    My pleasure. :) I like it too. Hey - I have a question... anyone know how to get Local Security Policy to run/work on Windows XP Home Edition? I tried copying files/registry settings but haven't gotten it to work yet. I at least get it to run but it doesn't have the options as Pro does. Any ideas or tips? Thanks lol.

    I remember that. <g> Hey... how come MS doesn't provide a GUI version of the Hotfix Security Checker thing? Command line is nice and all but GUI would be nicer in some ways. This of course isn't really a question for you - its for MS. <g>

    Does anyone have a copy of the final version of OptOut before it was pulled? I'd like a copy please. :) And yes, I have/use Ad-Aware also.

    OptOut is still available at GRC.com

    MS doesn't provide a graphical front end because they don't want people to laugh at MCSEs.......

    Grc.com's version is disabled. Try it. :)

    Hey, it's fun reading these old posts :)

    I ran this Shields Up! test. Here's what it said:

    Though I am running some personal servers over my Win2K machine, the probe port test came out quite positive:

    Even though it ain't foolproof, it's still a nice synthetic test. Never had the will to run IIS...
