Start up browser (FireFox etc) first on reboot and how.

,,,novice on windows.

Ive tried google but doesn't help, maybe steps for older versions of windows.

I an running windows xp and would like FireFox to load instantly.

As I said in your previous thread, rizlo29,

Put a Firefox shortcut in the Startup folder.

Start up seems to work very well when I log off (it finds FireFox at the drop of a hat) but when I reboot the PC, it goes back to normal and takes a few minutes to bring up FireFox browser???

I want FireFox to be up first!!!

any ideas?

.... surely you would want your AV software to load before your browser?

Other processes and services have to load before programs. When you log off from your profile, those processes and services are still active, that's why FF loads instantly when you log on again. When you reboot your PC from shutdown, everything has to start again from the beginning.
