Hello all. My mother-in-laws computer is having the "The proxy server isn't responding 188.8.131.52:8800 server" problem. I've tried to uncheck the use proxy server box under internet options, i've tried running cmd.exe as admin and the command "netsh winsock reset" followed by a reboot, and i've tried uninstalling IE 11 and then re-installing it through download from another pc onto a flashdrive. here's a screen shot for specifics. I can't seem to figure out what to do next besides re-installing windows 7. I also don't understand why ipconfig /all depicts everything be correct settings wise. I'd prefer to figure it out though as there's quite a few photo's and games my mother-in-law has installed, plus it would be a great learning experience if i can fix the network problem...whatever that may be as i'm out of idea's at this point. EDIT: I can however ping websites and get replies with no lost packages. 40-45ms response times. So i can access....yet can't. EDIT2: After re-installing IE 11 it seems windows can still itself use the internet as it downloaded updates for IE 11 no problem. Still have the problem after these updates.
