    I am quite a bit confused about something.
    When I go on the internet I can go to any site but one.
    It says that windows could not connect to proxy server.
    I have tried everything I could think of. I added it to trusted sites, reset the proxy, tried several commands and haven't gotten anywhere.
    Any thoughts?
    It won't pull up the particular site in IE or firefox, but it will pull it up on any other computer.

    Hi

    Can you post a link to the site here?
    Maybe it's something related to the site itself.

    This isn't ITunes by any chance is it?

    As Mike has said it could be a problem with the site itself. But you may also want to take a look here
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
    at a file called hosts
    see if there is any reference in that file to the site in question, if so edit it out and save the file. (may have to remove the read only attribute first.
    Regards and welcome to the forums dant.
