I have reset this machine to not use a proxy server over and over and over; but, it keeps coming back to "Use a proxy server . . .". and "Page cannot be displayed".

This connection does not/cannot use a Proxy Server.

Additional information:

I just now found this setting in the Registry at:
HKEY_USERS> S-1-5-21-1266249176-2499705482-3544135198-1000> Software> Microsoft> Windows> CurrentVersion> Internet Settings> (See attached image)

I blanked the setting and it came back all on its own.
