Proxy server in IE 11 problem

Hi I have a slight annoyance whereby when I boot my machine up and start IE I invariably get 'proxy server not responding' or something similar. Than I have to go to: tools > internet options > connections > lan settings and untick the box that says 'Use a proxy server for your LAN. Then all's well till I reboot from cold. Don't know about restart. I'm running Windows 8.1 and I don't think I had the problem in windows 8. Anybody out there got any ideas please.. Regards Allan

Hi Jock1e there is nothing in the box and automatically connect is not ticked. Should it be? Regards.
