Why after installing webroot on my hp pavilion with windows 7 I can not connect to Internet it says " unable to connect to proxy server" ?


The anti-virus has set up a firewall which has disabled your internet access. Go into your Webroot console and go to settings and firewall and set it to make an exception for incoming network connections.

Tip

Firewall Software Types


Viruses, worms, bacteria, rabbits, etc. are the different types of unwanted programs that infect computers and cause obstruction in normal operation. To avoid this and to protect your computer against infection and to ensure proper operation, install good antivirus software to detect viruses and remove or repair the damaged files virus. Software acts as a gateway firewall; the firewall is four different types. The gateway packet filtering, circuit gateway and proxy server level.The firewall is the firewall packet filters most basic. Packet filtering firewall filters incoming and outgoing packets of the machine based on user configuration. For example, the package contains information on the package. So if the user has blocked a port number or IP address of all packets from that port number or IP address will be removed. A firewall in the safety circuit when recording with TCP or UDP protocol is established between the host and network. At the level of the application firewall works at the application level. A proxy server is a type of relay server.The proxy server forwards this request to a server which in turn looks for the IP address and sends the appropriate proxy server. A proxy acts as a firewall between the machine and the network. You can adjust the proxy settings for their own purposes. And 'one of the most powerful desktop security mechanisms available for security. In addition, the firewall provides the security system can also be used to guide the installation of backup software. For a LAN or network packet's internal filter can be ideal. external networks, application gateways and proxy servers are a must. Prevents unwanted packets of data and content. So if safety is a concern not forget to install the latest firewall software keeps your computer from viruses and fully functional.

IE can't connect unless webroot is running. If the webroot firewall program is NOT running, IE can't connect to the internet!


Hi,
Can you confirm which software you are using, is this the home-user anti-virus/anti-spyware software or the corporate Desktop Web Proxy (DWP) web-filtering service?
Many Thanks, D Tribe

I have the same problem too..


If you can;t update your antivirus software try an online scanner (I like Bitefender,com) if you are unable to access the website try to access windows update odds are you will be blocked from that site as well.
Which means you have Win32.Worm.Downadup.Gen.
this worm spreads through your entire network so if you are sharing an internet connection disinfect all the pc's.
Removal is quite simple just follw this link (it is provided by Bitdefender)

I have the HERMO packard bell model. I can hardly access internet and the sound is not heard. Please hhelp


For internet
Resolution:
First check ipaddress
Click Start -run- type cmd hit enter for XP or Start -search-type cmd hit enter in Vista. On the DOS black screen after the blinking cursor type ipconfig hit enter check the ipaddress if are getting ipaddress other than (169........) it is proper ipaddress for e.g 147.14.48.478
Ping the default gateway e.g ping 147.11.445.478 if you are able to get packets send 4 received 4 loss zero is with Internet explorer or operating system.
If unable to ping or getting 169..... ipaddress . you are having static ip address
On the black screen at the blinking cursor type ipconfig /release hit enter
then type ipconfig /renew hit enter .check ip address
Ping default gateway then ping www.google.com if you are able to get packets send 4 received 4 loss 0. Try connect to internet using internet explorer or other browser. if still unable to connect then issue with firewall or antivirus or IE corruption .
Create new administrative account in XP and do MSconfig .Restart the system and logon to new account and try connecting to internet.
If issue persist might have to repair IE or operating system as it is software issue or virus issue.
You can connect a different computer if you have one and check internet.
If unable to get any ipaddress or still getting static ip address ,reset modem or check ethernet cable ,do a hard reset on the internet modem.Shutdown and restart computer and check ipaddress then try connecting to internet.

NO sound : Check the sound driver .Try reinstalling sound drivers

Laptops stopped connecting wireless


how about to reset your router and setup it the proper address by your internet provider..
laptops only connect to the router automatically if you enable it reconnect and detect its network without manually connect internet, this procedure can see in your wireless properties by enabling it.
And also ask your internet provider if theres a problem also with their internet connection.
Good luck!

Hi

I am assuming that you are using a router/firewall for your home network which is hooked up to your modem or probably a combo of both. First of all if the problem persists you have to make sure that your firewall / router is not blocking this IP. In order to check this out ...

1. If it is just this site that you are not getting: download a program called ultrasurf. Install and see if when you provide the IP above and get the website to come in. I checked the website for you and it is online and working. So it is a local problem.

2. If it is all the sites you're not getting and you know how to configure your router, I would give it a go and reset it.

3. FInally: you have to add this site to the exceptions of your firewall so that he lets it throughOnce you have determined which one of the 2 problems is yours. Add the site to the exceptions of your firewall so that you don't stay using ultrasurf for browsing that site. By the way use google to look up the program i mentioned :)

I hope that I was of help to you :)

Proxy sever


A server that sits between a client application, such as a Web browser, and a real server
. It intercepts all requests to the real server to see if it can fulfill the requests itself. If not, it forwards the request to the real server.


Proxy servers have two main purposes:

# Improve Performance: Proxy servers can dramatically improve performance for groups of users. This is because it saves the results of all requests for a certain amount of time. Consider the case where both user X and user Y access the World Wide Web through a proxy server. First user X requests a certain Web page, which we'll call Page 1. Sometime later, user Y requests the same page. Instead of forwarding the request to the Web server where Page 1 resides, which can be a time-consuming operation, the proxy server simply returns the Page 1 that it already fetched for user X. Since the proxy server is often on the same network as the user, this is a much faster operation. Real proxy servers support hundreds or thousands of users. The major online services
such as America Online, MSN and Yahoo, for example, employ an array of proxy servers.


# Filter Requests: Proxy servers can also be used to filter requests. For example, a company might use a proxy server to prevent its employees from accessing a specific set of Web sites.



A proxy server receives a request for an Internet service (such as a Web page request) from a user. If it passes filtering requirements, the proxy server, assuming it is also a cache server , looks in its local cache of previously downloaded Web pages. If it finds the page, it returns it to the user without needing to forward the request to the Internet. If the page is not in the cache, the proxy server, acting as a client on behalf of the user, uses one of its own IP addresses to request the page from the server out on the Internet. When the page is returned, the proxy server relates it to the original request and forwards it on to the user.

To the user, the proxy server is invisible; all Internet requests and returned responses appear to be directly with the addressed Internet server. (The proxy is not quite invisible; its IP address has to be specified as a configuration option to the browser or other protocol program.)

An advantage of a proxy server is that its cache can serve all users. If one or more Internet sites are frequently requested, these are likely to be in the proxy's cache, which will improve user response time. In fact, there are special servers called cache servers. A proxy can also do logging.

The functions of proxy, firewall, and caching can be in separate server programs or combined in a single package. Different server programs can be in different computers. For example, a proxy server may in the same machine with a firewall server or it may be on a separate server and forward requests through the firewall.
