What should I do ?

Running TOR on a Windows system is always a risk, if you really cure about your anonymity.

I can perfectly understand that you could be obliged to use Windows due to your work, but consider that with this operative system you will never be able to deeply control what the system is doing and if all the doors are actually closed.
If you want to really browse the web anonymously and maybe have a look to the deep web, I would suggest you to install Linux (e.g. Ubuntu or Lubuntu, depending of how young/old is your computer) ; you can do this without removing Windows, but just doing a partition of your disk while installing: your Windows part will not be afflicted and you will be able to browse the web in a secure way.

About risks and configuration, I would suggest you to read this quick help on the forum viewtopic.php?f=4&t=21285

Coming back to your problem, other people experienced troubles with TOR 3.6.3 (e.g. some websites have some features blocked) and it is a problem of socks, I guess.

Have you the same troubles with TOR 3.6.2 ?
