RE: Proxy Authentication
I get this problem on my XP machine sometimes also. Open Internet Explorer
and go to the option menu and click the connections tab. Then go to the LAN
settings and make sure the "Use a proxy server..." is not checked. Also, make
sure you don't have it selected to automatically detect network settings.
There may be something on the network causing it to think there is a proxy.
With this not selected, it won't check.
