I stopped using the program, and uninstalled Hotspot (until I get better Internet). I restarted my modem, computer, all of that but it still says I'm somewhere in Ontario. How do I get my original IP back? Thanks!

Click on the Hotspot Shield icon in the system tray and use disconnect. Wait a few seconds and your original IP address will be restored to the original one.
