Reset your proxy settings
Proxy servers, or proxies, act as intermediary servers
between a Web browser and the Internet. According to Microsoft's website,
proxies are mainly used by networks in companies to enhance the security and
speed of their network connection.
Proxy servers can also be used to log Internet usage, mask
the network address of a server or to apply global restrictions to a network.
Internet Explorer is set to automatically detect proxy
servers by default.
You can reset the Internet Explorer proxy settings to their
default settings from the "Internet Options" configuration.
I have found the easiest way to do this is to add the menu to the top of a webpage.
Create the menu tab on your
homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar
options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and
Click on tools option then from the drop down list Internet Options
Select the "Connections" tab, and click the
"LAN Settings" button.
Delete the proxy server address and port from the
"Proxy Server" settings and clear the "Use a proxy server for
your LAN" check box.
Clear the check box beside the "Automatically detect
settings" and "Use automatic configuration script" options in
the "Automatic Configuration" section of the "LAN Settings"
dialog window. Click "OK."
Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save
these changes and close the "Internet Options" dialog window.
Close all Internet Explorer browser windows for these
changes to take effect.
