I don't know who you are or why you're suddenly
blocking my access to web pages. Clicking "disable
privoxy" doesn't do a thing. My ISP doesn't know who
you are. My IT guy doesn't know who you are. What's
going on?

    http://privoxy.org. Somebody has installed us on your system
    somewhere, I would guess. Does anyone else use your machine?

    There is no program called "Privoxy" installed on my computer.
    A search for the word "Privoxy" in all files and folders returns
    no finds. So how has someone "installed" Privoxy and how can
    I uninstall it?

    If you go to http://p.p/ then the page you see
    will start with "This is Priovoxy <version> on <host>".

    You should contact the person responsible for
    <host> in order to find out how and why they
    are using Privoxy, and/or find out how and why
    your computer uses <host> as a proxy
    for web access. Talking to your IT guy again based
    on that information should fix you.
