    Hi,I'm trying to have 100% anonymity for reasons I can't discuss. I am currently running Tor through my OpenVPN. I want to know if I run Socks5 Proxies through my OpenVPN if this will give me anymore anonymity.Any suggestions please let me know.

    Tor itself is enough. It shows you as a gate you have exited Tor network, and Tor network itself is not "routable" from outside of it. So you can reach anything from Tor, but can't reach anything in Tor from outside. As logn as all your connections go thru TOR proxy. If you have an application that does not use or can't be configured to use Tor proxy all this is meaningless.

    You can use the combinations you describe, but keep in mind that the more hops your data has to make, the slower your connection will end up being. It's a tradeoff between better privacy and faster speed.

    Depends on how long you need to be totally private.
