A network proxy acts as an intermediary between a local network (such as all devices within the building or in a company) and the internet. It offers an additional layer of security, privacy and performance enhancement on devices when connected to a Wi-Fi connection or Ethernet connection.

To set up a proxy on Windows 10 you can either use the settings app or manually edit your configuration. If you’re using the Settings app, choose Proxy under Network & Internet. You can skip this step in the event that the Use a Proxy Server option is already off. Otherwise, enable the switch and enter your proxy server address and port information.

You might be asked by an IT administrator to make use of the Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Protocol script (WPAD) in the event that you use a Proxy in a school or work environment. This method is more reliable than a manual configuration.

You should also deactivate any third-party programs that may interfere with or alter your network settings. This includes antivirus, VPN, and firewall programs. This is especially helpful if you receive an error message stating “Windows did not recognize the Proxy settings for this network automatically.”

If all else fails then you can try a system reset. This will delete all programs and drivers installed since the restore point was created and allow your system to reinstall default settings. Hopefully, this will clear the problem and allow you to connect to the internet without having the error message alicehopper.review/data-room-mergers-and-acquisition appearing.
