    hi can some some please tell me how to change my ip to a usa based address so i can unblock some youtube videos that are blocked in the uk

    i am using internet explorer i understand that i need to go to tools / internet options / connection...... but then am not sure what i need to change

    is it possible to just change the ip address for viewing youtube.com only?
    as i don't need it for any other site

    would that be safer so the owner of the IP address cant follow what sites i go to and find my usernames and passwords for forums and stuff like that

    also can someone tell me how to remove the usa ip after using it and return to using my ip address only

    thank you

    Not possible for a variety of reasons.

    To achieve what you're trying to do google for web proxy...

    you could use a vpn but that would probably be a waste of money for a few videos. If you download anjd install hotspot shield it should work for what you want Hotspot Shield

    a proxy is your best bet.
