can someone name some examples of proprietary computer companies?

Your terminology is strange. Companies are not proprietary. The information they hold can be considered proprietary if it's not public knowledge, and that knowledge could cause losses to the company if it became public.
Some companies are proprietorships, which means that the company is really just the owner. There is no public stock ownership because the company is a private individual.
An example would be a little local computer company selling out of a store in your town. Very rarely would a consumer outside of your town know anything about him.
