Why does it take my computer a long time to detect proxy settings?

Question by ?Kaylee?: Why does it take my computer a long time to detect proxy settings?

When I got into the internet it takes so long to load. Im pretty sure it has something to do with this proxy settings thing, becauseto the bottom left were loading/downloading/service information is for the browser and website it says “Detecting proxy settings”. It takes it at least 2 minutes to do this proxy detecting.

Once it’s done doing that the internet works fine, and it’s not slow at all. Im guessing it’s a setting or something . . . how do I stop this proccess or make it go faster?

You need to look at internet settings – if it’s set to automatically detect a proxy, and you’re at home and don’t have a proxy (that you know of) then this will take a while. Set this to ‘no proxy’ and hey presto.

    uncheck the proxy box in the internet properties/local area network setting/ and/or the automatically detect settings, some times it is needed sometimes not; try it with both

    go to internet explorer
    tools>internet options>connections>Lan settings>remove the check mark from automatic detect settings then click ok and ok
    You are done.

    Computer Slow

    Download and then run startup.exe (FREEWARE) at:

    http://www.mlin.net/startupcpl.shtml…...

    Can’t live without it and windows…

    Then disable and/or uninstall whatever u don’t need.

    Other things to try:

    1 – Disk Cleanup (removal of temp files, cookies, etc.)
    2 – Defrag
    3 – Registry Cleanup (CAN BE VERY RISKY!)

    FROM A HARDWARE PERSPECTIVE THE BEST AND MOST COST EFFECTIVE POSSIBLE UPGRADE (IN GENERAL) IS THE ADDITION OF MORE MEMORY (RAM).

    ALL ELSE FAILS – RELOAD YOUR O/S (WINDOWS) AND THEN REINSTALL ALL OTHER PROGRAMS YOU NEED/USE!
