Explain what you mean by "a hacker got your IP".
Someone getting your IP address is a completely trivial matter, any time you connect to a website, any time you connect to various chat services your IP will be quite easy to look up. Just because someone knows your IP doesn't necessarily mean your computer security has been compromised.

The first thing you need to make sure of is that you're running a firewall. If you have a wired or wireless router that will afford you some built-in firewall protection, XP Service Pack 2 also comes with a built-in firewall. There are also a few free firewalls listed in this thread. Freeware Replacements for Common Commercial Apps.

Description of my problem: i was playing my online game( online games characters could be really expensive so ppl wanna hack you all the time) and a guy told in the chat to visit some page for free items and stuff, so odd, but my friend visited the site, and the hacker said throug the character he was using: ty, and inmediately after that he spelled my ip adress in front of me. hmmm that could result in that guy sending me keyloggers, they will get erased after reboot(i got deep freezer) but will i be vulnerable to hacker's attacks during my gaming like the guy logging the keys i press or sumthing? i also use to make master card payments throug internet, the game was just the starting point, the thing im really afraid of is that guy hacking my master card info. if you got to make an specific question go ahead and do it.

EDIT: my internet company provided me a kind of hybrid of modem/router, its a single device that makes all the work, my pc is directly connected to it.

As arcman was saying, you dont need to worry about hiding or changing your ip address. It is not related to security problems. As long as you a ) make sure you have a firewall, antivirus and antispyware in place and scan regularly, b ) keep up with critical updates, c ) be careful while surfing unfamiliar websites, d ) avoid downloading free stuff unless its recommended by a trusted source, e ) dont open email attachments from people you dont know, you should be fine.

Here are a couple of informative tutorials:
Safely Connecting a Computer to the Internet
Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe and secure on the Internet

This is usually plenty of security for casual use of the internet.

That said, if you are still very concerned about hiding your ip address, you can look into setting up a proxy server. This is probably overkill in your situation though.

In the "All other applications" section, there is a free program,Keyscrabler, that scrambles your passwords when you enter them. If you are that worried you might want to try it. I use it, is a link for it..HERE is a link for it. :thumbsup:

Did you download the Personal version? I don't think you have to activate it, you can purchase it if you want to, but I don't remember activating anything. I just loaded it up and let it go.

:thumbsup: what you say is right, with personal version you dont need to activate anything, but it only covers your keystrokes when you go onto a web site, and not everyone, just when the program detects that in that page are some spaces destinated to imput e mails, codes or watever, get it? ok.

But what i need is a version of that same program or someother that works under the same idea of scrambling what you write but with the adition that it works for EVERY keystroke you make and not only on some websites, i use to play videogames that can be set to full screen or windowed, (take a look to www.conqueronline.com) when you execute the game, the first thing you'll see is a window with a list of servers, you choose the one you play in, and then on the lower-left corner you will see two spaces that are there to imput your ID and your password, when i imput that info into the game's window the keyscrambler doesn't scramble anything, and if i were under a keylogger sourveilance in that precise moment, i will get hacked as result of it :flowers: i hope you get my idea-.- and recommend to me the exact program that i need. tyvm
