I keep on receiving a popup box saying:

Proxy Authentication
Your proxy server requires a username and password. Contact your network administrator for the correct settings and supply your proxy username and password in the "Connection section of Settings.
Proxy server: 0.0.0.0:0
Username:
Password:

The internet is not working, and I'm not using a proxy, so I don't know why this message keeps on showing up even after reboots and making new users.

Hi

Is your PC on a network ?
Was it working until recently ?

at the command prompt type ipconfig /all > ip.txt

and post the file ip.txt which may give some one a clue what is going on

It could be you internet router/switch/modem or malware
