Failed to change internet proxy settings. These settings should never in registry!

Q: Failed to change internet proxy settings. These settings should never in registry!

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!

I have Windows 7, search the internet with Chrome, seems my computer may be infected.  When I click chrome, sometimes it gives me my home page, sometimes it goes straight to the message "unable to connect to the proxy server", when it doesn't go directly to my home page correctly, it also states this exact message with an upside down face.  I did some research online and the Chrome message that people were posting up were a bit different from the one I am seeing. 
 
When I attempt to troubleshoot by going to the Chrome settings and going down to "Change Proxy settings" it prompts "access to this feature has been disabled by a restriction set by your system administrator", even though I am using the system administrator user, which is the only user on the system.  I've tried going in through the cmd line as well, pinged, netstat, tracert would give me results but weren't consistent.  I did a system restore as well, I had Sopho's anti-virus but it was out-of-date, for this was my work computer back in September but think the lease for it ended, so I installed AVG for now just today, most likely the reasoning for the computer being infected and causing this problem.  I have also started the pc in safe-mode, same results, is this a group policy issue?  I am unfamiliar with group policy and couldn't find it within my computer.  I do have the home premium version of 7 for what it's worth.

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

We're using GPP to set Proxy settings on a handful of devices.  Specifically, we want the devices to only be able to reach one specific site.  We are accomplishing this by setting a proxy of 127.0.0.1 that is only bypassed with that specific site.

Hi,
I'm looking for a way to change proxy settings depending on what network a client is on.. While it seems pretty simple, I'm unable to use a pac file with IP detection in it.. The proxy settings need to be specified directly.

I need to be able to change the proxy settings to different servers for different offices, then have them disabled if not on one of the corporate networks..

As I said, I cannot use a pac (or any other proxy configuration script), Can be done via group policy - I had a look, but as our servers are only running 2008 (not 2008 R2), I'm unable to do item level targeted proxy settings for anything older than IE7 - That I've been able to see anyway.

Hi all,

I'm in need of an example script that i can change accordingly to my working environment.

I'm currently working at four different locations and move my laptop around with me all of the time. The problem is that in each of my locations i require a different proxy address and port or when at home, none. I'm now fed up with opening up internet explorer and changing the settings manually each time i move location.

Whether this is possible or not i am unsure but what i would like to achieve is four icons on my desktop each called the working location ie home.vbs workplaceone.vbs and so on. I would then be able to double click on these and that would invoke a change to my proxy settings inside IE.

So for each of my work places i would need the following two boxes checked,

'Use a proxy server for your LAN (these settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN Connections)'
'Bypass proxy server for local addresses'
I Would then need to enter my proxy address and port number.

The home settings would need to remove both of the above boxes.

Does anyone have any example scripts i could manipulate accordingly?

Thanking in advanced,

Regards,

Sprite

I think I am having a problem with a trojan, "Backdoor:Win32/Cycbot.B". MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) has removed this trojan twice in the past 2 days. It says it's deleted successfully, but I'm having symptoms that say otherwise. What's been happening that tells me something is not right is that since yesterday, when I open a browser (any browser), I get a message that the proxy is refusing the connection, and when I check the settings, it shows the connection settings have been changed to "Manual Proxy Settings" with my computer's local host IP used as the proxy IP.

I have searched for removal tools, but Firefox's Web of Trust tells me all the search results are rated "bad/" and the Microsoft Malware Encyclopedia doesn't offer a link for one. So I'm hoping someone has some information about this trojan, it's removal in case MSE is getting fooled into thinking it's removed, and anything pertinent to what/who is resetting my connections.

Thanks in advance for your help!

A:Poss. Trojan Adds Proxy Settings To Registry

Hello AlexHarvey and welcome to the BC HiajckThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.Proxy information can come from many sources. If the computer is on a network then the network could be supplying it (or if it was once on a network then it could be left-over from those settings). The 192.168 settings would point to a local network such as a home or small business network. Since the settings only appear when a browser is open then that would be the place to start. I would check the Netscape browser since it stores it's information in a file and not the registry.For help with checking the various settings I would suggest the Web Browsing forum here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/14/web-browsingemail-and-other-internet-applications/ . The settings are stored in different locations for different versions of the browser and someone there should be able to pinpoint the location for whatever browser version you have.Cheers.OT

Some viruses set the internet to use a proxy that doesn't exist. To fix this in Firefox is simple: Options > Advanced > Settings > Check "No Proxy" box

However, this does not allow Windows Update to connect properly, and it also seems to prevent Avira AV from updating properly.

I know there is a system-wide registry setting that can be edited to fix this, but not sure exactly where it is. I found something with google pointing to a per-user fix, but I want the global proxy to be off completely.

Thanks!

A:How Do I change the System-wide Proxy Settings?

The "fix" is to reset the proxy in IE (Windows Update appears to use IE settings in order to connect).

Go to Tools...Internet Options...Connections tab...LAN Settings button...and remove the check marks from the proxy settings area.

These settings are held in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

I suppose you could do the same thing with HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, but haven't had the opportunity to experiment with it.

I recently had to battle the W32Blasterworm virus I believe its called.

After going through my computer and deleting the infected files, and running my virus scanner everything seemed great. However, I noticed that the proxy settings would change. I have had this computer a long time now, and never changed them. It was always on "off" for Internet explorer and "auto" for Firefox. I don't know how I got the virus/worm.

I'm getting numerous Google redirects that seem various, random, and frequent.  Browser searches and window responses quite slow--long pauses when I press Enter untill a page shows, often the wrong page.  Multiple times "Use a proxy server..." in Google's LAN settings gets selected rendering internet access impossible.  I stumbled across this setting change from a Google error message when interentet access could not be had--it directed me to Settings > Advanced Settings > Network > Change Proxy Settings > LAN Setting > Use a proxy server for you LAN.  I don't use a proxy and I've never selected this choice.
 
I'd appreciate is you'd help find the cause of these problems.  This is my first Bleeping Computer post, so please tell me if I did something wrong.  Below is pasted the FRST.txt log and attached is Addition.txt.  (I'm unsure if the Addition.txt got attatched correctly, so let me know if I must try it again.)

Hello everyone;
I removed a virus (SearchProtect) from my niece's computer and everything seems okay now except that the computer cannot connect to the internet. It says "Cannot Connect to the proxy server". She does not use a proxy server, and when I go into Internet Tools, Connections, Lan Settings, etc. and have it detect the setting automatically it immediately reverts back to "Use a proxy server".
 
I also removed a trial version of McAfee that had expired on her computer. Either the virus or McAfee wont allow me to change the proxy server settings in internet explorer to "Automatically Detect".
 
I am assuming this is a registry setting that needs changed or perhaps something in the Group Policy but I do not know where to look or what to do.
 
The PC is running Windows 8.1 and IE10. IE10 is the only browser on the PC.
 
Can someone please help.

Hi, recently my computer just stop connecting to the internet, during investigating I found that all my web browsers said something about the proxy server. I was able to change the setting whithin Firefox and got it to connect but have been unable to do the same for the other browsers. Also other programs that I have won't connect either (adobe creative cloud). I found a post on this website and followed some of the instructions but wanted to be sure I was doing what my computer needed specificaly. I have downloaded and ran serveral virus protections softwares as well as malware apps (AVG, MalwareBytes, CCleaner). I did have tons of things that these programs removed each. Everytime I go into the internet connections settings and uncheck the proxy setting and check the auto detect setting it just reverts back. Below is one of the reports from Farbar Service Scanner.

At first I thought it was a sort of method that Google use to avoid that people use another browsers (yeah... too conspiratorial) so I let it go... but then I realized that this could be a virus or spyware or malware, so I checked what could be the reasons for such error.

Hello everyone, I am running Windows 8.1 and have run into a problem. I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 after having had Windows 7 for quite a few years (about 2-3). Once I did, I made sure Avast would be the first thing I'd install.
For whatever reason after a while I'd get a lot of ads and random objects, and it turned out to be adware. I removed pretty much all of it through the Add/Remove Programs window, the adware items being Pastaleads, Snap.do, KNCTR, Stormwatch, and Idle Crawler, along with something involving remote PC control. This was odd. After I removed those things, I restarted my computer. When it rebooted something else, an iconless item called "Protector" (don't quote me on this, I legitimately can't remember the name but it's something along the lines of "Protector" I know that) was in the Uninstall Applications list. Attempting to uninstall it gave me an error of some sort, but after scanning my PC with both Avast and Malwarebytes, it went away.
I booted up Firefox, went to a page, and it told me something about my proxy settings being incorrect. I had never set a proxy. I turned the proxy settings off and Firefox functioned like normal. I checked out Internet Explorer and realized it had the same problem, only turning proxy mode off would not work. It'd toggle but when I left the menu it'd revert back to a manual proxy. Turns out this was also the reason I couldn't visit the Microsoft Store from Metro, as there were supposedly remaining viruses on the co... Read more

I appear to be the victim of some piece of malware or virus that has added a proxy server setting that I am unable to get rid of. The main symptoms are that I am unable to change my proxy server settings in Windows 10. It appears to use this setting http=127.0.0.1:8080;. The result of this is that I am unable to do searches in the omnibar of Google Chrome (just takes me to a blank page) and I can't visit certain webpages, also if I am able to do a Google search the "Search Tools" button is missing.
 
I looked around on the internet and have tried a few fixes, I've deleted or changed the registry entries mentioned in Philip Turner's reply here: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/446898-can-t-disable-proxy-in-ie10?page=1
 
I also changed the entry mentioned here: https://fixedit.itxpress.biz/2014/10/08/unable-to-disable-windows-proxy-setting/
 
Making these changes allowed me to change the proxy server settings and once I change "Automatically detect settings" to on and "Use a a proxy server" to off then the issue is fixed and everything behaves normally. 
 
The problem is, once I restart my computer the settings revert back and are again unable to be changed unless I delete/change all the above registry entries again. I'm pretty sure that whatever did this is still on my computer somewhere and I need some help finding and eliminating it. Either that, or there is still some hidden registry entry that I am unable to find.

I am running windows xp home edition.
last week I recieved the following massage after restarting my system:

"Windows - Registry Recovery
One of the files containing the system's Registry data had to be recovered by the use of a log or alternate copy. the recovery was successful."

However, this massage kept coming back after every restart.
then, I began experiencing display problems: the task bar color would change to old style windows look and I had to change the settings manually through "properties/display/appearance". But, the next time it happened I completely lost the option of changing back to xp style appearance! the only display option was windows classic style.

I then refered to system restore, and it was solved for a few days. Yet, this problem keeps coming back. Just now I tried another restore point. I got a massage that the restore was not complete but my settings are back - for now.

What should I do? anyone is familiar with this problem?

Help!! - I just updated my Norton anti-virus, was prompted to restart - and the problem is back again: I do not have the xp style appearance option anymore (only classic windows)!!!!

Hi,

I was wondering if it would be possible to either change the speaker settings (switch between stereo, 5.1 etc.) or, preferably, sound balance directly in the registry. Until now, I've only been able to find the key for the speaker settings:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MMDevices\Audio\Render\{...}\Properties]

However, the changes only go into effect for a particular application when the application is restarted. When I do it 'the normal way', the changes go into effect immediately.

I haven't been able to find any key for the sound balance settings.

Hoping for some suggestions... Thanks in advance!

Was wondering if anyone can help us solve a logon issue?

Our corporate logon script written in VBScript is designed to write Internet Proxy values to the users HKCU registry hive depending on the physical location of the PC being logged into. We have a number of users that travel between offices and the logon script is not able to write these registry key values to the registry like it does on everyone else in the company.

Today while one of these users was in we replaced his NTUSER.DAT file to rule out the profile but this solved nothing. We then cloned a new account from his existing account. Dispite the fact that the old account always fails, the new account worked flawlessly. Same groups same access, etc. The only differences that we can come up with is the fact that the old logonid has SID history carried over from when his account was migrated from their legacy NT domain to our new Active Directory domain. If I'm not mistaken the SID history would not carry over to the clone even though the permissions did.

So, what I would like to understand is why the new account works great and the old one fails? If it does happen to have something to do with SID history what is it that is causing the regwrites to fail and how would one fix this problem?

Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Logon script cannot change HKCU settings in registry

Hi wchull, my bet is that you have enabled FolderRedirection for the first account - probably with a GPO. This is a known problem when applying IE proxy settings. First get your user to LOGOFF then LOGON (NOT ShutDown>Restart) do the new settings then appear? GPOs applied to the user won't make it to the Registry hive unless you give the User time to instantiate and later save the results, so when they do appear a second LOGOFF will save them to the profile.

Are you using roaming profiles?

No.

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.

Please check the Installation Notes for more information." I have no idea what proxy settings they mean, or what "Installation Notes" they might be referring to. Can anyone here shed light on the matter?

Thanks!

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!

Hi,
We are setting up our Windows 7 PC's to use a proxy server for Internet access, as part of this we are ticking the bypass proxy for local addresses check box and entering the required server names.
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:
mailserver.domain.com;web-
mail.domain.com
Is this just a display issue? Or is there a problem with using hyphens in the servername?
Thanks,

Hi,
Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.
 

A:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.
