Was me, I'd use WinPatrol and move everything to the delayed start section, then set the start time to the order you choose. I start my AV first then my Firewall second this way

Or you can use Startup Delayer for that purpose only. WinPatrol is a multi-functional program.

By that purpose only, I meant moving everything to the delayed start section.

I already used winpatrol for that purpose, but you cant reorder the services.

It would be nice if you could force the service to run before the updatecheckers, in that way you prevent a delay due to the fact that these programs wait for responce from a site.

If you have windows vista/7 or server 2008, you can set services to start using: automatic (delayed start).

More info:
Delayed-Autostart Services
If you've ever logged onto a Windows system immediately after it starts, you've probably experienced delays before your desktop is fully configured and you can interact with the shell and any applications you launch. While you're logging on, the Service Control Manager is starting the many Windows services that are configured as automatic start services and therefore activate at boot time. Many services perform CPU and disk-intensive initializations that compete with your logon activities. To accommodate this, Windows Vista introduces a new service start type called delayed automatic start, which services can use if they don't have to be active immediately after Windows boots.
The Service Control Manager starts services configured for delayed automatic start after the automatic-start services have finished starting and it sets the priority of their initial thread to THREAD_PRIORITY_LOWEST. This priority level causes all the disk I/O the thread performs to be Very Low I/O priority. After a service finishes initializing, the Service Control Manager sets its priority to normal. The combination of the delayed start, low CPU and memory priority, and background disk priority greatly reduce interference with a user's logon. Many Windows services, including Background Intelligent Transfer, Windows Update Client, and Windows Media® Center, use the new start type to help improve the performance of logons after a boot.
