I am trying to follow your instructions to remove Smart Protection 2012 from my computer.
I have followed the steps as far as unchecking the proxy server in LAN settings.
I'm still unable to connect to the internet - in the bottom right hand corner where the icons usually are there is only the time! My network connection icons aren't there. Not sure where to go from there (I'm currently using a different computer).
