Hi all, I'd like to know if it's possible to ensure that anti-virus and firewall programs start before the internet connection. I've noticed that my wireless connection is on well before my protection, I'd say anywhere between 15 to 30 seconds before.

Internet connectity is the last thing to come online when the system boots.

Been that way since XP and every 3d-party firewall I've used works that way.
