Question by Juan: If I were to run a proxy while running the program tor, would I be more anonymous?

I currently have tor installed and running on my computer, I am also using dartproxy as my proxy while surfing for added pretection, but does it really work?. I also have Nod32 anti virus and zone alarm firewall. how anonymous am I to everyone online including people who might be specifically be looking for me?
can I be traced by perhaps people with influence, such as Microsoft or the gov?

You will be anonymous. You probably can’t even be hacked, unless one program has a security problem

    No, because they all leak via Java, flash, ipV6 and more. Plus the hackers running the Tor end nodes will steal your personal info as well as the hackers running the proxies.

    Tor is already a very good proxy, so there isn’t much point in using a web proxy on top of it. Theoretically, it provides an extra layer of protection, but basically it does the same thing as Tor, only not as well.

    Once you’ve got Tor set up, you’re pretty well covered as far as proxies, but you still need to look out for other tricks people can use to get your identity, Using NoScript or Torbutton provide some protection there. (Both are Firefox add-ons

    And of course there’s nothing wrong with combing Tor with a firewall (as long as it doesn’t get in the way) or antivirus, since those protect against different kinds of threats.
