I running IE8 and run SUPERANTISPYWARE once a week, Avast running 24/7 and do a Scheduled scan twice a week. I'm running XP PRO .

Approx. once every 2 weeks I notice my IE won't access the internet. The fix is the same everytime, TOOLS / INTERNET OPTIONS / CONNECTIONS / LAN SETTINGS / Uncheck " Use a proxy server ".

Any suggestions and comments are appreciated.

Sorry if the question sounds silly, but are you
a ) manually setting the proxy and then the problem happens after two weeks, or
b ) the proxy setting seems to be checked automatically somehow, and the proxy setting is causing the interruption? or
c ) something else ..?
