As I recently fitted a new mobo and did a clean install, I decided to run the shields up checks again from the above site.

I use sygate personal firewall, AVG anti virus, spywareblaster and spybot.

On reinstall, I installed Shoot the messenger, & UnPnP from the above site, and have just used DCMbobulator to disable this windows function.

All the shields aup tests showed my computer as ultra secure which is very pleasing, and the sygate port scan log is packed which shows how well the firewall is doing its job.

sorry did not realise your link was to the Steve Gibson website until I decided to use it to test my firewall - nice work and a very useful site.
