    2 days ago I lost ability to access some internet sites (not all) in my favorites. I get the following message.

    No internet
    There is something wrong with the proxy server, or the address is incorrect.

    Try:

    ERR_PROXY_CONNECTION_FAILED

    I don't know what to do. Any thoughts?

    just a thought, this happened at times me using library computers. Check the date and time to see if its accurate. If it's not, setting it should fix it. With me I couldn't access Facebook until i switched computers with accurate date

    What version of Windows? What browser?
    Have you tried another browser? I usually have 3 or 4 browsers on every device to help me troubleshoot. That way I can tell if there is a problem with a site or my computer.
