Sorry i couldnt resist...............Theres not much you can do to really hide your ip unless your using a proxy server.
And even then its not totally foolproof....if a site cant see your ip then you couldnt connect to it.

I think what d2981 might be looking for is a firewall. If you run a FW then you will essentially be surfing in 'stealth' mode. This would mean that for someone maliciously trying to gain access to your pc, that they wouldn't know you're there.
If you want a free FW then ZoneAlarm and Sygate have excellent examples.
