Is there a benefit to getting track eraser and anonymous surfing internet security software like GhostSurf Platinum ? Is it really worth the money and do they provide adequate protection?

Just a personal observation but if you have bad surfing habits you will pickup bugs no matter what you do. If not then the standard AV, firewall, AdAware and SpyBot will take care of you. But, if you have an extra $50 bucks why not!

Anonymous surfing tools like GhostSurf use protocol tunneling to bypass ISP and firewall recording of the websites you visit. There are free anonymous hubs to use as proxy servers, and in any case, unless you have at least a dsl line it would probably slow down your surfing experience with a dialup.

Tracking cookies are always a problem to privacy.

There are some free privacy tools that can erase your index.dat files and others to shield your identity - benefit cost depends on how paranoid you are vs whether you can control your own surfing habits.
