Hi! My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help!

In your search bar by the windows key, search for Internet Options. (This is also found in control panel)

Once you open Internet Options, go to the Connections tab then click on LAN settings.

UNCHECK use a proxy server. Click apply and OK.

Try your internet connection and let me know if it is still down.
