Step 1 - System check

To help maintain your online protection and improve your browsing experience, the system check is a St.George tool which will perform a diagnosis of your system settings. The check will be performed based on:

  • Your version of browser and operating system
  • Your JavaScript, screen resolution and cookie settings

Please note: St.George will not compromise privacy or retain any record of your data during the system check.

Before performing the System check please clear cache and cookies, we recommend you clear your cookie and cache on a regular basis.
