 security software or installing an older version of Tor. Can any one
 please provide more information or a better solution for someone not
 expert in using Tor and security combined on the net please? Will be
 highly appreciated since it seems to me that it may be better not to use
 Tor in this condition.
 > As far as I know there is no solution other than to remove the software
 that is interfering with Tor Browser. I know some Tor people are trying to
 contact Trusteer, but as a user of their software you should contact them
 as well (the may listen to their customers more than they listen to Tor
 Project people).

 I appreciate your comments. It would be great if you could give some
 advice or reference (blog, article?) as for the configurations that best
 suit a requirement for privacy and security for the common man who works
 and trades with leverage on the Net. For instance can I use some "software
 mix" that in the experience of the people in this community would be
 usefull and/or recommended considering commercial software like MS
 Windows? (for instance Win 10, Tor 6.5, and some security software that
 you already know is more reliable than Trusteer?) Or should I consider
 acquire more skills in the world of Open Source utilizing a mix like a
 Linux distribution, Tor x.x, something else to have a more secure, private
 use of web services and information?
 Best Regards!
