Hey ,

Use TorButton and make sure you have installed Tor in your system.

Torbutton provides a button to easily enable or disable the browser's use of Tor. Torbutton provides enhanced privacy and browser state isolation features that make it more private and secure for Tor usage than any other general purpose proxy switching addon. It can also be combined with multi-proxy switching addons to provide Tor protection when the Tor proxy is selected, but please see the FAQ for important security information about filter-based addons such as FoxyProxy.

Check your windows firewall to make sure it is not blocking it. You can disable your windows firewall temporarily to see if that corrects the problem.

If not, make sure tor is running correctly.

Check if you have any other software firewalls which may be blocking the connection.
