TESTS

AWFT must score 10 (100%) with the Windows Firewall, but according to impartial results none of the popular firewalls passes all AWFT tests without some tweaking.
You must test within 32-bit Operating Systems with AWFT 32-bit and within 64-bit Operating Systems with AWFT 64-bit.

Tests:

One:
Attempts to load a copy of the default browser and patch it in memory before it executes. Defeats the weakest PFs.
Two:
Creates a thread on a loaded copy of the default browser. Old trick, but most firewalls still fail.
Three:
Creates a thread on Windows Explorer. Another old trick, but almost every firewall still fail.
Four:
Attempts to load a copy of the default browser from within Windows Explorer and patch it in memory before execution. Defeats PFs which require authorization for an application to load another one (succeeding on Technique 1) - Windows Explorer is normally authorized. This test usually succeeds, unless the default browser is blocked from accessing the Internet.
Five:
Performs an heuristic search for proxies and other running software authorized to access the Internet, loads a copy and patches it in memory before execution from within a thread on Windows Explorer. Very difficult test for PFWs!
Six:
Performs an heuristic search for proxies and other running software authorized to access the Internet, requests the user to select one of them, then creates a thread on the select process. Another difficult nut to crack for PFWs!
