I have got a peculiar problem. I try to use Tor 5.0 with Windows 7. When I start Tor a Tor circuit is established and the Tor homepage shows up. Yet, I am unable to browse the web, as no webpages seem to load (not even the Tor update page). Disabling my firewall does not help. I am able to run Tor with Tails, so my there seems to be no problem with internet connection or provider.

The Tor log-file seems fine to me:

[notice] Tor v0.2.6.10 (git-cab52fe998909e08) running on Windows 7 with Libevent 2.0.21-stable, OpenSSL 1.0.1p and Zlib 1.2.8.

I am totally clueless, how to solve this problem. So, if anyone could give me a hint or point me to where I could find some help, I would be very grateful.

Uninstall / reinstall Tor change the DNS addresses Use Proxy port 9050 & Adress 127.0.0.1

it works for me

This is proper operation report

Advanced Onion Router v0.3.0.20

Click "Connect" to connect to the OR network.
These are the proxy settings you can use:
    Address: 127.0.0.1
    Port: 9050
    127.0.0.1:9050
Use "Intercept" to be sure that your proxy settings are always used.
