I can't beleive I never thought of putting a shortcut to my Internet Conection on my Desktop!...lol this is so smart!! So now at night or whenever I'm gonna be away from my computer for a while! I'll disconect!!! right on man Thanks!!!
Also I got McAfee pro,cause my antivirus only had three days left? I got it from my sister!! and it also has a firewall in it, I've install the firewall too! but, I don't know if I need it? you see! when I do a test on Sygate? with only my router firewall,I pass it!! then it tells me to try the test without the Sygate firewall on?..lol I don't even have it? and I pass there test,so! I knew that I wasn't gonna bye their firewall?..lol but I was told that you can never have enough protection? so this is why I installed the McAfee one!!
But hey!! that conection shortcut?..lol how much safer can you get?..

Hi. If you want to be anonymous then there are a umber of ways. As suggested above you could use a program like anonymizer which claims to be 100% foolproof. (somehow i get the feeling that if you really want to get traced you can be The best way is certianly to use a proxy. http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html
This is a link to some proxies, or u could just type in free proxy into google ( the best resource in the world.) You could also use a wingate, and again just type into google, but these are all well and good but as I said before, if its just to hide from a friend then its all well and good, but anything serious any you would get found out.

glad you are getting things sorted out...
now gimme some points, LOL.
No, remember, it is not only about keeping bad traffic from getting in, but also to control
your outbound traffic. Some malware calls "home", and a software firewall can
alert you to these attempts and even prevent such traffic, depending on how
you configure it. I believe that McAfee has such capabilities, so you should be good to go.
That is one of the criteria in choosing a firewall.

Update: alright guys! I've found a proxy setting that works but!!..lol ya I know!
if i keep the proxy on! and I go for the test on Sygate! there's about 4 or 5 open port's,but the IP is not mine!witch is what I'm trying to do?
But if I take the proxy off!at sygate it's all stealth! exept for my real IP???
So witch one is better?
