actually the problem is , previously it was done by a kid (my nephew), he used my laptop and send anonymous info to the site and i was unable to resolve it.

it would be great if you can provide tip, i have also used MAC adress changer software but it doesnt work.

i was on vacations and the kid used it and he is not telling me what actually he did. there is no harmful things. thats why i have asked honestly and said the actual problem.

Thanks

Not that it would help. The website never sees your MAC address. Nor can you control your IP address, that is your ISP.

Websites block by IP's. Mac addresses get changed as frames are decapsulated / encapsulated at the data-link layer. And listen to the admin, nobody here is going to help you.
