I am trying to find the best way to optimize my security when I browse the net. I have heard about peer blocker on another site. They were saying that anyone who choose to go to that site (a great quality site BTW) and download there they could get a notice just like he did. He posted the details of the notice on the thread, but just the fact that any agency is searching to find download transactions makes me want to remain anonymous when I surf. I also do not want to become part of some bot not or other parasitic type problems. That led me to doubts about my overall internet security as well. I have avg free and some other free programs, but I want to learn about and optimize the security options I have with windows vista security. Once I learn more I may choose a different OS to completely optimize my security when I am browsing. If anyone has info via articles, posts, or even books anything is better than what I have. I will be grateful to anyone who can offer me advise or direction to solid info. Thanks.
