    Vidalia tries to connect to Tor Network for ~45 seconds to 1 minute and this message appears.

    Connecting to the Tor network failed (connection timeout)

    See attachment below. Because of this problem, I can't connect to Tor.

    Please help me.

    I guess I have to send it to you :)

    How do I successfully upload an attachment? Apparently I'm having trouble doing that.

    When I bootup Tails, I note that it takes usually 7-8 minutes for Vidalia to go green. That being said, don't you get a Try Again button when there is a connection timeout? And, if so, did you Try Again by clicking on the Try Again button?
