    Hi folks,

    Is there a way to make my hardware profile, especially the HD, invisible when surfing online?

    I know the HD gets a serial # when formatted that is trackable. Further more, what about its model-size-etc. ?

    I guess an IP jamming software isn't the solution - if so, what should be the answer for enjoying an unrecognized Hard-Drive? Physical modulations are accountable too.

    Thanks in Advance

    The web browser does not send any information about your computer other than maybe your OS to web servers. (As well as javascript compatibility, etc.) The only way a browser should know is via you allowing something like a java applet the permissions (manually) to access your computer. (And by that point it can do whatever it wants--so that would be the least of your worries.)

    For surfing - Do everything in a virtual machine, as in VMWare, Virtual PC, etc.
    If you really want to hide a drive from snooping eyes use PDP whole disk encryption, but you cant use it on your OS drive.

    I would reccomend "trucrypt" if you want full encryption (of the system drive)
