Hi guys

I've got a problem where I cannot access the Internet at all whilst using any proxy add on (the two I have tried are zenmate and browsec). This is the same whether I use chrome Firefox or IE.

The error in chrome is something to do with unable to connect to the proxy server. Whilst in Firefox it says something about not being able to verify the security of the Web page.

I have no idea why this has started happening as I have previously been able to use them without an issue. I randomly turned my laptop on a few days ago and they no longer wanted to work!

I have tried messing with the settings in the browsers but as expected this would make no difference as it isn't a problem local to one browser. I've also tried disabling anti virus, no luck.

I have downloaded epic browser which has a built in proxy, It works but it loads some pages in a strange way.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Josh

It's all part of the price for trying to hide of the Net. :D

Try Control Panel>Internet Options>Connection tab>LAN button and take the tick out of "Automatically detect settings" then put one in the Proxy box. Click Apply and OK your way out then restart the machine. It just might work.

So I have unticked "automatically detect settings" and ticked "use a proxy server for your lan (these settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections".

is this correct?
