    PCAudit will test your firewall for outgoing events. And check for leaks - This is a very thorough program. Check it and see ...

    Note ** Your antivirus may come back as this being spyware. It is normal, This is the same way with all the tests programs. It only comes back as spyware because of the out going information. Nothing is saved on any computer and you have the option to delete it. I ran this with my antivirus and it came back clean (evast, and McAfee Enterprise came back clean also), norton seems to think this is spyware. Then norton sux so that could be the reason.

    I ran this with McAfee Personal Firewall Plus and it failed misrably. See if what you are using fails also ...

    Program is attached:

    This is just a come on to get you to buy their product. When you are clicking continue you are giving permission for it to open ports so it will always come back with info on you.

    I think I would rather depend on Shields Up! or some other test.
