When I go to GRC every thing stealth but answering a ping. Over the years I have used
4 different security brands and all of them let a ping in and out. Is there a way of stopping
that from happining and still be on line.

That really depends on your set-up and how your ISP is set-up.

Do you know for sure they are pinging you =router?, DSL\cable modem, actual PC or your ISP`s exit point?

Prior to running the test they display the IP they will be pinging. If you know the IPs of your PCs\network devices then you will know if it is you or not.
If you go HERE and enter the IP that GRC displays it will give you a better idea. Or HERE. It will show you the IP that the Internet see`s when you are online. You can then click on the Whois on xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx it will probably show your ISP provider not your home.
