Frequently Asked Questions - proxy error
Here you will find questions and answers to common spyware topics.
I had the error "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy". I had trouble with that. I ran the virus and malware check, found both, and removed them from the computer but I still can't connect to the internet with IE.
Have you checked your proxy settings in Internet Explorer? Sometimes malware items will change your proxy settings making it hard to get a normal connection to the internet. Since your scanning software found some malware there is a good chance that your proxy settings were changed and need to be set back to the way they were. In Internet Explorer go to Tools and then Internet Options and click on the Connections tab. From there click on the LAN settings button and make sure that the box under Proxy server is not checked. Sometimes you may want to check the box that says Automatically detect settings depending on your configuration.
