I have noticed that when I start up my computer the wireless connection to the internet starts almost at once. This is before Speed Startup begins to run and worryingly before my anti-virus (AVG) or firewall (Zone Alarm) initiates. Does this present a possible security threat? Regards, Wychwar.

worry not. The time period involved is totally insignificant. Viruses and Trojans are generally acquired through e-mails and websites, neither of which will be applicable during this phase.
