Do not share any files on your computer:
Right click on C: drive or D:, etc...
Make sure your files are not shared
Also do this:
Start:Programs:Accessories:System Tools:Disk Clean Up
Check everything except the compress old files
Keep all of your saved viewing materials in one main folder.
Right click on folder select properties
check hidden and OK
Open Windows Explorer, not Internet explorer
Open tools//folder options//view
Select "do not show hidden files and folders"
Do this when you are done browsing and go back to show hidden files when you are back on your computer.
Clear your documents:
Start//Settings//Taskbar and Menu Settings//
Select start menu//customize

no need to share the connection just configure ur router, put ur broadband connection log-in information in the router so the router will act as a gateway and the router will start the dhcp server, so both of ur pc's will have ip's from the same subnet when the router connects to the internet the 2 pc's will do the same,
Use a proxy service to enter the sites. Use one of the following links & enter your destination URL.
2. Use Google to load the cached (usually filter free) version of a website or proxy.
example: - goto google.com, and type in demonproxy or demonproxy.com - goto the first link by clicking on cached (not the real URL link). - type in the website you’re trying to goto in the URL bar and enjoy.
example - use http://home.myspace.com (instead of http://www.myspace.com). Other prefixes to try for myspace.com: browseusers. search. invite. mail. blog. invite. favorites. forum. groups. events. viewmorepics. music. classifieds. signup. chat. vids.
4. Install Circumventor - please read instructions carefully. 5. Block-Unblock your home network.
