Hi !

I'm used to run "Hotspot Shield" on windows, it works fine, I recently bought an Intel Imac, it is running the Mac OSX 10.5.8.

I am not able to run "Hotstop Shield", it can't access any site using any browser, I tried safari, chrome, and firefox, it didn't show any page.

When I turn off "hotstop shield" everything is back to normal.

Any Ideas?

Why would you want to send all your traffic to a company (AnchorFree, makers of Hotspot Shield) so they can do anything they want with your data?  And you have to look at ads all the time, and only have 5G of data per month?  And according to other reports online, your URLs are sent in the clear so anyone snooping at your local network could probably see which sites you visit anyway. This product is a big lose.

Leave it off, and uninstall it.  

I'm not sure what you are trying to protect -- any data worth protecting would be sent over a HTTPS connection -- so I don't really see the point.

Hi, et01267

I'm outside of US, so, when I need to watch "hulu" for example, the only way I know to watch "hulu" from outsite US is through "hotspot", it give me an IP that seems to be in the US,  if you have a better solution I would like to try.

Thanks

Well, personally I would use a bittorrent client like Vuse or Transmission to get shows from tvtorrents.com  and watch them using VLC.  Much better quality.

But, if you want to use Hulu, check out this info
