First: I've never used Tor Browser or similar applications, so please forgive my noobness.
I'm pretty sure I've done everything correctly, but I still can't seem to connect. I've downloaded the newest version of Tor.
I've disabled firewall and my free Avast anti-virus. At least, I think I did. I'm not too sure how to check on that.
When I open Tor Browser, the small window opens while "trying to connect." However, I always get an error message "Could not connect to Tor control port." I'm not sure what I'm missing.
I'm running Win 7.
