Default How does wintasks website find info bout your machine?

http://www.liutilities.com/products/.../cp2/wintasks/

There's no reference made to installing an activex object, or running java/jacascript applet or even port scanning your machine. How are they determining the security of my machine?

If you really want to know how safe your PC is on the internet check out GRC . Just click porceed and try the various tests. It will then proceed to test your settings and how open you are to the internet and attacks.

I have the same settings myself. I found this site a long time ago. It has been the best test for my to see how much i am noticed online. I have had a few instances of detection. I was mainly using dial up with no firewall or anything at that time. Ahh to be young and dumb. But since i have gotten cable this has been a godsend. If you go to the home page the gentleman who wrote this actually has more self test you can do.
