Hi kb001100.

Welcome to the forums.

Catching what things?  What did it miss?  Not enough detail to ascertain what your true issue is.  Could you provide that missing detail?  Specific examples will help.

If you need to attach a picture, see attached below on how to do that.

Note:  GRC leaktest is old, dating from XP.   
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 22H2 Microsoft Windows Defender - Windows 11 Home 23H2 - Windows 11 Pro 23H2 Avast Premier Security version 24.4.6112 (build 24.4.9067.762) UI version 1.0.803

Thanks for reply, yes this is old used it for years, the firewall seems to alert me of every other app that asks for internet connection, but avast firewall seems to allow this old app access without asking for any permissions , any ideas as to why, how every this app is accessing the outside world could an unwanted software just use the same route ?
