The problem with that site as well as others is you end up seeing "Install personal firewall software. PC Flank recommends.... " at the end of the test. You want one that is strictly independent not one simply promoting some software.

It still shows the same results as the Shields Up! test for me and the other test I tried on there seem fairly objective, aside from recommending particular software of course.

The fact that everyone passed the test on each of those too easily is the thing that should be looked at there. A professional series of tests would reveal security holes in one form or another with recommendations not pointing to any one particular program. But then you are looking at what corporate security would use.

Viruses can't infect your computer if it won't run.

That's exactly what happened to me when I tried to go to McAfee Hacker Watch to test the firewall, I got an error every time.

Not that I would exactly trust their results, but nontheless I was curious.

And like Petey7 said, it's hard to find a place that doesn't want you to d/l their software in order to run the test

Thanx for the link A Guy, I'll give it a try later & see what it says.

Yeah, that would be nice to see Night Hawk, good luck with that though.

I am more of a Norton and Kaspersky fan. McAfee isn't in that list since it let me down several times.
