May be its because of you not setting it up properly?
Also you need to create a account on it brfore you can use it. Had you done that?
GPass is the best and fast
how to use it?
I surf anonymous and safe with http://www.vpntunnel.se/en/ they are really good.
but its not free. Here we are talking about good and free ones. In paid segment there are many good ones.
thefreevpn is not anymore a free VPN client. They have stopped giving even Free invitations only and now fully paid. You need to spend some money before you can use it.
Regarding writing articles about some of the stuff you asked, there are articles already available over the web which cover this issue, but i would try to write something may be later on.

Van egy _Ãºj_ VPN szolgÃ¡ltatÃ³, rÃ¡adÃ¡sul magyar. Gondoltam megosztom veletek a lehetÅ‘sÃ©get (remÃ©lem nem veszitek spamnek).
BTW, this is otherwise international 😉 http://torvpn.com/
It gives you 1 GB free, instant signup & activation, no hassle. Then if you need more to transfer, you fill up your account. Seems reasonable.
hi avinash……i was using hotspot shield earlier to unblock the blocked sites……..now hotspot is making the net connection very slow that it takes minutes to load 1 page in a 8 mbps connection…so i downloaded hamachi but i am not sure how to configure it in order to unblock the blocked sites…..kindly help me in this matter…or else can u recommend any other VPN which are just like hotspot shield which is easy to use..
You can try ProXPN, its a free VPN. Just keep in mind every Free VPN has got speed limitations including hotspot shield and proxpn. So even if you got a 8 MBPS connection, you are bound by the speed of the VPn you are connecting to.The link to proXPN is already in this post.

I was using dreamvpn free service and it was really fast; however, now they have stopped the free service and started to charge. Do you suggest any other reliable free vpn whose performance is on par with dreamvpn service?
Hi there Avinash, happy here.
Well there is a hell lot of information you have entered on your website. But I need some help of yours regarding some internet problem that I have been facing with my office VPN Network. I have a VPN installed in my office where only access to 3 or 4 sites have been allowed. Not even google is assessable. I would like you to help me out with a solution, so as to enable me to surf the internet through other sites and also download stuff through IDM or another such download client. Any suggestions on the issue are desperately awaited. Looking forward to hear from you soon. A reply to my email ID will be highly appreciated.

Any VPN service that requires you to install software is NOT GOOD… which is just about every one of the ones you have mentioned.
vpn one click for windows and android is free.
change to win a paid VPN for a whole year few places left.
Google TipRadar thats how I found it
i need a free vpn
plz send for my gmail
I’d never use free vpn tools because its limited in features as well as risky compared to paid tools like, Hide My IP. HMIP is great in performance , protects online visibility, and its damn cheap.
