More like from what's viewed through it, I'm sure, but hey, what's the difference?
Shoot drive by even lol.

I use spywareblaster as an extra layer of security besides the usual tools.

I've used it a few times, nothing bad came from it. It's more of a "if you don't know about it or have no use for it then leave it alone."

For your case? Leave it alone.

what is tor project can any one use it? is it easy to use? has anyone used it on here? I have read a little bit on it but need to know is it safe? I wont use it if I don't know what I am doing.
It's the deep web, it useses several addy's so you can not be tracked on the net, its easy to use but slow, it is used to remain antonymous on the inter-wed

It's a web browser with a built in vpn... in the simplest terms..

It's nothing special but you can get on the "dark net" sites with it. Although I wouldn't recommend that, those sites have been compromised for years now.

Tor is a dark web browser which allows access to certain places that do not exist in normal web. It anonymizes your traffic by switching to another IP address from some other country. It's heavily monitored by the FBI and some other US agencies, mainly NSA; especially sites that sell illegal arms, drugs etc.

It's ok, pretty safe and also if you're just browsing you can't harm your PC.

You have no clue on what you're talking about when it comes to Tor, do you? Quote R-T-B there;
Famous last words... oh and epic necro bump.
I followed a link that gave a multitude of libraries where the options ranged from buying/selling home electronics, to weapons and explosives, to hiring hitmen, to child pornography, to bitcoin traders, to "casual meetups" and so much, much more.

It's not safe for the average consumer. It's not safe for anyone that doesn't know how to use it or anyone ignorant enough to jump on into it. It's the gateway to the deep web and more so the dark web.

TL;DR it can harm your computer and you.

Well most of this is complete BS , scams , honeypots , you name. But there is the chance that it might not.

No point in risking that chance.

Agreed , just wanted to point out that you are more likely to end up with your money being taken away rather you being taken away.
