Specs: Windows 7, 2.10Ghz/3 GB
Windows 7 Home Premium
TOSHIBA
32-bit O/S
3GB RAM
AMD Sempron(tm) SI-42 2.10 GHz

I keep finding myself unable to access the internet and found the problem and how to temporary fix it, but it is driving me nuts as it keeps happening

I have to keep changing the LAN Settings in Chrome (IE11 is aslso on Laptop, but it’s a pain), for some reason it keeps automatically changing from “Automatically detect settings” to “Proxy server use a Proxy Server for your LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or vpn connections)”

Once I go in and manually change it, it lasts for a while then changes back I know when it happens and I have to reset it again, as I cannot access the internet, any help most welcome.

Have Run - Avast, MalwareBytes and ADWCleaner, nothing, have tried last good configuration and nothing new has been added or modified?

✔ Best Answer
Make sure that you are changing is as administrator.

Hi guapo

I am the administrator of the Laptop I have a Guest account, but that is never used.
It sound daft, but how would I go about changing the settings as an Administrator, if I already log in as the Administrator?

Sorry if this is rather confusing, but its driving me nuts,

Also and it may be related, but every now and again I am having problems with the DNS Server, it will not load the web page, I will post the message it gives me when it happens again as I can't recall the exact message at the moment, it has took me almost an hour to get in here,

Its not the router or the ISP (Virgin and the router is crap) as the wife gets online no problem, but it does drop out every now and then,

Thanks In Advance

Toby

Windows acts funny when it comes to the administrator account. I can have user guapo with administrator privileges but it's still not the same as true administrator. On Home Premium machines you can run from a command prompt:
net user administrator /active:yes to create a true administrator account. Then create a password for it.

Hi guapo

Thanks for the link, it looks like a handy site to have bookmarked.
I have set up an Admin account and changed the LAN settings as an Admin, so its just a matter of waiting to see if it works.

Hopefully you will not see me on this thread again

Thanks for all your help

I have PREMIUM W7, the solution does not apply to it. So I have the issue and can´t even test the proposed solution :(

Hi
For some reason it has rectified itself?
I tried the above suggestion, however it kept jumping back to Proxy Settings.
I did a Google Search, it seems to be a more common problem than I first thought.
I just persevered with it, then out of the blue, it has stopped jumping to the Proxy settings (You know what will happen now :-)

Sorry I can't be more helpful in solving this problem and best of luck to everyone who is in the same situation.
