    Default bootup

    Recently I actually sat though my computer's bootup process and noticed for the first time that my "**bleep**" antivirus started to download it's daily update before ZoneAlarm booted up. I found this to be somewhat alarming because I dont want any of my programs to access the web before my firewall wakes up. Is thre a way to alter the starting order of my programs so that ZA is the first program to wake up?WARNING!! I am a very slow typer.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Hi!
    actually ZA firewall driver starts even before you log in.
    What you see starting late is the GUI and not the firewall.

    So, your antivirus is allowed to run and connect because there are rules in the program control to allow it.
    Other unknown or blocked programs will not be able to access the internet.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
