    I ran the automatic troubleshooter, and it says "The Configured Proxy Server is Not Responding."

    I also ran Malwarebytes, and while it did come up with a few trojans, nothing it did solved the problem.

    Gosh, I certainly hope I'm not being ignored because the answer is just so obvious...:frown:
