I was just wondering if there are any computer geeks on here that could tell me how to hide my IP address on here. So that when I visit a website, I can't be traced. For example; When I visit a webpage it will show my area and say that I am the 1,000,000 visitor while flashing Troutman, NC and click here to see what I have won etc,. I saw something on T.V. about it and after checking into it- it was too expensive to buy plus, I don't trust putting my credit card info. on the Internet. Can I buy something some where around here that can do this? I checked at Staples and they said they didn't know anything about it or where that I could buy the program or software. Can I take my computer to someone who works on computers to get my IP address hidden? Also like fore say when I comment on here it shows my area and I would like to have that hidden as well. By the way, I called my Internet Co. and they couldn't help me either on this matter.

Yes you did. Go to the top and next to the "Topix" shouild be the name you used when you signed up. Click on it and you should be able to change your location within the profile.

proxy server is what you're looking for, it's basically like call forwarding for the internet, and you can still be traced through it. what you really need to do is instead of hiding your location just bypass the ads altogether, get firefox and use the adblock and no script add-ons

Thank you Bob! Will this work as well when I visit certain sites that have something like you are the 1000 visitor today from Troutman flashing real fast? Then it says something like click here to see what you have won.
