[WinError 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

Hello! I am having trouble uploading any files to Splunk using Add Data. This is the whole error message I am getting. 

HTTPSConnectionPool(host='127.0.0.1', port=8089): Max retries exceeded with url: /services/indexing/preview?output_mode=json&props.NO_BINARY_CHECK=1&input.path=access_30DAY.log (Caused by ProxyError('Cannot connect to proxy.', NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPSConnection object at 0x0000000004E3AB88>: Failed to establish a new connection: [WinError 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it')))

I have tried reinstalling, restarting computer, setting "Use a proxy server for your LAN" off on my Windows 7 Operating System, turning off windows firewall, clearing all my cookies, and tried uploading a few other files.

I entered "netsh winhttp show proxy" into my cmd prompt and received "Current WinHTTP proxy settings: Direct access <no proxy server>." I also entered netstat -an | find "8089" and the response is " TCP 0.0.0.0:8089, 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING".

I don't know if any of this is helpful, but if anyone is able to help I would greatly appreciate it. To the best of my knowledge, I'm not using a proxy server, but I don't really have any expertise in this area. I just want to upload a log file to Splunk.
