Browser Scans

This page will give you some other sites where you can test the security level of your browser, in relation to known exploits in IE--yes, I know, the page cold probably be 100 links to cover all the exploits. Most will indeed offer solutions and fixes for the tests that are not deemed as secure.


Multiple levels of security available here, several tests, port scans, and lots of others, too many to list, check it out!

Scanit Browser Security Test

Scan it's Browser Security Test automatically checks your browser for various security problems. When the test is finished you get a complete report explaining the discovered vulnerabilities, their impact and how to eliminate them.


Security and spyware site, checks for all sorts of vulnerabilities. Two separate tests here, very helpful.

  Browser Spy

BrowserSpy can tell you all kinds of detailed information about you and your browser. Stuff like the version of your browser. What kind of things it supports and what it doesn't support. Furthermore it can provide you detailed information about JavaScript, Java, Plug-ins, Components, Bandwidth, Language, Screen, Hardware, IP, Cookies, Web Server, and much more.

PC Pitstop

Automated tests will get your PC running fast, stable and secure for free. The diagnostic tests are safe, passive evaluations of your system, and the advice will help you locate and fix system problems. Whether you are a guru or a novice, our tests can quickly determine your PC's operating status. Excellent site!

Panicware Free PopupStoper

This is another excellent popup stopper, I use this, along with Google bar, and I get, quite literally, maybe one popup break thru a month, maybe. Free with an option to 'allow' the occasional one you want. Just hit Ctrl button as you click.

Google Toolbar w\popup stopper

The Google Bar is one of the better popup blockers available. As an added plus, it includes the feature to use their search engine, Google, the best out there. Just be sure and reset the default settings, so it doesn't report anything back to Google.

Popup Killer Test Site

Go to this site, and see how your popup killer checks out. Very good site.

Hosts File Prevent Some Popups

You can use a HOSTS file to block ads, banners, cookies, web bugs, and even most hijackers. This is accomplished by blocking the Server that supplies these little gems. Example - the following entry ad.doubleclick.net blocks all files supplied by the DoubleClick Server to the web page you are viewing. This also prevents the server from tracking your movements.
