INTERNET EXPLORER IP CHANGER [SUPPORT PAGE]
The IP Address
Changer is an easy to use program with a self-explanatory interface.
It is compatible with any computer that has Windows 98, ME,
2000, XP, Vista, or 7 along with and version of Internet Explorer.
Once installed, changing your IP address should be as simple
selecting a country from the dropdown menu. If you're still
having trouble after reviewing the information below, please
ARE NO COUNTRIES APPEARING IN THE IP CHANGER DROPDOWN
You just need
to get the IP/country settings from iPrivacyTools.com/update.
It's important to follow the instructions on that page carefully:
- If you're
using Internet Explorer with Windows XP or
earlier: Make sure to RIGHT-click the link on the updating
page and then save to your C:/Windows folders (the "Windows"
folder is a subdirectory of your C:Drive). Then close and
re-open Internet Explorer and the country selections will
appear. If you don't have a C:Windows folder, you'll instead
save to your C:WINNT folder.
- If you're
using Internet Explorer with Windows Vista:
RIGHT-click the link on the updating page and then save to
your DESKTOP (or any other location that Vista will allow
you to save to). Then use the "Import" selection
on the IP Changer toolbar to open that file.
most frequent issue is failure to RIGHT-click on the updating
link. If you're right handed, this means using your middle-finger

Desktop is best). If your computer automatically chooses a download
location, try RIGHT-clicking on the download link instead.

Explorer and go to the dropdown menu for View->Toolbars. Is
'IP Tool' an option there?
If 'IP Tool' is an option, select it (Check the checkbox).
If you still do not see the IP/country list dropdown, it probably
got pushed off to the side or hidden under some other Internet
Explorer toolbar items. Simply RIGHT-click on the upper/grey
part of your Internet Explorer toolbar, and you will see an
option for "IP Tool". Try UNchecking and REchecking that a
few times. The IP changer will pop back into place.
(a): If there is no selection for 'IP Tool', 1) confirm
that you are logged into this computer as a user with administrative
privileges, 2) under the Internet Explorer menu for Tools->Internet
Options->Advanced, make sure that "Enable 3rd party
browser extensions" is checked, 3) then try reinstalling
(b): Very rarely an antivirus program might mis-identify
the Internet Explorer version of the IP Changer as a virus.
It is an understandable error, since any software that changes
your browser settings (like the IP Changer) is somewhat "suspicious"
under normal conditions. However, in the case of the IP Changer,
you are intentionally toggling some changes on your browser
(which you can turn off anytime). For solutions to antivirus
conflicts, please click here.
(c): On extreme rare occassion (twice in the last
2 years) we have heard that people using "Google Desktop"
software or "Google Toolbar" had problems with installation.
So if you're running either, try disabling it to see if that
makes a difference.

dropdown menu Tools->Internet Options->Delete Cookies).
Then close and re-open your browser. You can also disable
Level->Disable Active Scripting.
Make sure that the page you're using to check your IP is fresh
by clicking Reload or Refresh on your browser. Better yet,
try using another website to check your IP address.

If you have
many items on your Internet Explorer toolbar, some may occasionally
get pushed off to the side or hidden under others. Simply
RIGHT-click on the upper/grey part of your Internet Explorer
toolbar, and find the option for "IP Tool". Try UNchecking
and REchecking that option a few times. The IP changer will
pop back into place.

that your login for the servers is the same as the login you
used for downloading. If you have forgotten your username or
password, please click here to have
it emailed to you.
INTERNET CONNECTION SEEMS SLOWER
Keep in mind
that your Internet traffic is traveling around the world (or
to the country you select) before it reaches you. Also, proxy
servers are subject to traffic spikes, maintenance shutdowns,
etc. If you're having trouble with one server, try using another.
Also, it makes the most sense to only use a proxy when you're
on sites where you are concerned about your IP address being
displayed. At all other times you can surf normally by selecting
"Clear" on the dropdown menu.

your antivirus software and read their Help menu to determine
how to add a program/application to the AV "exclusion"
