Use a Proxy With uTorrent

A proxy allows you to surf the Internet or use certain applications without worry. Websites, as well as programs, can install advertising spyware and adware onto your PC. This may cause your computer to run slowly or not be able to connect to various websites. With a proxy server address, you can use the Internet without other locations knowing your IP address. This will protect your computer from spreading information to undesired companies.
