I have recently been banned from a popular marketing website because their anti fraud software detected that I was operating with an Open Proxy Server and I should contact my internet provider (Comcast).

 

In doing so I was given instruction as to how to configure my browser (Firefox) to "No Proxy".

This did not fix the problem.

Can anyone here help me get this Proxy closed?

Thanks

Please download MiniToolBox, and save it to your desktop and run it, and checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.
Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.
