I need help with proxy server settings, I can get on the internet with firefox and I can download with my bittorrent downloader, but IE and Chrome both tell me they can't connect to proxy server, I wouldn't mind this so much but firefox eats up so much memory that it seriously bogs down my admittedly already very slow old computer. Firefox frequently show a usage of 150,000 to 250,000 and has been as high as 400,000k on my task manager,  I don't remember ever seeing IE or Chrome using that much menory,

   I tried going to internet options / connections /Lan settings and unchecking the box for 'use a proxy server' I also downloaded Minitoolbox and ran it to reset IE proxy settings, I still can't get on with IE or Chrome.   Does anybody have any other suggestions how I can fix this issue?
