I will start with a short aside. I recently purchased the online membership to MLBtv.com and due to blackout restrictions I was working to find a proxy which would allow me to watch my local games. I downloaded something called "Quick Hide IP" and connected to one of their proxies briefly before deciding it was not for me and promptly uninstalled the program. Upon uninstalling the program, I was unable to access the internet whatsoever. My computer shows full connectivity to my network, yet it will not load pages in any browser nor on bittorrent, and my assumption is it has something to do with the proxy cutting out. Even after plugging the Ethernet cable directly into my computer, I get full connectivity yet cannot access the internet.

Upon going to the "Quick Hide IP" website, their FAQ gave the following information:

Q: Why couldn't I access internet, even when I am not running Quick Hide IP?
A: If Quick Hide IP closes when shutting down computer, it will have no chance to restore your real IP. So proxy setting is still enabled after restarting computer. You could either restore your IP by Quick Hide IP("Hide IP" and then "Restore IP"), or retore manually(In Internet Explorer browser's menu bar,Tools->Internet Options->Connections).

The problem is, after re-installing the software, the problem cannot open because it cannot connect. Manual restoration in Firefox and Google Chrome has not worked, and so I was looking for other ideas. Any thoughts would be appreciated, as I have tried some things I read online to restore my connection and none have worked. I'm almost at the point of contacting my ISP provider to see if they may have shut it off for some reason but wanted to hear any ideas before I did that.
