    Why do you want to use Tails? its probably the most boring linux distro ever + most windows compatible software don't run on Linux!

    But to do that you will have to make a bootable USB drive(RUFUS USB Loader does that)

    Then you would have to install the OS from the USB drive after fully formatting it.

    Just use a virtual machine if you want to go on tor on windows...simplest way since virtual machines can change mac and OS at a click of a button

    I take it you're a troll + I don't like the fact that you used "Dark Side"

    i am intrigued
    The deep web is real. The deep web is any part of the internet you need a password to enter, so I've been there.

    He said Dark Web, Not Deep Web

    Most of the websites there are illegal to even visit without TOR

    So, may I clarify, is it a crime to simply even visit the Dark Web (but without buying anything)?

    Simply an example, but say someone watches a snuff video or something, is that 'acceptable'?

    For example of the Drug Markets or Black Markets are usually not taken that seriously, Unless you buy from them. However Red Rooms and CP websites are taken very seriously.

    It's real; created by the CIA so that they could have an untraceable/anonymous form of communication, but in order to make it truly anonymous they had to make it public. It can be accessed through TOR, but because it's anonymous, this means that a whole heck ton of illegal stuff can take place and it's very difficult to catch the culprits. So if you decide to go exploring, be careful.
    Really? The CIA made it? That sounds like absolute *******s.

    The Dark web is merely the non indexed part of the internet e.g. how do you connect to a webpage if you don't know the address or IP?

    True, but you will draw a lot of attention to yourself if you do. Just watch some documentaries on it if you're curious.

    pretty sure it's not illegal to just browse, there's no laws stopping anyone from doing so. If you actually take part in any illegal activity on there that's a different story

    There are 3 parts of the Web.

    Surface Web: makes up 4% of the internet. It is everything indexed by search engines. That's Google, Facebook, wiki, reddit etc. This is what you think of as "the internet"

    Deep web: Not accessible from Google. Hosts hidden side of the internet. Includes whistleblowers, conspiracies, hidden chat rooms

    Dark web: The real dark part of the web. Well hidden at the bottom of the deep web. For example child porn, hitmen and silk road drugs.

    The last 2 are only accessible through TOR. From my own experience and that of others I would stay away unless you are a real techie and don't want to be mentally scared
    Also: private trackers, secret bulletin-boards, secure webcam feeds, webmail inboxes, and literally any other password-protected resource by default. To suggest that the 'deep web' requires Tor is incorrect; the term simply describes everything not visible to the public—as opposed to the 'dark web', whose contents are indeed restricted to VPN.

    It is not illegal to visit it and you most likely won't get into trouble as I said before, there are certain websites that will get you into trouble upon visit. Especially the FBI honey pots.

    What do you mean whether it's real? who even doubts that it is real? you can access it yourself you know. Get TOR, log in, voila.
