VoG has suggested opening a command prompt window and type in a program. How do I open a command prompt window? Sorry I am a bit thick.

Since the lastest MS update (genuine check) I have the opposite problem, my modem connects to BB as soon as I log on often before firewall and AV have started.

Perhaps all you need to do is update windows.
