Solved: Can connect but then not anonymous

I downloaded the latest OpenVPN client from the OpenVPN website and the new config files from here. I can connect to a server, but after connecting when I go to whatismyip.com or click the Check IP link on this site, both report my real IP address. So I tried taking the batch files I used with the old version of OpenVPN (from the tutorials section) and tried again. Still no luck. I'm doing something wrong but I don't know what. Please help me.

@samlowry: It looks like your traffic is not going through the OpenVPN tunnel at all. Maybe owa is right, are you running OpenVPN as admin user? If you still have the issue, please copy&paste the log here and replace your local IP address and username with XXX. Of course you can also send me a PM with it if you so prefer.

Yes I was running it as admin. I uninstalled OpenVPN and reinstalled it, and now it is working. Thanks for the replies and the great service!
