need help in browsing the internet

by sapheroth / November 15, 2004 3:09 AM PST

my isp doesnt allow me to use p2p softwares (like kazaa,emue etc.)and also i m not able to access certain websites and download certain video and audio formats formats.i used a software "primedius web tunnel" and it worked good.with its help i was able to use p2p software and access all the sites.
but its was a trial version and worked only for a weak.i want to know that is there any other free software that can do the same job.
i think its kind of anonymous serfing.

Firstly, I would stay away from Kazaa. It is riddled with spyware and adware, and that is probably why your ISP blocks you from using it.

Secondly, if your ISP does block you from downloading certain files, or surfing certain web sites, that is an issue you should take up with your ISP, or change to a different one.

I would change ISP right away. Try Areslite. In cnet, go to downloads type p2p in search box and it is on the second page. Its a small program with no ads or spyware. It works great for music, movies or, programs.

changing the ISP is a better option..but the prob. is that i have purchased the serive of that isp for 6 months and now i think i have to stick with this.

i asid that the software that i mensioned above works good.with that software i can use p2p shofware and download any file that i want...but its not free.i have to pay monthly in order to use this software..
i just want to know that is there any other software (free or shareware) that can do the same job as "primeduis web tunnel"...

I just looked up your p2p web tunnel and I don't know of any shareware that will hide from your isp. My Isp will shut you down if they find copy write material on your machine. All you need to do is keep it in another folder and not share it. I only share adult movies and don't have problems with that. But I download other stuff, I won't mention because of this forums policies. I can also use my router to hide behind my first computer and my cable company can't see my other computers. as to cleaning your machine you can find all kinds of tool to do that for you,free. I use HDcleaner. you can find it at www.majorgeeks.com. As to p2p's there are about 150 different ones, most free on cnet. Its your preference to the one you like. I like Areslite and Limewire international. Both are ad free and no spyware attached. Alot of free p2p do have ads that slow you down and spyware that you need to get rid of after the download. witch can be a big pain. I hope this helps. Skip

This is like hiding your street address from the postman.

Hiding your IP from your ISP is the same thing.

You will get no mail and no packets from your ISP which is "the internet".

Quite funny if you think about it.

let me explain first....
my isp doest allow me to access certain site lets say "www.abc.com"i get an error on the webpage "access denied. contact your webmaster"...but when i use that software(i mentioned above),i can access that website easliy .
what doest it means???
i think this means that my isp doesnt know what i m doing.and this is what we call anonymous browsing.
and same case is with downloading certain file formats like mp3,wmv,etc.
now what...

Believe me we get what your talking about. If there is any free software like this I don't know about it. If there was any free software like this, then someone else would of already jumped in here to tell you about it. Like Bob said, your Isp gives you your IP address. Without it you can't surf the net. Your paid p2p must be acting as another Isp to let you do what you want. So you actually have 2 Isp's. Get the picture? Get another Isp or wait out the 6 months. Next time know what you are paying for before you buy it. Skip

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
