    this isnt to be bad or anything, im just concerned about my privacy, as I have learnt the lesson more than once of giving out my informatrion. Also the fact that people can get my ip easily caused me to be chased by a hacker for over a year now and be alert all the time. I just dont want more hackers after me.

    You can but in many cases hiding you IP address will prevent you viewing pages and using many messengers.
    Most instant messenger have a built in way of hiding your IP.
    unless you have a static IP address then I would not be too concerned as every time you dial in it changes.
    You are better off concentrating on having a good anti virus program (AVG recommended) and a firewall (Zone Alarm)
    Those pop up ads you see about IP addresses are nothing but ads to sell junk.
    Even if you did use IP hiding software there is no guarantee it will keep you safe.
    Oh it will not work with OAL at all.

    AOL now has a Popup Stopper that works fine.

    thanks for the responses, sometimes sites get my subnet mask, and sometimes my real ip, i had outpost firewall and AVG but now i have gone over to the dark side (norton) and it can stop certain data from leaving for example my ip, thanks for your time.
