Searching for proxy server. What does it mean?

I am trying to help my neighbour resolve a few PC software problems. Initially, there were no problems accessing the Internet via TalkTalk. But now a message appears at the bottom right of screen saying, ‘ Searching for proxy server’.
Does that mean there is a problem with TalkTalk server, or is it this lady’s PC?

For information, we installed the Smartax MT882, 512kbps, modem (Ethernet cable) last week.
All has worked OK until today.

OS is Win 98SE
