Note: We now have a non-proxy mode that should avoid most issues related to the proxy. For information on setting this up, please see Non-Proxy Mode for Mac and Windows.
Issue: Freedom doesn't seem to work on Windows, and I suspect it has something to do with proxy settings. How can I check?
Freedom depends on using the Windows HTTP proxy to enforce its blocking. In rare cases, the Windows proxy configuration will become broken. This can be a result of other software installed on the system which is "fighting" with Freedom for control of the proxy.
Using the below steps, you can check the status of the Windows proxy. If Freedom isn't working and the proxy is off, you may want to investigate if other software on the system is interfering.
