Default Why proxy server set to

You have installed something that is routing you through your local IP.

What have you installed recently?

I use XP+SP1. I am in the UK and I am connected to NTL broadband.

I am almost certain that I used to have no proxy sevrer set in IE6
Tools Internet Options Connections Lan Settings.

However I now see that the Use Proxy Server box is ticked and the IP
address entered is the loopback address on port 81.

Some web sites do not like this and they have problems.

I also have Zome Alarm 4.5 and also the antivirus Avast (version 4.5
home edition). Perhaps one of these two applications change the LAN

I also use Firefox and Opera as browsers. Their own settings seem
unchanged and do not refer to a proxy server but when I try to go to
the problem web pages (eg http://www.firstdirect.com/) then they
return a message protesting about proxy servers.

How can I get around this?
