Remember that a LiveCD doesn't protect you against hardware key loggers.

If you don't enable hide-forwarded-for-headers you are sending your
client's IP address to the web server. If you aren't using NAT,
this will obviously affect your anonymity.

This is probably the biggest issue, but of course most of Privoxy's
features are intended to make user tracking harder; if you disable
them you will be worse off then before, unless you find browser plugins
which do the same.

If you haven't already, you also might want to read Privoxy FAQ
