 TimeForGoToBed thanks for this comment. Let's try to figure out what is
 going on in your case. I assume you are not getting any logs or notices
 that you can copy something to the clipboard? If that's the case then we
 might need to pursue a different road:

 Could you download the expert bundle and replace the `tor.exe` that comes
 with Tor Browser with the one that's in the expert bundle? The location
 for the one is:


 You find the `tor.exe` in your Tor Browser in
 torbrowser_base_dir\Browser\TorBrowser\Tor. Starting with the `tor.exe`
 from the expert bundle should pop up a console with messages from `tor`.
 Could you do that before you first start a freshly installed Tor Browser
 so that we can compare both logs (please add them to this ticket), one you
 get from a working Tor Browser and one from a broken one.
