Pretty cool, I only had two small problems that I don't really care about. :) Neat test though, and kinda fun to watch it go.

Having 2 "high" priority security problems is not good. What did it recommend you do about them?

Civ, for my 2 "high", it recommended "windows update", for myy 2 "med" it says i can disable Java.

Problem is i have updated windows and that included I.E. service packs. I wonder if it has anything to do w/ me using my Yahoo browser.......?

Microsoft just released another security update. You might want to go to their site just to make sure you are totally up-to-date. What version of Windows are you using?

With my IE 6 I had one high and two mediums.

For the high risk, it said there was no patch to fix it. Then I checked the windows updates and the patch to fix it was sitting right there.

I just did my windows update before i ran this test. I am using XP.

Just double checked, no updates available.....so my update must have worked. I ran the test again, had the same security alerts, but this time my browser crashed, so i sent in a bug report to Yahoo. I might try to D/L Opera and see if it makes a difference.
