My firewall always loads/activates last in the system tray and as a result my internet connection is totally unprotected until it loads. I even get a warning saying "warning ____firewall is turned off/disabled" that is until it's done finally loading. Has nothing to do with a virus I've done 5 full scans with 5 different programs and I'm clean. It's just the order and time it takes to load.

So I was wondering can I make my firewall, at boot up the first program to always load?

Hi -
This is my first time to hit the PrivateFirewall, so I am not yet sure on how it is configured in setup. New research, thanks for introducing it in the mix
Also I think your typo means XP SP3-
