ICQ comes with a little program, NetDetect, that will automatically launch ICQ and any other specified program as soon as it detects a connection to the internet. I really have no desire to have ICQ on my computer, but I do like the idea behind NetDetect. Is there a stand-alone program anywhere that can do the same or similar? Best would be if it were intelligent to shut down the launched programs when the internet connection gets broken. I'd like to be able to take my popup killer and firewall out of my Windows startup to only have them active when they are actually needed.
