Can a program or a browser script detect that I am using a VPN to bypass international restrictions if I use the "create new network VPN" on windows 7?

If you go through a public VPN service the website could feasibly maintain a list of the IP addresses associated with that VPN service. They can't detect the fact that you're using a VPN specifically.
