Every time since last night when I try to launch TOR I get "Tor exited during startup. This might be due to an error in your torrc file, a bug in Tor or another program on your system, or faulty hardware. Until you fix the underlying problem and restart Tor, Tor Browser will not start." Restarting TOR does nothing. It just keeps happening no matter what I do. How is this fixed?

  • What operating system? – cacahuatl Jun 20 '17 at 2:32
  • Windows 7 64 bit. It worked fine before last night. – Matt Gorman Jun 20 '17 at 2:34
  • Still happening. It goes to a big page that says the same thing but no way to make TOR work. Never connects. Sometimes it gives another error message after closing the TOR connection which I don't remember as I can't get that far anymore. – Matt Gorman Jun 20 '17 at 4:19

If you have edited the torrc file to open a port check this answer here

if not, you might have 2 copies of tor running in the same time (Tor + a tor service). To disable that open a command windows navigate to ....\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Tor and launch this command tor --service remove (it outputs nothing). Then try again to launch tor.
