How to know?

- Try to open a website with a harmful script :D
- Or visit one of the many trusted sites that check your defenses.
- Or just trust avast.
- Or decompile the code and look at it.
- Or.... (many other ways to check)

Why the question?
Is there something that make you doubt it is not working?

Web Shield is much lower than FileSystemShield. But it was reversed in previous version when Script Shield was available.

Can you provide some websites as you described to check that?

Thanks.

I have noticed that script shield has been frequently scanning "A script started by [Firefox]."
