Please provide a lot more information: How specifically you are running Tor (Live Mode is recommended); what error messages are you receiving: is your computer successfully get an ip address; can you ping and traceroute a remote site; what search engine are you trying to use; and the like. The more and more detailed information you provide, the easier it will be for others to help you.

There's plenty of info in the OP. The key is, whenever you have a problem described the way you have described it, it means you have to do something.

You have been cloned to Tor..

Have you checked DNS settings? Are you able to ping duckduckgo.com or other search engine?
