    The lovely Mrs VB recently returned from Op Herrick. She used the Paradigm wifi at Bastion and had some problems accessing mail. She took her laptop (running Vista) to Paradigm who 'changed some settings'. Since she returned she's had problems accessing Googlemail. I contacted Paradigm's tech help, and they advised me to uncheck 'use proxy server' in Internet Options/Connections/LAN settings. This did the trick, but every time the computer is restarted the settings have reverted to 'use proxy server' . The 'advanced' tab refers to a file 'web cache Paradigm' on port 8080.

    Paradigm seem unable to offer any meaningful assistance.

    I've cleared the cache, deleted temp files etc., but nothing seems to make a difference. I can''t find any files relating to Paradigm on the HDD.

    Anyone know how to resolve this?

    You may have to use an administrator account to do this.
