have installed Tor, the full pagage.
All seems to be rumming.

How I use the Tor surfing with MS Explorer etc?
Is there a setup like done with JAP, changeing the setup within MS Explorer etc?

Somehow Tor seems not to realize the use of a browser like JAP does.

Do you mean MS Internet Explorer?

If so, you probably shouldn't use that with Tor -- there are too many ways
to screw up your privacy at the application level.

(You probably shouldn't use it with JAP either, for the same reasons.)

We recommend Firefox instead. The Tor bundle even comes with a simple Firefox
extension named Torbutton that helps you toggle whether Firefox is pointing
its traffic through Tor.

Hope that helps.

Thank you, will look into Firefox.
But I still would be interessted to understand the setup for the Internet Explorer etc.

So if you give me some advice I would grately appreciate it.
