I have discovered that in my Internet Settings, the "Use Automatic Configuration Script" box is automatically being checked and the field populated, no matter if I uncheck it and delete the field.
This is affecting my Google Search results.
The text in the field is
I've also search for the field value in my reg editor and even if I delete the text from all the entries in there, it still comes back, even after a restart.
Is this Malware, possibly?  FRST.txt and Addition.txt attached. (Had to zip the FRST file as it said it was too big)
Thanks in advance.

I've been having a ton of problems since my boyfriend clicked on an email he thought was authentic from an ebay fraud. Web pages have been slow to not responsive, I kept getting errors about remote server refusing connections, the lan service kept showing proxy server settings and when I would uncheck the box, it just went back again and the check reappears. I tried a system restore and when it came back on it was doing something with new settings and there was never a box or anything with an option to make new settings from the restore. I've done this a few times before and never had settings load like this did. Since then everything seems to have problems. Also, I cannot view the wireless adapter properties because it says I don't have administrative privileges which is what I sign in under I think and also when I click on the show characters under the password it never shows it now just makes the check disappear. I ran hijack and this is what I got:

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 ..........

For Win XP, IE 6, is there a way to start IE and specify the proxy settings it should use? I'm doing some testing with an automated framework (Selenium) and I don't want to set the proxy settings permanently. Also, it is nice to have a programmatic way to do it.

Thanks, - Dave

I've been following a few recent threads of people in a similar position. I repeatedly manually disable a proxy server only to find it keeps returning.
Please see the attached FRST.txt and addition.txt from FRST. Might someone recommend what text I should include in my fixlist.txt to remove the problems?

A:Automatic detect settings for proxy setting wont stay clicked?

I'm working on such a problem now. A serious infection can take over the proxy settings, run a full/deep scan with your antivirus. Hopefully you can get it updated first. Then use something like Malwarebytes to ferret out malware.

A friend of mine brought a laptop for me to fix...I just cannot seem to correct this problem. Apparently one of his children tried to download a game but it messed up his internet connection and cannot connect to the internet using iexplorer or google chrome.
I ran malwarebytes and it threw up a bunch of stuff which I removed, the malwarebytes scan now shows no issues but a problem is still there.
It seems that something has changed his LAN settings on his computer. When I try to alter them and check OK they just revert back to using a proxy with no internet connection available.
I have since downloaded firefox from another computer, installed it on the infected one but that did not work also, I then went into the settings in firefox, changed the proxy setting and all is OK with this browser but every time I try to change the proxy settings in iexplorer it just re checks itself after I click OK. Something is changing this computer settings.

Install different browser than IE. If the connection works there, try reinstalling Internet Explorer

Hi, and thanks for you time and help in advance
I have a Windows 8.1 laptop whose proxy settings keep reverting back to no matter how many times i changed it. I'm not even sure what triggers it, I turn the proxy off, browse a few minutes and suddenly the proxy's changed again.

There is a software which often changes the proxy settings so I decided to config the internet settings registry right to reject the proxy settings. But When I decided to delete this software and return the rights back, I suddenly found that I can not change
the proxy settings manually!
The detail is that I change the auto proxy url, to let my pc use a pac file and I don't want any softwares to change. However, when I decided to give the rights back and try to change the url back, it never success, and even the same when i'm sure I have
cleared this url in the whole registry, but it back, as it never changes!
I check the registry rights twice or more to make sure that the rights has given back, just like it originally should be. But it never works.
So the result is I have to clear and reinstall the WINDOWS 10 AGAIN!
Never should you save such information both in registry and somewhere I don't know! Or you should let these stuffs out of the ** registry!

Hi and thanks for your help/time in advance.
I have a Win7 SP1 64bitOS laptop that I cannot seem to clean. I have thrown everything at it (see below) and it continues to revert back to a proxy setting Just logging off and back triggers it, not necessary to restart. Unchecking the "Use a Proxy server..." grays the address and port box out but the apply button below the "Lan settings" button on the main page is not available.
in searching these forums, I found a few instances of this but I have not had any luck 
Some of the things I've already tried and have logs for most

Hitman Pro (which found 5 instances of the proxy but failed to repair it)
also FRST64 but I am unsure how to do anything but look at the log.

Hi all,
I'm having trouble removing a proxy setting of 127.0.0:8800.  I'm running Win 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1.  I have tried several of the items mentioned in the following thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/548709/cannot-remove-proxy-settings-1270015050/, but all have been unsucessfull.  I have run Malwarebytes, hijackthis, spybit, TDSSKiller to no effect.  I have attached the FRST text file in the hopes that someone can assist.  I also have ESET Online scanner ready to go.
I am currently using Firefox 33.0.2 as it does not use the Windows Proxy settings.  I have tried uninstalling Chrome thinking that it may have been resetting the settings, also to no effect.  I have Safari 5.1 and IE 11 still installed.

A:Can't remove proxy port in settings

Hi,this is normal behaviour and absolutely nothing to worry about. There is no open connection to a proxy server and for some reason IE just displays "80" there instead of leaving it blank. And it gets indeed reset after deletion. I've just checked and confirmed it on my own computer.Is this your only concern or are there other problems?

Dell Dimension 4600 / XP home.

I have an old Dell at home that I use solely for accessing my point of sale system at work using PC Anywhere, and web browsing using Firefox. No mail, office, music, photos, or anything else, and other than downloading one of my own PDFs from my server from time to time, I don't download ANYTHING.

I run Spybot daily and from time to time, it picks up a trojan or a piece of malware / clickware / adware. I fix the problems and I am good to go. I have AVG running at all times and I run MBAM every couple of weeks.

About a month ago, when I opened Firefox (which is up to date), it said my proxy server was refusing connections. Having not changed my settings, I was surprised to find that my proxy settings had somehow switched to proxy with a IP address. I changed the settings to No Proxy and was able to surf normally.

Now, whenever I restart Firefox, the settings are changed back to that same proxy setting. I have searched high and low, and it looks like a lot of people have had this problem, but none of the various fixes seem to apply to my situation.

My PC is also making that little bubble popping noise from time to time for no apparent reason. Coincidentally, every day now Spybot is finding Fraud.AVSecuritySuite, which I fix daily, and then it is found again the next day.

So this isn't a total takeover of my computer, but it is concerning that I am getting the same infection every day, and that my Firefox keeps changing its... Read more

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.

After some work I was able to remove them, but now have encountered a new problem which I expect is also malware related. ProblemWhen I direct my browsers to any website I get a message saying that there is no response from the proxy server. I have never used a proxy server for internet access and when I go into my Internet Properties>LAN Settings and un-check "Use a proxy Server for your LAN" and check "Automatically detect settings" the settings are not remembered and revert as soon as I close and re-open "LAN Settings" rendering my browsers useless. Things I've TriedScans with

I want traffic to a specific secure website(*.paypal.com) to go through a Proxy server and port - on port 1818

Now, I know under Internet Options, you can specify a proxy address, but then all traffic will go through that Proxy. I want to direct traffic ONLY to *.paypal.com to go through the proxy.

Do you perhaps set this in the hosts file like this: 1818 *paypal.com
But I don't think this will work Any idea how to do this? certainly it must be possible?

I have strange issue with Windows 8.1 x64 Pro with Media Center. Since it was upgraded from 8, there have been issues with Software Store. Despite internet connection working fine with Firefox and other applications, Store would not connect to the internet. After long investigation I found out that Proxy server setting in Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings must be disabled in order to get Store working again. For some reason proxy server only stays disabled for the current session, which means when the windows is rebooted it comes back enabled again. My question is how to make it stay permanently disabled, as I don't use any proxy. Thanks.

Our current Windows 8/IE10 tablets apply a group policy which sets up the IE proxy configuration and prevents users from changing that configuration.
This is done using the settings "Prevent changing proxy settings" and "Disable changing automatic configuration settings" (located at computer configuration\administrative templates\windows components\internet explorer).
With Windows 8.1/IE11, the proxy server settings are still greyed out in the LAN settings dialog box under Internet Options\Connections in the desktop IE environment.
However in 8.1 the proxy settings can also be accessed from the Settings charm: Settings - Change PC Settings - Network - Proxy.  From this location, ordinary users can modify and save changes to the proxy configuration.
Is there any way to lock this down?

A:Locking down IE proxy settings under PC Settings\Network\Proxy on Windows 8.1

Update on this - a very helpful Microsoft engineer came back with a workaround which, while not ideal, is a lot better than letting users change their proxy settings.
When I said I was going to post it here, the engineer said to make sure I started with the statement that Binary registry keys as used in this solution shouldn't generally be messed about with, and that editing the registry without first backing it up may
also lead to plagues of locusts, etc.  All the usual disclaimers, so use this at your own risk.
His solution, which we've tested, involves switching from per-user proxy settings to per-machine proxy settings. 
The Microsoft workaround word for word is:
The first thing we need to do is to export the following registry key from a machine that has the correct proxy settings set.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections
This contains the following 2 binary registry keys which have the connections settings: ?DefaultConnectionSettings? and ?SavedLegacySettings?
The next step is to open the newly exported .reg file and to change the path:
From: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections
To: HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections
For a test on a single machine you can manually change this, from elevated cmd: regedit <file>.reg
For a bigger scale you can create a script to deploy the... Read more

What we are seeing though is if the servername has a hyphen in it's name it seems to split it over two lines., for example if the address web-mail.domainname.com is not the first in the line it gets split at the hyphen for example:
Is this just a display issue? Or is there a problem with using hyphens in the servername?

I went on a vacation recently and came back to discover that my housesitter messed my computer up. I kept getting the warnings about my computer being infected with several viruses (malicious adware software), I can't remember exactly which one it was. I got rid of it, but then I could not get on the internet. I finally discovered a post about unchecking "Use a proxy server for your LAN", so I unchecked it and was able to access the internet. 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. If I recheck the proxy server box, I cannot get on the internet again. If anyone knows how to fix this, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

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'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.

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 have windows 7 enterprise latest updated and internet explorer 10 (cant move to 11 due to compatagbility issues) .

internet explorer doesn't refinements the proxy settings.

we have set it to auto detect and it automatically gets unticked.

it is a domain environment and we are only having issues on few computers (2-3 out of 300 computers)..

on one computer even if proxy is unchecked we are still behind proxy and can browse internet while on another we cannot browse internet.
