✔ Best Answer
Are you using Internet Explorer? If so go here:

From IE > Tools > Internet Options > Connections tab > Lan settings button.
Uncheck the box which says "Use a proxy server for your LAN".

Let us know how you get on. It raises a question about why it became set (if it is) so we will then need to then run a couple of free programs at least, just to see if you have some virus or malware about.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
