How do I disable the Web proxy server ?

Web Proxy servers help your ISP save bandwidth, however they often create problems for users, such as slow browsing and inability to connect to some secure servers.

To disable web proxy go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections tab > LAN Settings, and uncheck all boxes (proxy and auto detect).

For @Home users, in case the @Home software is installed, there is an additional step that needs to be done, (prior to everything else) to disable the Web proxy:

Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 -u ahiehelp.dll Note this step is only needed if you have @Home and their software installed.

Reboot might be required for changes to take effect.

This works but it does not hold. I have to go back into my internet options and click these every time I want to access the internet. Is there a permanent fix?>

There is probably some type of third-party software that you have installed (or malware) that modifies the setting.
