I installed Tor Browser to see what all the hype was about and now my computer is fucked.

I can’t reboot the computer, it won’t load. It sits on the apple gray screen for hours. Everything worked fine before I installed Tor.

I removed Tor Browser with App Zapper and it still won’t boot. I’ve been to the apple store and the genius bar checked everything and the hardware is fine, its a problem with the OS.
