Your computer feeling a lot slower lately? That new program you installed not working? Can't convert a specific file? Looking to buy a new hard drive or dvd writer? Would like some recommendations? Firewalls, latest threats and general P2P security issues are here also.

Well I am giving IPVanish a go at $10 a month, just got running and re started eEmule. All looks to be working, still interested in learned more on the topic and VPN service software experience. What I have found of the topic seems old info.

Halfway down the forum section this topic is in, there is a topic entitled "VPN"...members have listed a few choices in there but, as you say, it's a year or two old. Personally, I just use PeerBlock (it's an IP blocking program) and I haven't got a CI email since using it (started using it when I got an email and only other time I got another email was when I downloaded something without Peerblock running)...only downside is it blocks a lot of legitimate IP's (creates havoc when I'm trying to complete online surveys, visit websites etc) but it's a small price to pay for the amount I download. It has 2 versions: Free and Premium with the Premium only costing $5 a year.

As for VPN's, I'm not an expert but I usually start with searching for "top VPNs of 2018" or something similar then start looking further into them...however, Wikipedia does have some good information about them and would be a good place to start:
