I normaly start the Sky broadband connection manually after the Norton Internet Security kicks in, However today when I booted up the pc ,the Sky Broadband connection started automatically before the Norton Internet Security kicked in !
is there a way to prevent this occuring in future?
I use Netgear Router with Ethernet connection to the pc.
The router & my pc are both connected to the same electricity multi-plug socket. So when I switch the electrical power on, the router is switched-on but my pc is not booted-up. So there is no logical broadband connection to the pc.
After I boot-up the pc successfully & Internet security is enabled, only then I enable the brodabnd connection manually. When I have finished with the broadband, I disable the broadband connection & shutdown the pc or leave it on for non-internet work.
