System Scanner – is a site which gives you every possible piece of information about your system. This can be something as simple as your IP address, to more complex stats such as hardware, network and broadband speeds. However, some features are browser-specific.

      System Scanner probably triggers your web filter because the scanning of your computer has characteristics of malware. It could be a pattern based recognition that doesn't necessarily mean it really is malware; it might just be a false positive. Or the domain was affected in the past and remains listed by the web filter. They do re-direct to third party URLs that were flagged as malware or malicious sites (e.g. BitDefender and Sophos), see Virus Total scan analysis; that's another potential trigger. Other than that Virus Total doesn't find any threats.

    System Scanner is IE-centric. Since I use FireFox I got "You browser does not support this function" for about half the boxes. I wonder if it's not a gimmick to just gather data for some nefarious purpose.

    I came across Dollar Shave Club a while back, when it was only a US service. Since then they set up shop in Australia and I joined up. The 4 blade razors produce an oh so smooth shave and at $9.99 a month (for 4 heads) its definitely worth it.
