    Hello,

    a few questions.. first, danasoft.com objects in peoples sigs(other forums anyway)..listing to me my IP, ISP, OS, & Browser. not unbelievable, but i'd like to know if there's a way to block objects or pages from "seeing" that info.. I realise those things are probably "worn on my forehead" when i surf..just curious. btw i use zonealarm free, and is there another FREE firewall that might work with ZA or one that might work better than ZA ??
    And while Gazing into my Registry, a couple paths contained my email PASSword, i believe it was under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\IdentityCRL\Creds. i CAN delete this right?

    also, i am trying out firefox, and i might want to try out IE 7 beta or OffByOne even, and i don't want IE 6 anymore.. is there a way to safely uninst or delete IE 6, just don't want conflicts in XP, i know it is waayy more fickle than the great '98 or whatall else..
    lastly, i'm trying to figure out when Vista supposed to be arriving, anybody clue, or lnk?

    TNXks

    im not sure about blocking the OS, Browser, and ISP, but if u use an anonymizer proxy or similar u can block ur own computer's IP from being shown.

    Hello,
    You can spoof the browser agent.
    For instance, Firefox has an agentswitcher extension, which allows you to write just about anything, like using IE on Solaris or Firefox 3 on Win 3.11. I tried it many times. If danasoft cannot recognize the agent from an existing pool, it will simply display a blank entry.
