How to Surf Without Leaving a Trace

I want to be able to send emails and not have my IP address tracked back to me.  Then I would like to be able to surf the net -- without the spybots graffing bits of info about me, what I do, where I go and what I like.

I was researching: Freedom Websecure,  but it appears to be off the net and unable available.  My net choice is:  Priviate Surfing

I understand that a proxy server is also an option,  I have a server but haven't configured it to act as a Proxy (don't know how).   I believe my problem is:  I have a static IP and unsecure how to get this to work.

The objective to surf the net and send emails without exposing myself.

If you run the proxy server, then you aren't really going to hide anything because your proxy is still at the same IP address as your personal machine (I suppose). The idea of anonymous surfing via a proxy is that you use a proxy that someone else hosts. All request look as though the proxy (and its associated IP address) is the entity requesting the information. Going through your own personal proxy is effectively surfing directly from your machine.

You can easily search for various free proxies. I believe is a popular one.
