When launching the Tor browser.exe, the following error message pops up:

Tor Browser does not have permission to access the profile. Please adjust your file system permissions and try again.

Any suggestions on what I should do?

  • Did you install the browser as the same user that you're trying to run it as? (Did you install it as the administrator?) – Richard Horrocks Apr 13 '16 at 21:26
  • Extract the tor browser bundle into some other partition than C: drive(drive that has installed your os into ). then open tor. For example, extract into E:\tor – Vishwa Mar 12 '17 at 13:29
  • What is your OS exactly? If its windows I suggest to use expert bundle and set socks to and I never used tor in Linux I should try it – Jafar UK Aug 13 '17 at 7:27
