I have little experience with privacy software other than tor/vidalia. I had problems with vidalia/tor/privoxy (bundle package) because it was too slow. It is also a challenge to uninstall when I did (I had to go into the registry and some other things to get it off my computer). So, what I am looking for is something that will allow me to surf anonymously from my ISP and other people. My ISP is a college (one I attend). The college recently sent out an email saying the RIAA was suing 12 students for illegal music downloading. So I'm guessing either the ISP ratted them out, or the RIAA just picked up there ISP from some download place they set up. I also have an account to demonoid, and would like to be able to download large files anonymously too. I haven't used the account at my college at all, and don't trust Tor with it due to its small bandwidth. So, long story short, does anyone have any recommendations for me? Again, I'm mainly looking to be able to surf the net anonymously from my ISP (college) and still have a fast connection. I would also like to keep other prying eyes out as well. I would prefer the service be free (I'm a college student). Thanks for any recommendations and advice.
