If you’re seeing the “Windows could not find the settings for this network’s proxy” error the first thing to do is restart your router and computer. This will close any open my site applications and reset the proxy settings to their default setting and should resolve the issue for the majority of users.
If this doesn’t work, you can also disable any antivirus software, firewall, or VPN software that might interfere with your Internet connection. You can disable each application through the settings and removing it one at atime. After you have disabled all of these apps, you can try reconnecting to the Internet and see if the problem persists.
If none of these solutions solves the issue then you may need to perform a system restoration. This will restore the default network settings and also remove any other changes that might be creating the problem. This can be done by going to the Control Panel and then clicking on “Internet Options.” Once you’re in this window check the boxes marked Automatically detect settings and use a proxy server to connect to your LAN. This method only affects the current user account. If you are using a shared computer, you might have to repeat the procedure for other users. You can deactivate proxy settings by using the Registry Editor. However this method is more complex and could lead to issues in the future.
