    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:

    Let us know how you go

    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 ??
