Connection refused by peer (Win 7 SP1 x64)
I've googled for this error message but have not found a single solution (!). I have installed and re-installed the latest Vidalia bundle (without the Tor browser) and every time I try to connect I get this message:
"Vidalia was unable to connect to Tor. (Connection refused by peer.)"
When checking the logs (under Advanced, there's nothing under Basic) everything seems okay. Here's from the log:
Dec 01 !10:39:09.159 [Notice] OpenSSL OpenSSL 1.0.0e 6 Sep 2011 looks like version 0.9.8m or later; I will try SSL_OP to enable renegotiation Dec 01 !10:39:09.709 [Notice] We now have enough directory information to build circuits.

So is there an easy way of getting around this problem, or should I roll back to a previous release?
FYI, I'm on a Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 X64 machine using Windows Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials. I had no problem with Tor before I reinstalled Windows a few days ago (don't remember what version I used then, though). I remember having some initial problems earlier (not the same one, though), which had a simple solution - I was helped solving it through a ticket such as this one (can't find it now, though).
