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.

    RE: Anonymizer
    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?
