I continually get this message box that reads “connecting to proxy server ” when I open up a Word doc. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.
Are you using a proxy? If yes, please try to add exclusions to the proxy for following addresses:
Or you can actually disable the option of “Allow Office to connect to the Internet” in FILE>Options>Trust Centre>Trust Center Settings… >Privacy Options.
Please note this will stop Office from connecting to the Internet.

How to get rid of prompts for credentials connecting to proxy …
As jehon already answered, you can disable the Internet connection for all MS-Office 2013 products (Word, Excel etc… ) by using the following Regedit file:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5. 00
But for me it was not enough and as some other commented, there was still some more popup appearing when starting e. g. Excel.
This is probably due by the proxy I have to use at work which needs authentication.
The other answer to put that Microsoft URL in the no-proxy setting is not working if you really need the proxy to browse Internet.
This solution, additionally to the Registry modification (c. f. Regedit script above), is to totally disable the connection by adding the following line in the file C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts like this:
127. 0. 1
I suggest to enter similar entries for all the popup you receive (as long there is a destination address like in the OP.
For me it look quiet now and no more authentication popups appears.
Another way to bypass these popups is to create a shortcut with:
`C:\Windows\System32\ /netonly /\myusername “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\”`
