerio service?

    and other products?(outpost or LnS)

    I only know the sygate personal firewall pro has an option "block all traffic while the sevice is not running"

    The question is not very clear .

    Anyway , kerio 2.1.5 does not have any option of "block all traffic while the sevice is not running".

    If you could let know the exact problems you are facing with kerio then maybe someone could be more helpful.

    It is an option but it is not added to the registry by default and cannot
    be selected using the GUI. You can add the following:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\fwdrv]
    "AlwaysSecure"=dword:00000001


    I think when you add the above to the registry that you will not get
    an IP address at boot from the DHCP server until kerio is loaded
    (no traffic at all will be permitted until Kerio loaded)...after
    Kerio is loaded then any rules that permit DHCP will allow it. If you don't add the above
    (normal configuration) then DHCP will be permitted irregardless of kerio
    rules, since DHCP stuff is done before firewall loaded. This
    AlwaysSecure mode can cause side effects
    see http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,7309170~root=kerio~mode=flat
    http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,11299132~mode=flat
    so if you use it you should always
    keep a current backup of your rules handy in case they are lost.
    Is this what you mean?

    Kerio 4.2 also has this option if you care to use it instead of 2.1.5...

    I am running a win2k OS, not any service pack installed. so I want to some firewall can resist some worm or attach. such as the well-known Worm.Blaster.
