Is there a way to select the order of start up apps?
Or does it matter?

I want the firewall (Kerio) to start first so nothing sneaks out.

Any ideas?

thanks

If you are using XP then simply turn the firewall on and it's always on. If
you have SP2 installed then the firewall is even more configurable. Go into
the security center in your control panel to set the options you want. There
is no need to waste your money on a third party firewall. The one in XP was
designed for XP and so works very well. As far as what apps start first it
really doesn't matter all that much as there is mere microseconds between
initiations of apps on the startup list. {]:~)

Hi stratman,

Doesn't really matter which order they start in as far as the user is
concerned. As for the programs themselves, many have certain dependencies,
so the program writers set them to start after those dependencies are
loaded. It is suggested that you not tamper with it.

If you have a real need to do this, then disable the programs altogether
from loading (via msconfig or from within the program's own options), then
create a batch file of your own that loads them in order and place it here:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

You (STILL!) never have learned to reply with the previous post still in your message bodies. Very ineffective, if you're trying to give help, since no-one can figure out WTF you're on about!

Well, you obviously CANNOT read! I didn't plonk you, and this would be obvious since I CLEARLY see your post. You are "Unknown", whereas I plonked "The Unknown P". Read down the headers, and see "Ps" post. Also, TUP uses the worthless web based reader, hwereas you use OE.l
Chill out, and read carefully man!

Sometimes the original post is not shown, for whatever reason. How do you
scroll down to it then??? ;-)

Sorry about that, but the original post was not shown on my computer but the
response from 'The UnknownP' was and it contained the original post. So that
leaves me totally confused as to why you criticise him for not quoting the OP.
