    I used a VPN in China because several things are blocked without it. Now I'm back home in London and my PC still thinks it needs VPN because it won't open up any page what so ever without it!

    Does anyone know what's going on?

    PS I use Windows 7

    Did you uninstall the VPN software? You may also want to check you Internet Options in the Control Panel and look under the Connections tab. There's a button there for LAN settings, disable any of the proxy settings there, uncheck everything. Also check that you are not using DNS settings that are no longer valid. Set your Ethernet and wireless connections to automatic as shown in the screen shots here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/change-tcp-ip-settings#1TC=windows-7
