New to Tor. I've had it before on an old laptop with no issues but I recently installed it on my desktop and haven't been able to run it. I've tried reinstalling and disabling all firewalls and antivirus programs but I still get the same message which is: "Could not connect to Tor control port". When I try to copy the Tor log to the clipboard through the Tor program it says there's nothing to copy even after I try connecting and get the error message.
I've looked everywhere online and I haven't seen any solutions that have worked. I don't know how to see if the port Tor uses is free or not. I've tried using the command prompt command "netstat -an |find /i [portnumber]" but it says my find is improper format despite it being correct from everything I've read about it.
Anyways, any help resolving the "Could not connect to Tor control port" error message would be very much appreciated.
