Hi I was goin through download.com looking for a program that can hide my ip address so I can surf the web more protected. I found one program called "Hide my IP". First of all is it illegal to use these kinds oof programs? Second of all can these programs affect my browsing speed in anyway? And last of all can these programs affect my computer in anyway, such as slow it down or give it a virus or anything like that?

THANKS IN ADVANCE TO ANYONE WHO ANSWERS MY POST. :thumbsup:

The use of a program to hide your isp isn't illegal, however be aware that authorities will not be prevented from tracing your isp should they wish to.

I don't know if they affect browsing speed but I wouldn't see why unless they direct you through another connection on the Internet which in that case Internet traffic and the speed of the connection used may affect your speed - same for the anonymizer sites.

There are also proxy sites for surfing the Internet - anonymizer sites.

Many irc channels servers will not allow you access unless they can verify your isp.
