detecting proxy settings

  goose1984 17:36 30 Jul 2006

When ever I use Internet Explorer I get a message "detecting proxy settings" which causes a delay of up to a minute before navigating to the web site. Any subsequent IE activity is fine after the initial delay.

I do not have a proxy server and I have already checked the LAN settings in IE and nothing is ticked.

Any other ideas

I get the same thing from time to time, but never as long. Are you using Zone Alarm as a firewall? That seems to use (loopback) as part of its process and causes delays.
