Hi All....As it seems with a lot of others I found this site in a google search, it looks to be a very active and helpful place am so glad I found it, just one thing though when I was having a quick look through the forums on one of the posts there was a little mouse picture and it had information about my computer like my IP address and the version of IE I am using etc, should I be worried about that?

hello shakin_off_dust,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

No.. you don't have to worry about that, only you can see your ip address. Basically, anyone that view any page that has it will see their own ip address. No others can see it.

Nothing to worry about.
