Tor on flash drive won't run on other computers

I downloaded tor onto a flash drive using my ACER laptop and it works fine. When I try to run it from the same flash drive on my HP laptop it won't run and keeps saying 'The proxy server is refusing connections'.

I'm not a programming whiz so I looked online but the resolutions didn't help or I couldn't understand them.

What other information do you need to help?

Hi, thanks for letting us know.
Someone from the Tor Browser team should be able to help you soon.

pericles: Are the paths to Tor Browser on both computers the same? Does the problem go away if you delete the extensions.json file in your Tor Browser directory on your flash drive? (It should be located in path\to\torbrowser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Browser\profile.default)
