win 98/proxy problem
Posted on 2000-03-11
Running win98/Internet Explorer 5.01.
For over a year I ran thru a proxy without problems. Suddenly, when I start IE it connects to the proxy but does not comeback to my home page (IP address). I get a message of page not found, and a message on the bottom bar that the prog is looking in C:\windows\system\schedule...and something else but closes to fast to read.
I have tried all the usual means, including checking all address, multiple attempts on vaious proxies, install of IE 5.01 upgrade - no help.
I can still connect and everything works fine as long as I do not use a proxy. but why now after all this time?
I think the prog is looking for something that has been whacked, but I can't determine what it is. Any help, hints, suggestions, even answers greatly appreciated. tia - larry
