Hide IP Platinum - Proxy problems

I use Firefox and Thunderbird.

After installing Hide IP Platinum, and it working correctly for a while, it recently used an IP addeess in the United Arab Emirates.

Now, despite switching off, and then uninstalling Hide IP, my internet connection defaults to this proxy addess. It is so slow I always time out.

I have tried changing the settings in tools > connections, but it always defaults back to this IP address.

I have temporarily cured it by deleting Firefox and using IE6. (A clean reinstall of both FF 1.5 and 2.0 didn't work). I hate IE - for a start it crashes when you use the search feature on this forum, so I couldn't check if anyone else had this problem.

Any help appreciated.
