I think it is all scare tacticks to get you to splash out on more useless stuff. What can they do with the information they collect.....if they do? Behave yourself when online & you have nothing to be concerned about. O no they know I live in Melbourne. :rolleyes:

OOH, I'm scared...



Scared that my PC may not be configured properly if the site gave me the wrong info back.


Right IP Address..
No cookies (although I should have: logged into MSN, NTFS.org, NeoWin.net, and Warp2search)
Empty Clipboard (Evensaid this when tested it by copying a few text strings)
Browser + OS test failed, couldnt distinguish my info
Geographical location didnt even load
Network info screwed.

All I'm using is WinXP firewall. Damn I'm secure :p :D

Nah, seriously, it's just scare tactics, My university programming project performs better than their so-called 'tests', and even then it's running on test machines with no security.


Just make sure you have a firewall (software, or hardware), even then, this is not needed unless you are on broadband, and/or download anything off filesharing networks.

Your IP address is accessible by websites, otherwise you couldnt connect to the www, as any requests sent by your pc would be void, as they would have no originating address to reply to, although if you have a firewall configured correctly, no port-scan, will show a computer currently at that address.
