I hope I am in the right area here as I believe this is a Norton problem
At random times I get the following message while running M$ internet explorer.
"Common client network proxy server has encountered a problem and needs to close" it then apologizes for the inconvenience. I did have this problem a few months ago and I was directed to uncheck the box that states "Use a proxy server for this connection" (Tools - Internet options - connections - settings) I did this and the problem stopped, but now it is back and the box is still unchecked. I cannot find anything else that seems to sort the problem.
When looking at the information that is sent to Microsoft I have the following information.
SZ APPNAME: CCPROXY.EXE
SZ APPVER: 126.96.36.199
SZ MODNAME: PFMISC.DLL
Files included in the report back to M$
These files I believe are associated with Norton.
If anyone could give me some advice I would be grateful as it is driving me potty because you have to close down after it occurs.
