Update manager problem please help !

Hi there

I have ubuntu 8.04 and everything was OK until I have took my laptop to college and set up a proxy for package manager and firefox. Now update manager can't connect internet at home. Problem is that update-manager insists on using the proxy, I have configured before. I have change everything back (Firefox & package manger), but update manager remembers the proxy setting (trying connect through proxy) The sudo apt-get update is the same, it is trying connect through proxy. HOW TO FIX IT??? HOW TO GET RID OF THE PROXY SETTINGS, SO DOWNLOAD MANAGER CAN CONNECT INTERNET ???

Please help

This is a double post of Please go there, I've already started replying there.

P@trick: please don't double post. It gives you more visibility, but at the cost of respect from those who would otherwise help you, and it makes you look like you think you deserve attention more than others. Also please don't you ALL CAPS, IT'S ANNOYING TO READ. There's something from I'm forcing myself not to quote
