    Well, you cannot hide your IP, just route all your traffic through another server so their IP shows. That's what VPN would do.

    Allot of software labelled as "hide IP" is that for a reason, so that it can be marketed as something that less tech savvy people can understand. A VPN is like a proxy, which is a form of "hiding" your own IP where as proxy software such as Tor does what most of the "hide IP" software does but is provided for free and just needs a little configuring. It's all documented though and if that still fails then I'm sure there will be videos on YouTube showing how it can be setup.

    Each of the methods I linked to work on Windows 7, in fact anything that works for Vista should also work for Windows 7.

    By far the best free VPN service for proxy is Hotspot sheild.

    That doesn't change IP, just stops it storing temp files.

    Yes, it does say so in the explanation I gave. Should be sufficient though. No need for paranoia, unless you are upto something really bad :D

    Even if you were to use a VPN, you ISP still sees all. The only thing you can do is use encryption then to protect yourself from the prying eyes of your ISP and the government...
    IP spoofers are BS. If you want to be truly safe, then dont download illegal software/movies via P2P...or at least wait a few weeks. Downloading illegal software/movies the instant they are released to the 'net (especially bit torrent) is just asking for the feds to come knocking on your door (or your ISP's door to subpoena your records and usage stats). ;)

    Well a VPN creates an encrypted tunnel to the VPN server usually

    Usually :) ...and it still must go through your ISP of course. There is no getting around that, and that is the point I was making. No matter what you do, your ISP will be able to see what is going on unless you use encryption. :)

    But massive bandwidth use will attract attention no matter what, and in that case having everything encrypted makes it look kind of shady... You just gotta use common sense with your downloading.

    I agree 500%. I use it all the time from my work to get access to torrent sites and radio stations inside of the US.

    I am using TOR, and some FF plugins like : prefbar ( hide referrer and real UserAgent ) better privacy and noscript.

    change ip software

    Hey you can change IP address of your PC as well as hide it in case you need not to show IP on some specific websites, for this get assistance from proxyrental.net. I found it the best.
