    For anonymous searching, check this link out. Someone posted it in another thread.

    I came across this link for remaining anonymous online and would appreciate any comments pro or con.

    On each search result there is a "View by Ixquick Proxy", which solves the problem. Engage your brain next time.
  5. How about this solution. Tails Linux OS Updated just a few days ago.
    It's a live DVD/USB, so just check the computer BIOS settings and if necessary change it so that the computer will boot from DVD/USB first. If no OS is present in the DVD/USB then it will boot to Windows.

    No changes are made to the computer when running a live Linux DVD/USB, but it will run slower than if it was installed onto the computer.

    when using windows IE9 ensure that you under tools => tracking protection have the protection lists enabled. Also there is a special one for google since they sneakingly bypass security settings.

    However it is not sufficent for visiting those websites that deliberately try to mine your machine for passwords etc which is where the OP products are good for.

    Have on occasions been using Tor and it looks pretty decent.

    Thanks for the link to the Startpage search engine.

    Well, any Linux distro that can be ran from a USB stick can do the same. Nevertheless, your ISP, thus your location still can be known, unless you are using your neighbour's or Starbuck's access...

    But yeah, if I am running Mint from USB in a parking lot across the coffehouse, that is pretty anonymous, although kind of far away from home...
