FoxyProxy is just a firefox Add-on used to configure multiple proxies. Quite powerfull I must say, with regex supports etc.
SOCKS is a particular type of proxy (not just HTTP/FTP).
The problem (after a little googling), seems to be that IE does not know how to pass DNS request to the SOCKS server, it tries to resolve locally (as it was mandatory in early version of socks, until socks4 I think, old stuff). You need to find a way to tell IE to make the DNS resolution via the proxy, or maybe use an external socks client (see http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOCKS#clients_SOCKS
, sorry it's in french but the client list use english terms, and there is no such info on the english page).
Or maybe there is a socks client service in windows, available somewhere in TCP/IP options (chech your nic options).
Sorry, I can't test or do further research : I don't have windows...
