I have the Tor Browser Bundle installed on my Desktop. Running 'Start
Tor Browser' as Administrator and User has the same effect. The mouse
will indicate it is working in the background for a moment, and then no
window opens. It also does not matter if I unpack the file as
Administrator or User. Microsoft Security Essentials has not indicated
that it blocked anything. I wish I had the Windows 7 CD so I could
create a Windows 7 Virtual Machine, but I do not.

When I open 'Start Tor Browser' I notice a new process begins
WerFault.exe (Windows Problem Reporting) and then closes, but I don't
receive any error notification or message. I haven't had this problem
with any previous browser bundle.
