"use a proxy server for your lan (These settings will not apply..
I have had different users not be able to load webpages in Internet Explorer due to the setting "use a proxy server for your lan (These settings will not apply to dial-up or vpn connections)" being enabled under the connection tab in Tools, Internet Options.
I can have people go in and uncheck the box easy enough, but I haven't come across what causes it (it's usually occurring on a Windows Active Directory domain).

I assume you find this in Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN. This proxy server setting is only used when you are working through a network at a school or company. You need to have the checkmark next to "automatically detect settings" if you work through most broadband connections like cable or DSL. Now, if you have the "automatic" checked and the Proxy check appears anyway, this must mean that you have some program that is trying to connect to some network or call home somehow. This could be a virus. Do you have a good AV program? Be careful because many of the websites that say they want to check your system are actually virus downloaders.
