The best proxy software i've found so far is FreeProxy by HandCrafted Software.

You can get it from their site.

Install it on the machine you want to use as a proxy.

Next, run the "FreeProxy Control Center" through the Start-menu. Double-click on the first item called "Internet" (type Port).

Change protocol to "SOCKS 4/41/5 Proxy".

Make sure you check all three boxes under "SOCKS options".

Press Done. A security question will pop-up, just answer Yes. You will set a username and password next so nobody else from outside may use your proxy.

Double-click on "Users".

Select "Users", and click on Add. Type in some username and password and click Done, then Done.

Next, choose File/Save, Then click on Start/Stop and choose "Start FreeProxy as a Service".

This will install FreeProxy so it always start with Windows.

If you wish to run just for a session, choose "Start FreeProxy in Console Mode", then you can just turn it off when you're done.

That's it. Now just use SocksCap32 or something similar and run through your proxy!
