Customer Question

I use Windows 7 OS with a VPN. LAN connection to internet. I also use Tor with bridge and proxy. I do not go "deep" or do anything illegal. I live in the U.S.
Someone in my apartment building is able to shadow my internet browsing. I know this because I have heard my private world discussed by people here where I live.
I am not liked by anyone for various reasons, and they are trying to tell my I have no privacy.
This may sound paranoid, but I have lived with this for some time.
My question: Must I stay vulnerable, or can I do more to secure my internet world.
I don't know what to use for email privacy that works with Tor.
