if you dont know what a proxy server is then chances are you need to uncheck it ;)

What program are you trying to install? Do you have any programs already on your computer that act as a proxy server, AdSubtract for instance?
From the information you gave I would say install with no proxy. You should always be able to change it after if it doesn?t work.
