I have installed the latest stable verison for Windows but nothing changed.
Now I use Vidalia 0.1.14, Tor, Privoxy 3.0.6
Do I need use testing or unstable version?
P.S. Under Linux Debian I have such problem too, but some little than
under Windows.  There I use standart packages for Debian Lenny AMD64.
