I want to uninstall TOR but I can't find it. It's not listed in Control Panel - Programs and Features. None of the explanations I've read work. It's still on my computer somewhere because at odd times, when I try to use a url for a web site, the screen goes black and a garbled string of characters appears in the address bar. Any suggestions as to what I can do do to help me find it will be greatly appreciated.
Tor Browser does not get installed in the way that most programs do, so it doesn't appear in "Programs and Features". You can simply delete the "Tor Browser" folder to remove/uninstall it.
Removing Tor Browser from your system is simple:
- Locate your Tor Browser folder or application. The default location is the Desktop.
- Delete the Tor Browser folder or application.
- Empty your Trash.
Note that your operating system’s standard "Uninstall" utility is not used.

This sounds like something unrelated to Tor Browser. You should make a new post with a screenshot and more details, and maybe someone will be able to help with that issue specifically.
