2. Incorrect proxy settings on internet explorer: If your using Internet Explorer 7 or 8, try updating or disabling your proxy (if you have permission). • Press ALT+T or click on the Tools menu in Internet Explorer.

• Select Internet Options from the menu and click the Connections tab on the dialog box.

• Click the Lan Settings button and uncheck the Proxy Server check box.

• After changing the proxy setting don’t forget to reboot the system.
