Description

I was using tor with no special settings (default settings), for a while,for a home internet service, but since 2 weeks ago I see tor stops at "establishing an encrypted directory connection" in the process of starting tor.

The message log is here:

Sounds like you have a really old version of Tor. I recommend an upgrade. (Since you're on Windows, I assume your best bet is to use the Tor Browser Bundle.)

I tried tor-browser-2.2.39-5 which is said to be the newest one, but it still has exactly the same problem.
I have found out something: I used to connect to internet using exactly the same tor, in another place, which has a different internet provider. Dose it mean that my ISP is blocking tor for me? What should I do then? However right now it is not working even in that place.
The message log after using new version is here:

If you try 0.2.3 and 0.2.3 doesn't work, this seems like censorship -- others can help you more there, including the support team.

Any news here? I don't think this is a bug report we can do anything with, at least so far.
