I have Windows XP on my computer. Can anyone tell me the easiest way to get to a URL box from the minute I turn on my computer? Thank you very much. Murrar

I don't believe it can be done...the network connection is one of the last, if not the last, items which receives protection from the firewall.

My experience is that nothing can be done with the system...until the firewall is properly set up and system defenses are in place.

AFAIK, the only exception to this occurs when doing an install of XP and the install procedure allows for setting up the network in order to get updates from Windows.
