Leztek, try Techinline Remote Desktop (www.techinline.com) Probably the best performance/price ratio from what I've seen on the market

Leztek, can you please explain what you're trying to achieve more clearly?

Are you talking about a secure connection just for general browsing?

The security of the connection from client to ISP is dependent solely upon the ISP, the protocols used etc. As an end user you have no influence over this whatsoever.

If you're trying to anonymise browsing then you need to use a paid for service or check out TOR.... It's easy to encrypt traffic on a closed network such as one created by a VPN, however the internet is an open network and cannot be surfed anonymously without passing the traffic to and from your computer through some kind of third party "cleaner".
