I installed and kept reinstalling Tor Browser to no avail. When I open the 'start tor' application, I get a window saying "Waiting for Tor to Start". Nothing happens at all. Here is what I tried:

  • Installing/uninstalling Tor

  • Killing the Tor process

  • Restarting and updating my computer

Things to note:

  • I use Windows 10
  • I use a VPN
  • I have ESET running
  • This sounds like your antivirus is preventing Tor Browser from starting the tor client process. Try disabling your antivirus and disabling your VPN.
