Broadband services usually log to connect when the computer starts up as well do firewalls. Question: Which came first... 1. The firewall loads and is protecting your computer BEFORE your computer goes online. 2. Your computer goes online unprotected before your firewall has time to load and kick in. Is there a way to know for sure which of these usually occur if both the firewall and a broadband's service auto-connect loads on startup? Idea: An option to list and autostart programs AFTER the firewall is fully loaded and protecting your computer. Users can specify what programs they would like to have start up after the firewall loads if they use a broadband service.
