Re: IP hiders
You mean you only have the free version of Zone Alarm (Firewall only) and not the full suite?
Yeah, that will still work, firewall is all you need.
How you would set it to hide your IP, I'm not sure though. I use Outpost Firewall Pro... which hides (or at least disguise) your IP on installation (I think anyway).
