    I did have Tor for my Web Browser but after say 5. Days I would go back to it and after it opened it would Tell me it can not connect to the Network.

    I would then Un Install it and Re Install it and go though all the Settings again and the same thing would go on.

    Is there another Browser like Tor?

    How do you reinstall it? Do you use another browser to get to the Tor Browser and download a fresh version?

    Found this on the Tor site..... it may or not help.

    QUICK FIXES
    If Tor Browser doesn’t connect, there may be a simple solution. Try each of the following:

    • Your computer’s system clock must be set correctly, or Tor will not be able to connect.
    • Make sure another Tor Browser is not already running. If you’re not sure if Tor Browser is running, restart your computer.
    • Make sure that any antivirus program you have installed is not preventing Tor from running. You may need to consult the documentation for your antivirus software if you do not know how to do this.
    • Temporarily disable your firewall.
    • Delete Tor Browser and install it again. If updating, do not just overwrite your previous Tor Browser files; ensure they are fully deleted beforehand.
    IS YOUR CONNECTION CENSORED?
    If you still can’t connect, your Internet Service Provider might be censoring connections to the Tor network. Read the Circumvention section for possible solutions.

    After I un Installed Tor I have the Tor .exe File here from before.

    So I Click on it and Re Install Tor and yes I set t as my Default Browser.

    And it works for say 5. Days or so then it says it can not Connect to the Tor Network.

    Instructions from the Tor site says.....
    so you should delete everything and download a fresh copy...... don't use anything from a previous download.
    There could be a corruption in the previous download.
