Anonymizer

One of the websites that I use requires a security question and answer on an occasional basis. However, on my home computer, I must answer the question everyday (at work, I never have to answer the question). When I inquired why, they indicated that I'm running an "anonymizer" which I understand for stealth internet surfing. However, I do not ever remember installing any software that does this.

Is this part of McAfee and if so, how do I get rid of it? I also tested ZoneAlarm at one point and ran Norton for years. I never recall the issue in Norton; I don't know about ZoneAlarm. Is there a way to tell what the anonymizer program is or where it might be hiding?

Any help is appreciated.

    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?
