Checking / Enabling / Disabling Quick Web Proxy

Teramind Agent, when installed, injects a customized HTTPS certificate called Quick Web Proxy that allows it to recode encrypted data so that it can monitor HTTPS sessions and other secure web activities such as webmail, IM chats etc. If this certificate isn't installed correctly, then monitoring for those items may not work properly.
