Windows 7: No Internet Connection on Startup

No Internet Connection on Startup

Hi guys, been having this problem for a while now. It seems every (or almost every) time I boot up and login, I get a message from ESET saying my computer is exposed to risk, that my firewall cannot be configured and a restart is needed and refuses to let me connect to the internet.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, changing learning modes, turning it off and trying to connect etc but the only thing that works is restarting my pc.

Any ideas why this might be happening/what I can to stop it?

DO you have windows firewall still on?, if you do and you have a firewall in ESET active they will conflict and cause you problems.
Try in the ESET user interface to stop various functions one at a time to see if that helps.

If you want you can remove eset and switch to microsoft security essentials.
It's not perfect but, it's a lot less likely to run into trouble.
