I know that there are some host based firewalls that give this

Take a look at Sygate Personal Firewall Pro it has a check box for
enabling OS fingerprint masquerading.  Tiny Personal Firewall may also
have this feature (I can't remember).

Hope that helps,

may be some software firewall is running on the system which is showing
