Re: Removing TOR from Registry

Sounds complicated alright.
Ain't no techie and prefer programs that leave me with little to do manually.
I hate commands.
What you see is what you get programs are my general preferences.

I just booted up into knoppix (knoppix.org <http://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,
           rather than remove Tor.  This is simply accomplished by setting
           "toggle 0" in the privoxy config.

           The packaged uninstall program will remove itself and the
           Application Data directories.  As for the rest of the stuff
           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.
