Thanks.  I read Case 1 & 2 - couple times (need a few more).
I gather the one with "more variables in my favor" is Case 2 - Using VPN to connect to Tor? That is the one (some) have said is definitely not good - yes? Still others may have said that VPN connecting to Tor, isn't as bad as some have indicated?

Observation:  There are a LOT of assumptions about VPNs & adversaries.
And they may / could be true.  Just sayin'.
The scenarios you describe, would almost seem to say (equivalent of): "Either of these is *full* of pitfalls, but since I'm gonna die if I don't do something, I can pick one (then pray)."

Reason I ask (about using Tor & *anything* else), is I need to do some legitimate, online research. Not political / terrorist issues, etc., nor anything socially taboo. But still something I don't want anyone looking over my shoulder.

And I'm not sure if using TBB by itself (in Windows) is "good enough."
