    Hello. I bought a set of proxies from a proxy selling website. I find that some proxies are not working. When I am pining them...ping reply is coming from 127.0.0.1 IP instead of proxy IP. Its very strange. I have never seen it. Can you please tell me what is wrong with my computer?

    Check your "HOSTS" file. On Windows 7, it's located in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    That particular domain may be pointing to 127.0.0.1

    Programs like Spybot S&D do this with domains that have been reported to be spyware.

    Hope this helps
