Tor Trouble----Time Outs
Tor check web page and status box says Iím connected to Tor. I can access the regular Internet on Tor.

Iím using the latest stable Tor bundle to access the Tor network.

I canít access any .onion sites despite having:
1.Reinstalled Tor several times
ďExcellentĒ signal strength
Trying to access TorDir, Core.onion, Hidden Wiki, Duck Duck Go, and various other hidden services.
Switched identities uncountable times
Checking the computer clock time
Used Tor inside a virtual machine
Turning my computer on and off
Reloaded the pages literally hundreds of times.

Iíve visited .onion sites inside an XP virtual machine on my old laptop and know that most of the sites Iím trying to reach are online (e.g., Hidden Wiki) and can access the Tor network, but no .onion sites-----------So I KNOW somethingís wrong.

Every time I try to connect to an .onion site, the connection times out, but again, I KNOW somethingís wrong and am at my witís end. I havenít accessed a single .onion site once in the last few months.

So someone please help me if you can. I would really appreciate it.
