    Welcome to the Lounge drjfla

    In IE go Tools cog - Internet Options - under the Connections tab click on LAN Settings and ensure just the top radio button is checked and that the lower Proxy one is unchecked.

    It will be worth running an anti malware scan with something like the free version of MBAM as it's usually malware that can set up that Proxy.

    Did this occur after downloading anything or visiting a particular web site ?
