There was a flaw in a recent Windows Update that effects, primarily, VPN and/or proxy connections. The symptoms are broken, slow and/or intermittent connections. The fix for this is not a normal Windows Update and needs to be downloaded and installed manually.

Here is a link to a ZDNet article on the subject:
https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-10-remote-work-bug-microsoft-races-out-this-emergency-fix/?ftag=TRE5575fdc&bhid=23543436395449633080872179861831&mid=12774393

Here is a Windows message center page on it:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/windows-message-center

Here is the download page for the update. You will need to decide which applies to your system:
https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4554364

It is recommended that you only apply this update if you are seeing issues.

I decided to install the thing to see if I saw any issues with this patch. Here is what I did:

1) Did a clone of my system drive in case the patch caused issues. I do both system images and clones to backup my system. In this case I chose clone as it is quicker.

2) Of course I applied the patch and re-started.

I saw no difference but then I use neither a VPN nor proxy so I didn't really expect a difference. I only applied the update to see if it caused my system any issues; it did not. If you are seeing any oddities with your Internet this update is something that you MAY want to check out.
