I have been using TOR for over a year and this is the first time this has happened. I have check my clock and the setting seem accurate to me. I am not tech savvy. I have another computer hooked up to the same router and I'm able to connect with that computer. Any help would be appreciated. I see posts with log file and I don't even know how to find a log file.

  • This looks like a problem with the website you are visiting. Does this happen for all websites? e.g. check.torproject.org? If so, it's probably something like your anti-virus spying on your Tor usage to report it back to the company.

  • Yes it happens for all websites, even check.torproject.org . I am using Kaspersky Internet Security. I have had Kaspersky for the past two years and renew each year. No problems until about 2 weeks ago.

  • Sounds like that's a common issue, you need to tell kaspersky not to intercept encrypted comms for tor browser.

For me - Solved!

If you use Kaspersky Antivirus:

1) You can add firefox.exe from "Tor\Browser" path as a trust software 2) Kaspersky Options - Network Parametres - choose "Do not verify secured connections"

It should work.

  • I use Kaspersky Internet Security. I can not find under "Options" Network Parametres. Any suggestions?
