ERROR PROXY INTERNET EXPLORER


Google Chrome's connection settings and security settings are controlled by Internet Explorer's settings.

It appears by your error statement, that the Proxy Server settings in Internet Options has been changed to by pass the standard default of No Proxy Server. Sometimes Email Anti Spam Software can change this.

This should fix you up regarding the Proxy issue:

1. Click on Start and click on Control Panel.

Depending on your control panel view of Categories or Classic View:
1. Look for Network and Internet Connections category then Internet Options.
3. If in Classic View, double left click on Internet Options.
4. When Internet Properties opens, click on the Connections Tab and then the button LAN Settings near the bottom.

If the option to Use A Proxy Server... is checked then un-check it and click OK. Click OK again and re-open Google Chrome and see how it responds.

Let us know if you have further issues by using the "add a comment" link.

Thank you.

Recently I upgraded Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 to Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 and I am having problem with my Real Player, not able to download any program. So I wanted to uninstall Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 so that I can install back Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, but I can't do it. It looks like I am stuck with Microsoft Internet Explorer 9. Please help


Windows Internet Explorer 9 has been installed as a system update in the operating system, and as such can be removed from the Uninstall an update control panel menu.
To get there click the start orb in the lower left corner of the screen, and then Control Panel in the right menu.
Locate Uninstall a program in the Control Panel and click on the entry.To uninstall Internet Explorer 9 click the View Installed Updates link in the upper left corner of the screen. This opens a listing of Microsoft updates that have been installed on the computer system.
Right-click on Windows Internet Explorer 9 and select uninstall from the context menu.
To complete the uninstallation, the computer needs to be restarted in the end.
After restart ur pc Run reginout cleaner to clean it's registry files
