    Well,hard to beleive that this excellent fw does´nt pass PC Flank´s test...I´m using phantom´s ruleset and was astonished that LnS failed...Probably a config matter or....?Tnx in advance for proper advice....

    Hi,

    Are you talking about the online scan test ?

    If you are, did you check if the IP displayed by PCFlank at the beginning of the test is the same as the one displayed by Look 'n' Stop in the Welcome page ?
    If they are not the same, PCFlank is testing another machine.

    Regards,

    Frederic

    Ok,I red the thread but nevertheless don´t know how to react on the failing:rubbish or not...? I mean when deleting IE in LnS apps the test still demands to open up IE for the test to go through, no matter if you use, for instance, firefox as the default browser...So,how come that Comodo does´nt fail but LnS does...?I feel that this question is essential for keeping LnS:s reputation towards its competitors...

    Well, this is just another example, why you should use IE for Windows Updates only.
    You can permanently block IE and use one of the alternative browsers instead!

    LnS is just one piece for security ;)

    yeah,that´s allright ok...But,in some cases when for instance you use a certain bank certificate procedure and firefox is´nt acceptable-only IE ,then you still have a problem...If my sentence in the linktester leaks and is readable,can I rely on IE:s secure sites or not...that´s what I´m wondering about....
