    Hi!

    I just subscribed to a VPN service, where I use OpenVPN to browse the internet anonymously.

    Is it possible that I am not as safe as I think I am? Could I still be leaking my personal information in the form of my stores web cookies, LSO (flash cookies) and java.exe processes?

    block java in settings browser, but will be good if you innstall firewall, there block java, Activex and flash.
    Openvpn does not give complete anonymity, I am use multiduble Vpn on vipvpn

    Just trying vipvpn now, 100mbit connection it says. Well on a 50mbit internet through the vipvpn I get speedtest result of 0.5mb. Without using vipvpn my speedtest is full 50mbit download speed.

    Waste of $40.
