Windows 7 SOCKS proxy doesn't work

If I set up a SOCKS proxy using PUTTY the same way I did in Vista, it doesn't work. I let PUTTY through the firewall, I have no ideas besides that.

Settings: PUTTY/Tunnels: D8080
Explorer/Chrome: proxy:

These setting were fine under Vista, but nothing loads in Win7 :(

I am sorry, if this problem has been discussed before, but I did not find any information on this topic in the forum (or on the net).


It turned out, that I was not careful enough when applying settings, the socks proxy had to be set separately in the advanced section. Since then it works fine.
