    I was thinking of using tor for anonymity and after reading a post by Kye-U, I was able to get proxomitron, privoxy, and tor working nicely. but i dont want the tor window to also be minimized. i want it hidden or in the sys tray. how would I go about doing this?

    Hold on, I'm going to write a little tool to help add Tor to the Windows 2000/XP Services ^_^

    Kye-U,

    A good informative thread that - I would just raise one issue about the Privoxy settings. If you do a cut-and-paste to put them in Privoxy's configuration files via Notepad, a space gets added to each line which will result in an error message when you start Privoxy. It is therefore necessary to do a Replace, changing "\ " to "\" (leaving out the quotes).

    I have modified my post so that you can download the three modified files and simply overwrite the default files with them ^_^ This will remove any chances of an error in copying/pasting the source code of the files.

    Thank you for bringing this up ;)
