Now for the person who is more concerned about protecting themselves the process is a little more complicated, but not too bad. First go to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/ and download and install firefox, if you can't do this with out a tutorial, well you shouldn't be on the internet anyway. Next you want to go to this link https://www.torproject.org/torbutton/index.html.en and download and install the tor button to firefox. *Note- it helps if you go to the link in firefox* Now that that is taken care of you need the Vidalia Control panel.
