Hi: I may be showing my neophyte status here, but my understanding is that even if you use a proxy to hide your identity, there is other information about your computer [such as what software you have on it] that is transmitted to the websites you visit so you could be traced. My questions are: a) is this true? and does anyone have the experience of being "busted"/ID-ed even with using proxies? b) if it is true, do you know how to avoid that issue? I was thinking of setting up a separate identity on my computer and signing into that when I used proxy service, but wasn't sure if that would really work as presumably same software would be available, but if that offers a possible option, please advice the best way to do that.
