I suppose it is genuine?
On all the checks, I got a clear 100%. Unbelievable enough to make me suspicious.??
It's not a browser check it's a firewall check and it's pretty much the standard and first one you ever run to test your ports are shut, I've been using it for years.
That is interesting. My Firewall is in my router, in default state. After reading your post, I disabled it, rebooted, and tried the program again. Got 100% clear??
Full stealth on all ports?
Thats right. Mystery to me.
On the File sharing:
Please Stand By. . .
Attempting connection to your computer. . .
Shields UP! is now attempting to contact the Hidden Internet Server within your PC. It is likely that no one has told you that your own personal computer may now be functioning as an Internet Server with neither your knowledge nor your permission. And that it may be serving up all or many of your personal files for reading, writing, modification and even deletion by anyone, anywhere, on the Internet!Your Internet port 139 does not appear to exist!
One or more ports on this system are operating in FULL STEALTH MODE! Standard Internet behavior requires port connection attempts to be answered with a success or refusal response. Therefore, only an attempt to connect to a nonexistent computer results in no response of either kind. But YOUR computer has DELIBERATELY CHOSEN NOT TO RESPOND (that's very cool!) which represents advanced computer and port stealthing capabilities. A machine configured in this fashion is well hardened to Internet NetBIOS attack and intrusion.Unable to connect with NetBIOS to your computer.
All attempts to get any information from your computer have FAILED. (This is very uncommon for a Windows networking-based PC.) Relative to vulnerabilities from Windows networking, this computer appears to be VERY SECURE since it is NOT exposing ANY of its internal NetBIOS networking protocol over the Internet.

+1 from me as well.
Some ISPs are blocking pings to ports on behalf of their customers. Still it is good to know that so one can take proper measures to close ports if needed.
GRC is an excellent source for those who wish to educate themselves!
Not used it for a while but got the full stealth mode when I last did, I'll have to give it another visit.
Just done a scan and as I thought completely stealthed, I don't exist :thumbs:
