Vidalia/Tor Browser Bundle freezes on start -Windows XP SP3
Vidalia freezes when I launch Tor Browser Bundle with the latest version and reinstalling (re-downloading) has made no difference.
As I am back and forth between Windows and linux I cannot definitely recall if this happened on my Windows XP boot before updating to 2.2.35 but I think it did not.
I have read disabling automatic port selection may help this problem but I am unable to access Vidalia's settings as it freezes straight away with the progress bar at about 2/3% or so. Once I click somewhere else on my desktop the entire Vidalia window is 'whited out'.
To counter this I changed vidalia.conf to:
[General] BrowserDirectory=FirefoxPortable BrowserExecutable=tbb-firefox.exe LanguageCode=en
[Tor] ControlPort=9051 TorExecutable=.\App\tor.exe Torrc=.\Data\Tor\torrc DataDirectory=.\Data\Tor AutoControl=false
and I also added:
These measures again made no difference.
Is there a known solution, and until one is found is there somewhere I can download a previous version of Tor Broswer Bundle?
