Windows 7: Hotspot shield problem

I think the problem is TAP VPN driver. If so, the only possible solution I can think of is to do a system restore to a point before you installed HotSpot Shield first time, and then reinstalling it being sure when install asks the permission to install TAP VPN you click YES.

Other than that, I really don't know. I'm using HSS a lot, almost daily, and it's never caused any problems.

Yes, of course. Remember to install AV and firewall to your Virtual XP, it can not use the ones installed on your host system. Use MSE or some other freeware AV solution. XP Mode download here.

If you install HSS to XP Mode before you have installed a firewall, it might not ask the permission to install TAP VPN. If it asks, remember to click YES.

i solved the problem by opening xp mode, installing hotspot shield, and then copying the link, from the internet to my firefox window it worked fine..
anyway, i think thers some problem for some reason windows can not open browser windows from programs.. like if i like register in avast it dosen't open internet window and in other programs..
anyway.. hotspot shield was a bust anyway, beacuse it streams videos to slowly..
