Protecting the windows start-up phase

Comodo firewalls icon comes up as the latest one in system tray.
How do you want to ensure system integrity while invoking comodo firewall
not until all other applications / processes are started ?

The icon is only for the GUI not the firewall itself. The low level drivers gets loaded at system start and the helper service is started before logon.

Comodo is loaded into Windows shell long before your at your desktop. ZA and OA also are last to load so Comodo isnt the only firewall. Outpost also.

Download process explorer from:

When running the program, select:
Select Columns…
Process Performance Tab
Check Start Time
Click OK

Now you will be able to see the time at which each process on your computer starts.
