Last year I was using TBB (on windows server 2003 32bits PC) for a
while and it was working perfect, suddenly it stopped working and the
logs said "DisableNetwork is set. Tor will not make or accept
non-control network connections. Shutting down all existing
connections...". At that time I just stopped using TBB and I checked
TBB frequently, one day, suddenly again, apparently with no change on
my computer or my network it started working again for a while but
right now I have the same problem as before, it stopped working again
and the logs said "DisableNetwork is set. Tor will not make or

Please consider using Whonix https://www.whonix.org/ instead of TBB.

It runs tor in one virtual machine, and your browser in another virtual machine.

Whonix is a much safer way to use Tor, since it isolates your OS from the clearnet better. It cleanly redirects all internet requests to Tor at one single point. TBB just can't do it quite the same way, and is more likely to leak requests into the clearnet.

All you need to do is to install and start VirtualBox, and add 2 Whonix virtual machines into it.
