    Basically I don't want to have to allow DHCP, or svchost any connectivity to have my VPN function. I want to be able to continue to set up my network manually and keep svchost activity blocked, while still enjoying a trustworthy VPN choice. Is there one out there?

    Better yet... is there a way to get one of the ones I already covet (i.e. Mullvad/iVPN) to function in this manner that I'm not aware of. I can only seem to get them to work if I allow this functionality that I'd rather not.

    What a question!... I too am interested in such a setup. however I doubt Windows will accommodate for svchost bypassing. I don't think it was set up that way. I run W7, but have a legit WXP disc here, waiting for topics such as this one to be handled before I bother with it...

    Yeah, I'm talking about on an XP setup here, obviously, since without svchost you can't get internet connectivity period on Windows versions since XP.

    I fear we won't be hearing back because there is no good answer to this question.

    If this were remedied along with more quality providers accepting cash money, and/or the ability to use Visa Gift Cards the world (of computer privacy) would be a better place.
