Protect from viruses or from being tracked? Viruses: MSE + Malwarebytes Privacy: Tor.

Just remember if you use a proxy to make sure it's safe.
I posted a link to a video a while back about JavaScript botnets that run through proxies.
Just running in the proxy with JavaScript on will infect your machine. If the owner of the proxy has a disclaimer on the server about it, then it's legal as well.

Proxies are a bad idea when you can just use tor which is much safer and easier.

Proxies are still a good idea, when used with proxychains. Being able to configure nmap, hydra, telnet, etc to run with the socks4/5 is nice. However for web browsing, tor is a great idea, as well as a vpn. Configure your settings to either You > VPN > Tor or the harder way of You > Tor > VPN
