What's your Security Score ???
This little tool analyzes how up to date winxp is (but it's also a way to advertise their tool PreEmpt (previous: QwickFix).
I started with a score of 38% (F - E - F). There were a lot of patches I was missing, so, 21 patches later and PreEmpt installed, I received a much better score of 70 (A - B - B). But the second B should be an A, because it says Avast isn't running, while it is running (except IM and Network shield, but the first doesn't work with Mercury and the second is pretty useless since I have a firewall installed). And the third B isn't correct either, because it says I need a patch, but that's one for DirectX 9a and I already have 9c, and then some other SP2 only patches.
//edit: didn't include the firewall test tough, because I'm behind a router, so the results are useless.

first run: 65%
F because I did not install their software
B- because I don't run a firewall on a system in my LAN
