    This web site http://www.anonymizer.com/ advertises what might be a useful package for little paranoid me, with "out of box" ease for lazy me.
    The patter makes some serious claims.
    Already have good anitspy and AV apps.
    Any substance to the anti keylogger claims?

    Already have good erasing apps.

    Already have apparently effective firewall.
    Any benefits/substance to the anonymizer package and the net shield package.

    Any benefits above OnLine Armour/PG combo for the Net Shield app?

    Any insights?

    Regards.

    theyre anonymizing programs so sites wont see ur real ip, theyre different programs from OA and PG. in comparison to anonymizer, total net shield includes additional stuff like tunneling, spam protection, and privacy features (cookies, ads, tracker bugs). heres the comparison chart.
