Open your registry and find the key below.

The values that configure the Internet proxy setup are located in this key. To change which proxy server is used, modify the value of 'ProxyServer' to equal the server and port combination. For example if your proxy server was called \PROXY and it was running on port 80 then the setting would equal 'PROXY:80'.

You may also need to set the value of 'ProxyEnable' to equal '1' for proxy enabled or '0' for disabled. Setting the value of 'ProxyOverride' to equal '<local>' will stop internal addresses from going through the proxy.

Changes should take effect immediately.
