Cannot access Tor at all, wont pass ‘’Connecting…’’ status!

Hi all, hoping you might be able to help me get back on track, have been inactive for a few months & suddenly when getting back to Tor I cannot access but only on the laptop i have always used exclusively, I tested Tor from another laptop & all good so im guessing its a configuration issue, I get the following messages :slight_smile:

Remove the Tor browser folder. Download a fresh copy from this site.
You never mentioned what OS so I assumed Windows.

The bridge (CEF149DCAC51153F1F3913C2D388478873542D3A) that you’re using is probably offline or it’s no longer around.

Disable using bridge in Tor Browser (Settings > about:preferences#connection > Remove all bridges) or get a new one, and try again.
