  • Solution was to do the OPPOSITE -  The "automatically detect settings" box was NOT checked so I checked it. 

    Method 2: Disable the "Automatically Detect Settings" option in Microsoft Internet Explorer

    1. Start Internet Explorer.
    2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    3. Click the Connections tab, and then click LAN Settings.
    4. Clear the Automatically detect settings check box, and then click OK.      <-- In my case, I put check in the box
    5. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
    6. Reinstall Windows Live OneCare.

    This is all due to a trojan downloader that broke ONECARE a couple days ago and I used Trend Micro Housecall free scanning service and Uniblue registry cleaner to get rid of it.  This is my third major infestation this year with IE. 

    I would say ONECARE is marginally effective. Doesn't even protect itself or IE.  D-

    Definitely not work the high price of the renewal and clearly not recommended for new users.  Go with Trend Micro.
