Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

1 Answer

"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).

Does anyone have any advice on what causes it?

Thanks

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.

Proxy setting 130


Exactly error: "Unable to connect to the proxy server
A proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary between your computer and other servers. Right now, your system is configured to use a proxy, but Google Chrome can't connect to it.
Here are some suggestions:
If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or check with your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working.
If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server, try the following steps: Go to Wrench menu > Options > Under the Hood > Change proxy settings > LAN Settings and deselect "Use a proxy server for your LAN."
Error 130 (net::ERR_PROXY_CONNECTION_FAILED): Proxy server connection failed."

I'm getting redirect when trying to go from a seach results. I'm sure its a virus. How do I get rid of it?


Usually this is due to malware changing your proxy settings.
GOTO....
control panel / internet options / connections / lan settings.
Check that the use proxy server settings have not been changed. I dont use a proxy server, so for me it should be unticked. If it is ticked, untick it.
Now follow this guide

Generally, in this case, you won't be able to access the internet at all, is this your symptom?

Go to start or windows logo,>settings in windows xp and/or control panel>internet options>connections>LAN settings> and uncheck use proxy server for your LAN.

Apply, and okay.

Close your internet browser and reopen it.

Web pages won't load, but internet connection is fine.


Check the Proxy settings in the LAN Connection area.

Here is a document which provides information on the Proxy Settings. You should have NOTHING in the proxy settings. I suspect that you have something that is wrong.
