This is a reasonably recent phenomenon: "Downloading proxy script" appears at the bottom of my screen following a period of inactivity on my Windows 10 desktop, meaning I have to restart it.  I wonder what causes it and whether there is any action I can take to remedy it?

I think this is related to a Windows update. I'm on Windows 7 with Chrome and have the same problem especially if I put the computer to sleep. The only way around it for me is to close the browser and restart.


I found this video. Will see how doing the change will affect me and will update. Edit: It seems to have fixed my issue.

I discovered the following thread and possible solution:



Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
Select Settings.
Click Show advanced settings.
In the "Network" section, click Change proxy settings. This will open the Internet Properties dialog.
Click LAN settings .
Deselect the "Automatically detect settings" checkbox.
