Tor won't start : "Could not connect to Tor control port"

I've been trying to use Tor, I installed the full package with firefox included, but every time I try to start it I get the same pop-up error message : "Could not connect to Tor control port"
In the meantime I can use firefox with no Internet issues.

Actually I re installed it, and after a reinstallation it works fine. The problem is that the next time I try to use Tor, I need to make another new installation...

I tried to install it in several folders, desktop, non system partition... It's the same.

Is there a way to fix that please?

Thanks for your help!

System : Windows 7 Starter SP1, 32 bits
Tor version : up to date with firefox included

Hm. Does restarting the machine fix the problem? I wonder whether there is something not properly shut down when you are closing Tor Browser.

Looks like a general firewall/etc issue.
