  • I have the same problem. When I click to open Tor nothing happens. When I press "Alt, Ctrl, Delete" and open task manager Tor is not even running in the process page.

1 Answer 1


I experienced the same issue... deleted and downloaded twice before I discovered the problem.

  1. download the tor bundle

  2. right-click the application file

  3. At the bottom, click "Properties"

  4. You will see a notice that says "This program seems to have come from another computer.." click the box to enable.

  5. Now, double click the file, Tor install modal opens on screen.


  • Did this. could not find This program......etc still does not work
