I cannot access the internet, except through a bootdisc (Spotmau).  I get a message that says the proxy server cannot connect.  The only help I can find says to "re-check proxy server settings and check to be sure my firewall is not blocking the connection".  I don't see anything wrong with the proxy settings.  Any suggestions out there?

hello and :welcome: do you use a proxy server? please try these steps

 

a) Under "Tools" in the browser tool bar select "Internet Options".

b In the "Internet Options" Window that pops up, click the "Connections" tab at the top.

c) Click "LAN Settings" near the bottom of the "Connections" section.

d) If the "Proxy server" checkbox is marked with a check, click it to deselect/uncheck it.

e) Click "Ok" to close the "Local Area Network (LAN) Settings" window.

f) Click "Ok" to close the "Internet Options" Window.

 

Now check if you are able to connect to Internet Explorer.

 

 

if that does not work, please check to see if you have a program installed on your computer by the name of sysTPL. if this is there, uninstall it.

also check yuour startup services for the process sysTPL.exe if it is there, disable it.
