proxy server

Last Update: November 03, 2014

I wanted to just post this little blog about the pas two days of problems on my computer.

I am so knew at using computers that I just didn't know what could have been the problem. It is 12:33 pm Monday November 3rd and I just got the problem solved. Any way I tryed to get into my mail from FireFox and got a "cannot connect to server." Whatttttttt? What is this thing talking about? I tried to get to Wealthy Affiliate. Same box came up. WOW! I am in a heap of ?????????. So I went to Crome. Same result. I downloaded an advanced security thing that cost me 49.99 and it said it cleaned out 23 bad stuff. One I had heard of before was Trojan. OK. Back to work right? No. same message. Man I didn't know what to do. Chrome said to go to some kind of setting and change "server settings." Change to what? How do you get to settings? What is a "server setting?" Plus. What do you do with it after you find it.

Hey friends. I know I sound "Dumb" but I Don't Know. A little while ago I called my Internet provider and got to talk to "George." George of course is an Ip person. A Trouble shooter. And I was very impressed with the service I got. George worked with me for about an hour and walked me through the hole process of resetting a server.

I won't go into any more details. I just thought this experience was worth sharing with my fellow Wealthy Affiliate friends and family.

Happy Trails Ya'll..................Frank

Thanks Barry. Right you are. This can be a mine field. And watch these download exec. Most of problems came from viruses piggy -backing on download exec.
Happy Trails Barry, and To Your Great Success.............Frank

Hey Frank,
I'm happy to see that you got your issue resolved. You might want to have your computer looked at by tech just to be sure there isn't anything else on your computer. Proxy Server malware can be a major head ache and difficult to get rid of.

Those kinds of problems drive me crazy. And they are so time consuming. Glad the internet provider was able to help.
