What is the best way to COMPLETELY HIDE/IMITATE IP ADDRESS and achieve annonymity during netbrowsing, FTP downloading, etc etc to prevent anyone attacking my PC?
I was thinking of first using public proxy servers (google search) for browsing the net but they are extremely slow and will not be useful if I want to do FTP download.
Then I found a programme - Hide IP 2.0 along with numerous others. But before I install anything I wanted to ask:
What are the advantages of using a proxy as opposed to using a software like Hide IP 2.0?
What is more advisable in my case?
What is the best PC soft for IP hiding?
What is the best proxy server?
I use SONY VAIO Laptop(latest config), with Windows XP - SP2, ADSL Connection, Firefox browser, Download Accelerator Plus and Cute ftp for FTP Downloading.
Thank yo very much, this question is urgent.
