Check the conditions pivx lists here:
http://www.pivx.com/workaround_fail.html to make sure its being executed 
as we did.

This has been reported by over 100 users, and duplicated by PivX lab 
monekys on Window2k 95 and 98.


Might I suggest that this is a misconfiguration by the folks at PivX?  IE 
6, and WMP 7.1, on a WinMe box has no problem with it.  There is an option 
to set a DEFAULT proxy.  This would cause the behavior you described, as 
would simply enabling the proxies, and setting a Gopher proxy (the 
HTTP/FTP fields are automatically filled in with bogus addresses when 
proxies are first enabled).  It appears as though your find is your own 
error, rather than any problem with the workaround.  It is interesting, 
though, MS appears to have simply ripped off the Online Solutions 
workaround that's been floating around for a few weeks.
