I have a HP laptop that was not used for 3 months.  I cranked up the laptop and began using the Explorer and everything worked great.  I than updated Windows with several updates and my browsers stopped working.  The computer shows that it's connected to the internet through my wireless router but no browser will find a website.  I also tried to connect through a network cable to the router and still the browsers would not connect to any websites.  I tried to go back to a restore point from several months ago but that made things worse, several files could not be found on start up.  Original error message said the system could not find a proxy server for the connection.


System: Windows 7

Browsers: Explorer 9 and Chrome


Any suggestions?

Ok if you're using internet explorer, please go to tools-internet options. Once there please go to connections-lan settings.Make sure that all of the boxes are not checked if you're not using a proxy. Then save the changes if any were made and try to surf again.
