    Here's my guess...One of the bad things that viruses and other malicious
    software like to do to your computer is to add a proxy to re-route your
    internet traffic. Good security software (anti-virus, anti-spyware,
    firewall, etc.) will stop this from happening. Therefore, I would take a
    good look at the settings in my security software to see if this is
    what's preventing you from adding a proxy server.

    Are you able to identify the security software on your computer? I can't
    do that from where I'm sitting. Hopefully a knowledgeable friend can sit
    beside you and help you.

    We can not seem to find any kind of visable security software just a windows
    fire wall.
