    thanks, but will
    1.Spyware doctor
    2.Spy Sweeper

    clash with any of the hacking or spyware softwares?

    and does the firewalls only prevent outside intrusions and doesnt effect things already on ur pc?

    and lastly does the privacy only hide your IP address?

    ill appreciate if you can help me understand these basics.

    thank you

    they do but if you configure them properly you'll be fine!

    for example

    put all ya viruses and stuff on a different hard drive!
    [partition your harddrive]
    and dont let anything scan it!

    g2g na, i'll give you more details laters or someone else will :)

    if i do this it will delete ALL my data....so, can i use my restoration CD (which came with the pc when i bought it ) to get my data back after the partition?

    and one more thing, i use Eraser software to erase files and etc

    will the partition get rid of all data that was deleted so it is un-retrivable?

    thank you

    partitioning your HD wont delete your stuff!
    well, i've partitioned mine and it just partitioned it without deleting anything.. :]

    try:
    Paragon partition manager|

    use it with care tho!, it can get confusing... i deleted everything off my HD when I first started using it, then I had to reinstall everything.. :p

    anywayz, if you want to FORMAT your HD and if you want to make data non-recoverable then use
    darik's boot and nuke:
    http://dban.sourceforge.net/

    it works just like a Shredder, Shredders only delete files and documents, this one formats any HD that it could find on the computer, data will be non-recoverable [read the documentation to get a better idea about how it workz and how to use it]... :]

    hope tha helpd :D

    oh and it;s not a bad idea to backup all your stuff just incase!!

    and yeah you can use that restoration CD to install all your drivers but not the operating system, you prob know that already! lol :]

    Anti-Virus/anti-Spyware --> Advanced Options --> Scan Targets --> Local Disks --> uncheck the HD with stuff ;)

    Yeah thanks for the information, i got ZoneAlarm Pro and Privacy Guardian installed and working well so far.
    do i really need anymore softwares (ex:Spyware doctor) on my computer :S ?

    btw, correct me if i am wrong, these softwares protect you from attacks but what about if you want to try to hack and want to stay hidden. what software can keep you anonymous.

    thank you.

    ps:

    yeah it uses proxy like any other ip hiding programs so yh! :)

    but some proxy servers records what you do online (i heard that some of them do!), not all* of them!

    My best advise would be never mix or place your tools in the same computer as your workstation.
    If you can use another dummy computer for learning.

    Anything happens, just do a full format and you're back in business.
