    Ok, say I install the latest Tor Browser Bundle (v3.5). The one they finally did away with Vidalia. Now lets say I drop to a command prompt and change directory to the installed directory of the TOR program software and execute tor.exe --install service thus installing a system service for TOR. Now lets say I get rid of Torbutton and Torlauncher and manually reset the socks host to port 9050 in the TOR browser. Can anyone tell me if I have caused any security issues for the TOR browser? I don't believe I have. I need some critical feedback.

    Thank you
