I'm using Tor Browser 4.0 in Windows 7 32bit. When I start firefox.exe (or click the Start Tor Browser link, which is the same) a firefox.exe process starts, but no window shows up and after some time the process has a constant CPU use of 0%. Any thoughts on how to fix this? (btw, I usually have the firefox web browser open.)
I get that problem behavior only occasionally, at which time I kill the process with task manager and restart TBB. (I also have never heard of Trusteer Rapport - unless that's the software that banks sometimes offer... and I nevertheless haven't installed it.)
This is very frustrating, I know. After two hours of deleting and downloading, here is the solution:
- right-click the .exe file
- Open "Properties"
- At the bottom, you will see a checkbox that says "this seems to come from another computer.." then check to allow the file to run.
- Tor starts.
