Question by Ghoul808: What does it mean if my internet started working after i disabled the proxy server?
My Internet wasn’t working and i couldn’t find out the problem, but then i read something that said to disable the proxy server and i did, and my Internet is working faster than ever… did i do something that i should be aware of? because i don’t even know what a proxy server is.

You probably have a malware infection, the proxy settings are a very common target of malware.
A proxy server is a secondary server that some people will choose to use to either mask their internet usage, or to provide secure access for a workplace. Unless you know what a proxy server is, these should be disabled.
