    I am a beginner really and got this message after eliminating (hopefully) a prgram called Antivirus Action from my computer. I can't get on the internet because I keep getting this message. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Open Internet Explorer. Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Lan settings > Proxy server > Advanced. Delete the proxy server settings under HTTP, HTTPS (secure) and FTP (and Socks, if any). Then, under Proxy server, uncheck all boxed.

    If running Firefox too, disable proxy server.

    One of my off-site employees reported having this problem. I googled information she specified in her note to me, and here was the answer! Phantom010's solution worked like a charm. Thank you for the help.
