The Proxy Server Is refusing connections

Posted

When I try to go to google, it says the proxy server is refusing connections. I do go to the Firefox button, click on Help, go to Troubleshooting Information, click on Reset Firefox, but it doesn't work still. I also can't go on Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.
