My issue is similar to Notageek "I keep getting 404. . ." posted below. GhostSurf stopped working when I changed firewalls(Tiny DPF 2005), but even after switching back(ZA/windows firewall) it still hasn't worked. Also, I shut down ZA/Windows Firewall, and reconnected to the internet, still, NOTHING! It seems like they have a broken hub in the chain. IRQL bluescreen comes up sometimes but it worked with or without the error. 1) The only reason I use GhostSurf is because it can encrypt data, otherwise I could do it myself 2) Are there any good, reasonably priced(or free) alternatives w/ this ability?
