are you referring to when browsing? or under what circumstances? you can be a bit more specific. you know about proxy sites? you can go to a proxy site, google it, then do your browsing from there.

your basically browsing through their ip, the log of your ip may or may not end up on the proxy site, but the proxy sites ip is what is logged on the site you visit. also, the traces of teh sites you visit, other than cookies and browser cache are the fingerprints of the proxy site, not your ip. Its like a hop, your hopping through their ip first as you browse.

So this is where you're all hiding!
The Vista forums seemed to have quietened down lately, but now I've found where you've all been hiding. All dumped Vista for 7 already :p Edit: Also like how you've transferred all the system specs over from the Vista forum :)
