Cloudflare blocks Tor connections.

I'm running Tor pretty much 24/7 now and Cloudflare keeps on flagging me down and telling me that I have a virus. I have allowed cookies and scripts but I still get flagged very frequently. This happens randomly but only when running Tor. It is extremely annoying and I would like a fix or workaround.

Why in the world would you be running Tor 24/7? I'm genuinely curious. It's so slow.

1. I don't like my ISP selling my browsing data.

2. I don't like websites knowing my actual location.

3. I have one of the shittiest connections in my town (~2MB/s down), so Tor isn't that bad (~ 300 KB/s).

4. When downloading big files, like steam or linux .isos, I turn off Tor.

For good measure:

Something like this is a much better alternative- https://www.goldenfrog.com/vyprvpn/vpn-service-provider as you can just set it up on your router (assuming it supports VPN's which most do) and then just be done. Yeah, $15/$20 a month is more expensive than free, but the performance difference would be massive.
