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

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.

Webroot is an Internet security company based out of Colorado.
The company, founded in 1997, offers Internet security programs for businesses and home users.
The Webroot Internet Security Essentials and Webroot Internet Security Complete programs include a firewall that's designed to monitor incoming data and filter out potentially unsafe data.
Consequently, Webroot does not recommend that you disable the firewall.
Nevertheless, if you want to use a different firewall or if the firewall is blocking legitimate data, disable it with a few clicks.

Launch the Webroot program.
Click "Edit Settings" under "PC Security" in the "Home" panel.
The PC Security panel opens.
Click the "Firewall" tab.
Check the circle next to "Allow All Traffic." The Webroot Firewall is now disabled.

After installing webroot comp applications does not work


There might be a conflict

Background b> Many personal computers connected to the Internet will more than likely eventually become infected with spyware, malware, viruses or Trojan horses. Such programs spread via spam, bad links or freeware. Once they invade your computer, they can do anything they want, such as disabling your antivirus software, tracking your keystrokes and deleting files. b> About McAfee and Webroot b> McAfee and Webroot are some of the most popular computer security programs. Both companies have features on their programs, such as firewalls and live scans, which prevent future infections. Computer owners, however, should never run two programs since they cause each other to crash. Only one antivirus program should be on a computer at once. b> Spyware Prevention b> Along with using computer security programs, computer owners can prevent infections by browsing the Internet with caution. They should avoid file sharing and ad-laden websites since such websites often harbor spyware. They should also avoid downloading anything without researching it beforehand use as safe a Web browser as possible. If you right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager under processes and the applications tabs you will see what is running and ticking over if you see something running that should not be select end now or even uninstall it or disable it Hope this helps

I don't believe it could do that, unless you have a firewall on it. If you have a firewall see if you can disable that and then if that doesn't work, you most likely should uninstall it because if it is going to create issues for you then you shouldn't use it.
