Proxy Credentials automatically saved in Internet Explorer 11

Q: Proxy Credentials automatically saved in Internet Explorer 11

In our organization we use a Squid proxy server for internet access. We do not have a domain. Our problem is that Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 by default saves proxy credentials when the user types his account at the prompt of the proxy server. The
Remember my credentials box is auto checked. Is it possible to change this behaviour?

Preferred Solution: Proxy Credentials automatically saved in Internet Explorer 11

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Having a lot of issues with the new explorer 11 but the most baffling is this:
Say a user has (against policy) checked the box on the basic auth box allowing IE to remember the password. In previous versions even though this is checked each time the proxy sends the 407 response the box would popup with the information entered. IE 11
is not doing this, it just responds to the 407 with the credentials that were saved and goes on. Now this is a REAL problem if a user with admin access has entered their info for one reason or another and missed the fact that the box was checked. And I can
find no way to clear the cached credentials, deleting everything does not help nor no setting I can find including setting HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings DisablePasswordCaching = 1 (which never worked in Windows 7 but still
popped up the auth box). The ONLY way I have found to clear the credentials is to have the user change their password so the password fails. As we are saddled with several large vendors requiring the use of IE I need to know how to fix this and keep it from
ever happening again. It is the most unacceptable behavior I have ever seen from a company that specializes in unacceptable behavior in their software products

Everytime I change users on Windows XP and connect to the internet, Internet Explorer 7 opens with the Proxy box automatically checked (under Tools>Internet Options>Connections>Settings [for ISP]), causing pages on the internet not to be able to load. Upon unchecking the proxy box, closing IE7 and reopening IE7 (without changing Windows XP user), pages will load fine.

I have a local authenticated proxy server in my environment which is not on the local domain. It is a standalone proxy server and had specific login credentials.
When I try to access internet on internet explorer, I am prompted to enter proxy server login details. Also when i execute "invoke-webrequest" command on powershell, i get the error. Details below:

Invoke-WebRequest -uri
Invoke-WebRequest :
Access Denied (authentication_failed)
Your credentials could not be authenticated: "Credentials are missing.". You will not be permitted access until your

This is typically caused by an incorrect username and/or password, but could also be caused by network problems.

Something nasty is going on in my Vista PC. Everything I download, be it EXE, ZIP, JPG, etc gets deleted as soon as its downloaded. Malwarebytes and AVG didn't find anything, I have uninstalled those programs, and tried Windows Defender and still no luck. I'm running Vista Home, SP 2. I think it was a rogue "Jave is out of date" popup that installed when somebody else using this computer clicked on the link that might have installed something malicious, something with firefox. Seems strange, because I'm running the latest Java, but anyway. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks, BenEdit: Moved topic from Windows Vista to the more appropriate forum, at the suggestion of membership. ~ Animal

A:Everything saved from the internet gets deleted automatically

Java out of date could be as it says or it could be a fake rogue something... Anyway I like to help about the download problem.
1 - Did you always have that problem?
2 - Do you use the browser default downloader or a software to download?
3 - Did you try to test to save to different locations? If not why not test that.
Because it happens that the folder that you want to save to, has a windows protection enabled, for this reason a completed download may be stuck in the download temp folder (of the browser or the download software) and not moved to the saved location that you specify.
4 - if number 3 fails try it again but this time save the download to a USB.

A vulnerability in fully patched versions of Internet Explorer allows attackers to steal login credentials and inject malicious content into users' browsing sessions. Microsoft officials said they're working on a fix for the bug, which works successfully on IE 11 running on both Windows 7 and 8.1.
The vulnerability is known as a universal cross-site scripting (XSS) bug. It allows attackers to bypass the same origin policy, a crucially important principle in Web application models that prevents one site from accessing or modifying browser cookies or other content set by any other site. A proof-of-concept exploit published in the past few days shows how websites can violate this rule when people use supported versions Internet Explorer running the latest patches to visit maliciously crafted pages.
To demonstrate the attack, the demo injects the words "Hacked by Deusen" into the website of the Daily Mail. But it also could have stolen HTML-based data the news site, or any other website, stores on visitors' computers. That means it would be trivial for attackers to use it to steal authentication cookies many websites use to grant access to user accounts once a visitor has entered a user name and password. Once in possession of the cookie, an attacker could access the same restricted areas normally available only to the victim, including those with credit card data, browsing histories, and other confidential data. Phishers could also exploit the bug to trick people into div... Read more

A:Serious bug in fully patched Internet Explorer puts user credentials at risk

The article doesn't make any sense.  It starts of by talking about a vulnerability in Internet Explorer, then talks about websites doing something with cookies, and then the exploit is "proven" by hacking some website.

Just realized the quoted text is not the whole article.  Reading the Ars Technica article from the link now...

I am creating a wireless network profile that needs to be imported during sysprep via unattended.xml using this command
netsh wlan add profile filename="C:\Wirelessprofiles\TECHDATA.xml" user=all

The PC in question will not be joined to our domain however I must use a network login for the profile. e.g. Domain\Username

We have a User name and password specifically for this purpose and I can create the wireless profile, save the credentials and connect to the network successfully.
The profile is configured as follows

Security Type: WPA2-Enterprise
Encryption Type: AES
Microsoft: Protected EAP (PEAP)

NT W/S 4.0 w/sp6a, upgrade install of IE 5.5 over possibly bad install of IE 5.0. We're running IIS 5 on W2K with MS Proxy 2. Services on the IIS server are set to challenge-response security.

Affected IE clients do not appear to be passing NTLM credentials to the IIS server, thus they are unable to access the proxy services. Intranet zone security settings and proxy configuration is set the same as on functional installations. The log files on the IIS server do not even show that the affected clients attempted to connect, much less any authentication failure. The Proxy server is set to fail-over to the internet connection. Users whose clients are not working properly receive an authentication dialog from the Radius server on our firewall.

Does anyone have any idea what is causing these IE clients to either not attempt or fail to authenticate with the IIS server?

Last week my computer had a virus that I successfully removed using Malwarebytes. Since then I have been unable to access the internet using my default browser Google Chrome (instead I receive a 'This Webpage is not available.' message with the error: Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): Unknown error.

Or with internet explorer where the following message is received: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

Yet it works fine with Firefox. I then tried signing in via Windows Live Messenger where it failed and upon doing the connection troubleshooter received an exclamation mark next to the proxy and key ports sections.

Is there any way for me to fix it so that I can have normal internet access? One major problem right now is that I cannot even upload pictures via Photobucket or even e-mail where Google Chrome gives the message: Attachment failed. This may be due to a proxy or firewall.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there:

I often save my favorite sites to a folder so i can get back to them later and for a long time I could just go to my folder (on my disk i save the sites to) and IE would automatically open the website no problem. But recently (couple months now) when I try to open the same sites i know they are good sites an error comes up asking me to make sure the name is spelt right. Yes the url name is correct.

I think I may know what triggered the problem, but I dont know how to fix it. One day while i was surfing the net i acitentally came across one of those pron sites that say you must DL file to access the site. I kept telling it no but somewhere in the perecistance I hit yes. One of those perecistant pop ups that ask you and when you say no another comes up asking to press ok sayinf i undrstand i wont have full access unless i say yes and then the first screen shows again (back and forth several times).

Anyway the thing downloaded, and i guess it associated itself so everytime IE (saved link) opens the program opens. Fortunately, when i actually go to open the actuall internet explorer exectutable file IE opens just fine. UN-fortunately today i can't remember the exact name of the DLed file: ULA something. During the time of DL when i saw the file to be no good I used spybot, adaware, nav and add/remove program to get rid of the thing.

However, whenever I try to google anything, it takes me to different "search" websites instead of linking me directly to the site I want. Or, it will send me to a website that's trying to sell me something and I have to completely close IE down. This is getting really old, and I don't know how to fix it.

I seem to recall that when you change the proxy settings for Internet Explorer, it's not just IE you are changing. IEs proxy settings are somehow the proxy settings for other apps and the OS as well. Can anyone confirm this? What connections are affected if I add a proxy in IE?

A:Internet Explorer Proxy Setting

The proxy settings in Internet Explorer preferences are for IE and any system function that needs Internet access, such as Windows Update. In a large network going through a company proxy server is often the only way to access the Internet. Many applications choose to use these settings while others have their own configuration options. Many will use the system setting by default but provide the means to override this. Applications are free to do whatever they want regarding proxy servers.

Each application will have it's own proxy settings. Some, such as Firefox, will have the option of using system settings but this must be manually selected. Others will require manual proxy settings.

I repaired a laptop for a friend who was missing 1 year of MS updates and had expired virus program. Computer was loaded with viruses. Using ProcessExplorer and a host of the usual virus removal tools it appears that the machine was cleaned when I worked on it and appears to be now. Problem is that a proxy keeps getting added to Internet Explorer. This was the situation before and after he used the computer for about 2 weeks, it reappeared again.

I was wondering, is there a way to apply settings to Internet Explorer to only proxy ip's in a list. So basically if I have 123.456.1.1 and 123.456.1.2. I only want to have 123.456.1.1 and 123.456.1.2 proxied, anything else that is browsed would be unproxied and go directly to the internet. I suppose it does not have to be in Internet Explorer, it just has to be a system wide setting.

A:Internet connection problem: "Windows could not automatically detect proxy settings"

Read other 6 answers

Hi, I have IE version6.0. Running in a dell 1.3 ghz. I use No-Charge free Internet. IE use to open up automatically when my dialer connected to the Internet. I messed with the settings and changed it so I have to double click IE on the desktop when I have connected. How do I change it back so IE automatically opens? Thanks...Dan

A:How to make Internet Explorer open up automatically when dialer connects to Internet?

I'm not sure if this looks the same in IE6, but in Internet Options > Connection > Settings, is the Dialup Networking connection you are using the one selected there? When you launch IE, the dialup adapter should run.

Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with this option. The school computers go through a proxy server which requires a username and password to access. On the pop-up menu that prompts for the username and password, there's an option to remember the login credentials. On some computers, this will be checked by default and on others, it will be unchecked by default.

Does anyone know if it's possible to change whether it is checked or unchecked by default? I haven't been able to find an option to do so, and it's causing some teachers and students to save their credentials on the computers, which can be a security issue.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

A:Internet Explorer - "Remember my Credentials" option

Hi mitchyd1989, welcome to Seven Forums.
Your problem is quite a tricky one.

As far as I know, the "Remember my credentials" check box should always be unchecked by default. Unless it has been checked by someone (in your case a teacher or a student).

Unfortunately there isn't really a way to completely disable this option, without having to go into really deep nitty gritty computer stuff.

But I have found some useful information on the web that you might like to have a look at:

Case Study ? How to Enable or Disable ?Remember my credentials? in IE in credential window. - AsiaTech: Microsoft APGC Internet Developer Support Team - Site Home - MSDN Blogs
Otherwise I would suggest upgrading to Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, as these Internet Browsers don't have the "Remember my credentials" button and are 3x faster than Internet Explorer.

I hope this helps .

Woops! I posted this in tips section. Reposting here. Sorry.

I tried to find info in forum on this but couldn't.
I started out with Internet Explorer (5.) after re-istalling Win98 which worked very well and loaded quickly. Then I downloaded Netscape but did not make it my default(?).
After that, IE became slow to load and now I get the message "detecting proxy settings" and I ususally lose patience and click on home button which works but it's still so slow. I'm on DSL. I use both Netscape and Internet Explorer to view how my html appears when working on my site.
Any suggestions for this problem and what the heck does detecting proxy settings mean.
Thanks, Marianne

A:Internet Explorer: detecting proxy settings

I don't have DSL, just regular DUN. Does DSL create a DSL folder like DUN has? Just curious.

I would check the settings in IE, Tools>Internet Options>Connections>Settings, to see if Use a proxy server is checked. If so, uncheck it, and test IE. If not, do you have a site that you can look at for the DSL FAQ's?

Which browser do you want to be your default?
To make Internet Explorer the default Tools>Internet Options>Programs>Place a checkmark at the bottom of the page for Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser otherwise, uncheck it to make another browser the default.

I'm facing a strange problem on a lot of Windows machines at my company: the Internet Explorer proxy settings keeps changing.
The proxy settings are being set by a Domain GPO, but on several machines the proxy settings revert back do "Automatically detect settings" from time to time. I'm pretty sure that the GPO is rightly configured. I just need to run
gpupdate /force to correct the proxy settings. And all machines have a up-to-dated antivirus software installed.
Now the strange thing: while using Procmon to find out which process changed the AutoConfigURL registry key, I found that
iexplore.exe process executed by itself a RegDeleteKey command to clear this key.

I've tried disabling several add-ons, but the problem is still happening. Does anyone know if there is a way to discover "what" inside IE is removing the proxy configurations? Or if something is invoking IE to do this nasty job? :P

A:Internet Explorer keeps changing proxy settings

Actually I found out what happened.
Here in Brazil almost every bank and financial institution demand us to install a security plugin to help on protecting their internet banking access. These plugins work almost independently, they update by themselves and take any necessary action without
warning the user.
And that's what happended with us: one of the most used internet banking by the employees updated its security plugin automatically, and this new version was checking if the proxy configured in IE was suspicious. Sadly, for some reason it considered
our proxy address as a threat and removed it using the RegDeleteKey command. Just some minutes after we put back the proxy address, the plugin removed it again.
This loop lasted for almost two weeks. After figuring out what was happening, I have contacted the support personel of this bank. They knew that it was a known issue, and executed a remote action to downgrade their little monster, which
solved the problem.

Last week, I downloaded a game but it put several other "programs" on my computer which were a real pain. Using Malwarebytes, I removed the programs and my computer is now pretty much back to normal.
However, something else that found its way onto my computer are proxy settings for each browser, basically preventing me from accessing the Internet. With Firefox, this wasn't too much of a problem because I just un-checked the Proxy settings and I can now use it again (I am using Firefox to type this thread).
However, unchecking the proxy settings makes absolutely no difference with Internet Explorer because it just "checks" iself again straight away. So I go to Internet Options --> Connections --> LAN settings --> uncheck proxy server and then click "OK".
Then as soon as I go back to LAN settings, proxy server is checked again. It is an endless loop that cannot be solved simply by unchecking the proxy server box. There is something more sinister at play here.
Anyone know how I can go about finding out the cause of this problem and rectifying it?

A:Proxy Settings are Preventing me from Using Internet Explorer - How to Remove?

Hello MarcusFenix -

So I go to Internet Options --> Connections --> LAN settings --> uncheck proxy server and then click "OK".

Do you complete this by ticking the Top Left Box (Automatically Detect Settings) then click APPLY and then OK > OK to exit the area ??
If you just untick the Proxy and click OK it will not APPLY or stay unticked.
Just an observation on the way you have written it.
If you think it is Malware related, we can also look at that ..........

I have network resources available over a VPN connection but Windows 7 will not use the credentials I have entered in credential manager nor does it prompt me for user credentials upon opening the resource.  I have tried the following:

-delete entry from credential manager

-net use * /del (result "there are no entries in the list")

-net use \\servername /del (result "the network connection could not be found")

-net use /persistent:no

None of these steps have done anything to resolve this issue. Please advise another solution to clear the mysteriously cached credentials.....

Hi everyone,
Here is my issue, my computer is functioning ok except for internet explorer. I am able to google and search things but when I try to enter a number of different sites (such as the malwarebytes download page) I receive a message that says "the proxy server isn't responding." "Check your proxy settings" When I go into internet options --> Connections----> Lan Settings, the "user proxy server for your lan" is checked and greyed out. I have run malwarebytes which did not fix the issue. Someone mentioned checking a proxy setting in regedit which was set to 1, when I change it to 0 as I was recommended, It did not fix the issue and simply reverted to 1. Im not sure if that is relevant at all but this issue is quite frustrating and any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, running Windows 7 x64 SP1 notebook, noticed Windows Update failed and found Internet Explorer LAN proxy server settings had been modified to: which appears to be some form of malware/trojan/virus.
I was able to add Windows Update exceptions to proxy settings and temporarily remove the changes which allowed Windows Update to function properly but the proxy settings in IE were modified again on reboot.
Avast and Malwarebytes don't pick up anything, rebooted in Safe Mode and removed the proxy settings again which hasn't changed again upon reboot but would like to be sure I am clear of or don't have any other infections.

When attempting to browse with Internet Explorer, any URL I request (www.google.com, www.yahoo.com) gives an error page that says, "The proxy server isn't responding." The given proxy address is pointing at localhost. I am able to browse in Firefox, but I need Internet Explorer to work as well.
I cannot disable the "Use proxy server for your LAN" setting under Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN settings.
