    Question How to hide a computer from uniquely identified online other than by MAC address

    I use Microsoft OS. For any private searches, websites, I use VPN.

    I am curious to know how a computer could be uniquely identified by some one (ISP, FBI, NSA etc) other than the computers MAC address. I tried changing SID but it was crashing my system. I know tools like OSFuscate cant fool tools like Satori which is used for OS fingerprinting.

    1. Would it be possible to access the unique processor id or Hard disk id online?

    2. What is the best way to hide OS information online. Any other tools other than OSFuscate?

    3. How to Spoof system info online (Not spoofing MAC Address)?

    4. Is there any way to change the uniqueness of my system each time before I go online each time?

    5. I set my DNS server in my network adapter settings. But it reverts back to nill each time I restarts the machine. Any way to set the DNS address permanently for a network adapter - dnscrypt ?

    Appreciate any help...

    DNS server - check your router manual. You maybe able to disable the auto dns in it and then you will be able to set it.

    No, not without remote access to the machine.

    2. What is the best way to hide OS information online. Any other tools other than OSFuscate?

    By either not providing it, or simply obfuscating it. There are several browsers designed for privacy such as http://www.srware.net/en/software_sr...n_download.php

    3. How to Spoof system info online (Not spoofing MAC Address)?

    You can manually set things such as User Agent in the browser, or change TCP TTL in the registry.

    4. Is there any way to change the uniqueness of my system each time before I go online each time?

    You could theoretically create a script that forces regeneration of things such as SSL key pairs, changes the user agent, etc.

    5. I set my DNS server in my network adapter settings. But it reverts back to nill each time I restarts the machine. Any way to set the DNS address permanently for a network adapter - dnscrypt ?

    The network adapter settings shouldn't change on their own unless there is a secondary application running that might be overwriting it. Uninstall the network software and use bare drivers rather than the OEM application.
    Real security doesn't come with an installer.
