1st I cant get the open vpn client from the link in the guide. I have a subscription for US proxy. have tried a version of openvpn but asked for username/password and ip address on setup so dont think that was correct. Could someone please point me in the right direction for a good client I can configure. Thank you in advance. PS. I dont have much hair left after this

Glad you got it solved. It sounds like your setup is slightly different from the one I describe. I don't suppose you would like to jot down some details of what you did for the benefit of others would you?
To get OpenVPN working I added a new folder in the config folder named keys where I had my certificates and key files that I got from myexpatnet and used their .opvn file with OpenVPN, my login details are in 1 of the .cert files i gather as all worked after that. The only problem I had after that was getting OpenVPN to run from TunerFree with admin rights. For this I created a scheduled task with highest privileges that ran the openvpn.bat file (created as per your instructions). I then created a shortcut for this task using "C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /tn task_name". to keep things tidy I placed this shortcut in the config folder. To run the shortcut from TunerFree I created a new batch file with the line "C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\config\shorcut_name.lnk". I also created another process for the kill VPN. I only done this because I couldnt get MC7 to run as admin without that annoying popup asking me to confirm to run. If there is an easier way I would love to know as this was a headache as never worked with .bat files before.
I will say if looking for free usa vpn services than it’s worthless to use in your work. I have used some free vpn services but they give you only limited usage which is not even going to connect you to remote server for long time. I am using USA vpn connection; you should try considering paid services.
