Detecting proxy settings problem

Hi All,

I have a laptop here that when I open IE7, it hesitates for quite a white and in the bottom of IE7 it says "Detecting proxy settings", this happens before the homepage loads up.

It doesn't matter which site I use for a homepage, IE7 acts the same way.


How can resolve this?


Thanks in advance,

Heeter

What are your proxy settings configured as for your TCP/IP Properties? Are there other machines on your network that have this problem or just one?

Just this machine, all others light up IE7 very quickly.

I cannot find where the proxy settings were.

Go to the Control Panel, Internet Options.

Click on the Connections Tab, then LAN Settings

Proxy stuff should be there, compare to other PC's you have

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
