www.grc.com I had offered to write a walk through on how to use the services provided on that site but honestly I can't write them any better or clearer than Steve provides himself. DCOMbobulator, Shoot the messenger, Unplugnplay, are all software I would highly suggest anyone look into. As far as services provided there I suggest making use of or at the least taking the time to read through everything that he presents. Some of the more techie types will start off thinking 'Ya I know this' to find out that there's details he presents that you might have forgotten or simply didn't know. The NewsGroup Discussions are a treasure trove in and of themselves. ShieldsUP is a very detailed service. If you don't get a result of Perfect TruStealth you can click on the boxes that are not green to get a walk through on how to fix that problem. All of which I've just suggested are completely free. There are a couple of things on there that there is a fee for however for security purposes they are not needed. If you question his knowledge he even has his resume there for you to take a look at.
