Defend Your Privacy and Manage Your Windows

Your PC IS your private place, where everything suits you perfectly—right? Well,the following  downloads can help. A free utility hides your Internet forays from a wide list of nosey parkers,and a Firefox add-on protects your privacy by telling you what the sites you visit may do with your information.

PeerBlock
It is designed to prevent your computer from making undesirable connections, such as to machines flagged for anti p2p activities, spyware companies, unscrupulous advertisers, and just people you don't want looking at what your computer is doing etc. This can significantly decrease your chances of being detected when downloading from p2p or Torrent networks, or of contracting malware/spyware from known sources. PeerBlock offers low-level blocking of packets coming from, or going to, a long list of hosts. While any decent firewall will let you block hosts one by one, PeerBlock does a lot of the work for you, providing several frequently updated lists of host addresses. It’s easy to add more blocklists, or to unblock a range of addresses  for a short period (or forever). This is a useful first line of defense.
