At the moment I've got it setup so it doesn't require the password and 
it auto starts at login.  If there is no way to delay the firewall from 
starting up or configuring it to ignore that particular error, then I 
will just have to press an OK button each time I login.  Not a big deal, 
but there may be a workaround.
