Re: Removing TOR from Registry

I didn't actually "image" the information persay. I just booted up into knoppix (knoppix.org), which you'll need a high-speed connection to download (or a lot of time) and a CD-burner with software such as ISOMAGIC. Once booted into knoppix, just go into the root shell and type this: (assming this is your sys info, you may have to edit the command. You will need to have enough space to back-up your entire computer. If you don't try TARring the data
mount -rw /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
Then, use the other command for wherever you will copy the data assuming it's a different drive. Then just use the cp command to copy everything. Complicated? Yes. Security isn't free.

       The better tactic might be to disable privoxy filtering then,

       "toggle 0" in the privoxy config.

       The packaged uninstall program will remove itself and the

       strewn about the system by Windows, you'll want to look in the
       %systemroot%\prefetch directory, scan the registry for instances
        of tor, privoxy, or vidalia, and confirm all relevant
        directories are removed from Program Files, Application Data,
        and Local Settings.
