Proxy server connection failed

I got a mysterious "Unable to connect to the proxy server" when trying to connect to any website. The other useless message was "Error 130 (net::ERR_PROXY_CONNECTION_FAILED): Proxy server connection failed."

It turns out I was using a proxy. I did have fiddler running earlier and I shut it down by ending its process via Task Manager.

Looks like Fiddler needs you to shut it down properly when you are done with it because it obviously needs to stop being a proxy to your internet connection.


Simply open Fiddler up again and then close it properly and it should close it's current proxy service and you should be fine.
