    I think you're having other issues, things not related to Opera. Opera can use a proxy by default, but only the one already set up on your system. So it won't act like a proxy of its own.

    So if there are websites complaining about this then you might want to check the health of your system. Is it possible you caught a virus or some malware?

  • could using turbo make any difference

    i am using it right now

  • @helpmee

    this prolly won't help, but check Internet Options Go to the tab called connections look for lan settng click it and then make sure no one has checked that box recently to use a proxy.. if the box is checked then uncheck..

    Turbo is a proxy. Traffic using Turbo gets specially routed through Opera's servers for data compression in order to speed it up (hence "turbo").

  • @blackbird71 is right !..

    How does Opera Turbo work?
    The technology behind Opera Turbo is a proxy server with server-side compression of webpages. A compression rate of up to 80% can be achieved, in part by reducing the quality of images. If you want to view an image uncompressed, right-click on the image, and select "Reload Image in Full Quality".
