Windows 7: Tools/settings

Tools/settings

I recently upgraded my laptop to 7. I am running IE8. Everytime that I log onto the net I have to go through Tools/Internet Options/Connections/Settings and choose Automatically Detect Settings and uncheck Use a Proxy Setting to open websites. The computer will not open ANY site with the Use a Proxy Setting checked and 7 resets it to that each time I disconnect from dialup. The option to save the Automatically Detect is grayed out so that's not an option... Any ideas, anyone? It certainly is aggravating.

No. I'm at home on dialup. DSL is not available in my area yet. No network of any kind here..
