I cannot seem to access any onion site while on Tor. It was working fine about a week maybe a week and a half ago, then all of the sudden it just stopped connecting to any onion site at all. I have absolutely no idea what happened. I am not very good with computers so I am very curious and nervous about what happened (whether I did something wrong) and what I can do to fix it.

I would really appreciate some help with this matter. Also if please be patient with me if I ask stupid questions on how to fix it. I am afraid that I am not very tech savvy. Thank you for the help!

  • Can you access this hidden service: idnxcnkne4qt76tg.onion It is the homepage of the Tor project.

  • Alright. Since that link works for the rest of us, let's take a step back. I will assume you are using TBB (Tor Browser Bundle) on a computer. First, try to completely remove your TBB installation, deleting its folder. Then install it again in a new folder. Does it work now? It not, can you visit this page to verify Tor is working at all: check.torproject.org

    Check your computer clock and timezone settings.

    Did you update Windows to Windows 10? Tor and Window 10 was not working for me for some reason; had to downgrade back down to Windows 7.
