For some time now I was a total "noob" to proxies, and didn't have any idea on how to get them, or even where to get them. If you've looked around for proxies you KNOW that they can either be crappy, not working, or if you go the paying route very expensive. Well here's a better way to master proxies, and I figured it out after hours of searching. Step 1: HTML: http://www.forumproxyleecher.com/ When you go to Forum Proxy Leecher site, download their product (free). Install it (make sure you run anti-virus before installing just in case). After you install it, select the following two forums: proxy-heaven and checkedproxylists, then click "start leeching" Step 2: After you got thousands of proxies, then save them in a notepad file, and download Elite Proxy Switcher: HTML: http://download.cnet.com/Elite-Proxy-Switcher/3000-2144_4-10648539.html Run anti-virus, then install it. Now you open up Elite Proxy Switcher, and load / import the notepad file you've saved from forum leecher. Then you have it go through the proxies. Delete the ones with a red 'x', level 1, level 2, and ONLY KEEP the Level 3. Then save this into a file. Now rerun Elite Proxy Switcher with ONLY the level 3 proxies, and delete anything over 1500 seconds (you can sort them). Then once you have that list, save it over the previous level 3 proxy file. And rerun Elite Proxy Switcher 2-3 more times to delete anything over 1500 or anyone with red 'x'. Now once you have the final level 3 list, then just save them by overwriting your previous level 3 file. Now you can click on any proxy that you want and hit "connect" and you INSTANTLY switch IP to the proxy. Once you no longer need the proxy, then hit "disconnect". (They are both the same button) That's it! Now you've MASTERED PROXIES!
