Proxy Server Not Responding

First of all, please note I am not the best at finding answers to my issues.  I've read some things regarding the message in Internet Explorer while on the internet about Proxy Server not responding, but I'm a little leary about doing what it says.  There are two users on our computer.  My connection is fine.  I can access anything on line.  When my husband attempts to access websites except his e-mail, he gets the error message.  I've also run a diagnostic program that tells me "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection."  I have no idea what to do with that.  Can anybody help me in layman's terms how to fix the problem so that he can access the internet as he did before?  Many thanks for a solution.

Re: Proxy Server Not Responding

Thank you for your response, but believe it or not, I actually fixed the problem.  I started comparing settings between his access and mine.  I found when signed into his access and reviewing the Internet Options there was a box checked for a LAN.  On mine, of course, there wasn't. I unchecked the box and all was good again.
