I appreciate the response, but it doesn't appear to the be issue. I am having this problem on all computers I have on my home network, and have never installed the anonymizer program. The common thread on these computers is:
1. Network hardware
3. McAfee Total Security currently installed
4. Norton Internet Security previously installed
5. Anonymizer or other stealth surfing software never installed
I have taken care of testing #1 in that I disconnected my computer from the network and connected it directly to my ISP. The same issue occurs. I did a check to see how my computer is recognized on the internet, and it is showing the same IP Address that I'm reading on my WAN connection and it is reporting no detectable proxy servers. I'm following up on #2 with my ISP.
That leaves #3 or #4, or an issue with the website I'm using. To my knowledge, I've removed all traces of Norton from all of my computers, using the Norton removal tool, but I am going to follow up with Norton.
I really am thinking that my issue is either McAfee (in fact one of the computers I'm using has only had this version of McAfee installed on it -- never Norton). Does anyone know if there is some feature of McAfee Total Security that might emulate some sort of proxy server or anonymous surfing program?
Some browsers also can hide user information from websites.
Have you tried visiting the website in question with IE? If so, do you have any plug-ins / add-ins installed for IE?
