What are you trying to achieve? There is a VPN client built in to W7.

Yeah what do you want a VPN for? To remotely access your home PC? To try and circumvent Netflix location-locking?

For example, if you want a free UK IP address you can use a server like: http://www.ukipvpn.com/, and follow the steps described above.

Be aware it will be quite slow most of the time.

The free ones are pretty much all slow. UnoTelly VPN wasn't particularly expensive from memory.

Google VPNGate, the hosts in Japan tens to be best. Worth noting that data is logged and stored for 2 weeks.

If you want a good secure connection you're going to have to pay.

Unblock-us used to charge US$3.99 a month, so only petty cash.

Secure from what? From where? To what?

If it's security you're after, using the built-in Windows PPTP one is *useless*, don't do it.

You don't have to use PPTP

How secure is secure.
There are anonymizer services, but when push comes to shove they may just handover all details of who was using what to go where (has happened before)

Heres some info, a few years old but gives you some idea

Which is why I was asking. Something like OpenVPN with 128-bit Blowfish cipher usually works a treat and is rather simply to get up and running.
Here's a bit of interesting reading with some links about security of them:

I used SuperFreeVPN for a couple of years to access Netflix. Now I can get Netflix on PS4 so no need to use it. But it did work just fine.
