    there was a thread here a while ago that listed nearly all the free tests:
    here's my list:
    http://bcheck.scanit.be/bcheck/
    http://www.pcflank.com/about.htm
    http://www.firewallleaktester.com/reward.htm
    http://www.jasons-toolbox.com/BrowserSecurity/
    http://scan.sygate.com/
    http://www.grc.com/default.http
    http://www.dslreports.com/scan
    http://www.auditmypc.com/
    http://www.preventon.com/scanner/en/
    http://www.hackerwhacker.com/
    http://gemal.dk/browserspy/
    http://www.alken.nl/online-security-check.htm Links to many test sites

    I haven't been to any of these for a while: might need to -hmm- check veracity.
    Some of these may be defunct or "changed" or offer different stuff since i was last there.

    This was an article from extremeTech with a lot of tests:

    You could also try the GFI email vulnerabilities tests where they email you around 18 test exploits.

    LoneWolf,
    You switched from Sandboxie to Defensewall to GeSWall. I see that you're liking the concept of sandboxes so far.

    Yes I do.
    Sandboxie worked great,DefenseWall would not work right on my system.
    I'm liking GeSWall so far.
    I'll go back to Sandboxie if GeSWall does not work out and if I can not get DW to work.
    Any other good one's out there?

    My experience with this: it is a highly effective and often overlooked tool

    They offer a $$ bounty if you can break it. :D
    Not sure that would be very productive for your system ;) , could try in a vm ?

    I am hopeful that Nic's testing against Various sandboxes will go ahead.
    http://membres.lycos.fr/nicmtests/Unhookers/unhooking_tests.htm

    The last credible test I saw was at AV-C
    http://www.av-comparatives.org/index.html?http://www.av-comparatives.org/seiten/comparatives.html

    Down the page: Comparison of various Protection tools.
    Nic's tools might undo some of that!

    Hey mods: :)
    PS: is there any reason not to have a sticky some where where all these baseline test sites could be listed and added to or revised as time goes by ??
