proxy server setting is hijacked

Q: proxy server setting is hijacked

Hi, The proxy server setting is hijacked and keeps resetting to port 8000. I do not use proxy to connect to the internet. The reset happens after a reboot. I am running windows 8.1 on a dell inspiron 17r. Can anyone help with this please?

Preferred Solution: proxy server setting is hijacked

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.)

Hello there,
I'm not sure there's anything malicious about port 8000.. it's the default server.
I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong through.

My Win8 Start Page apps stopped working - could not access internet. Then I noticed Dropbox couldn't get a "secure connection". But Firefox browser and my email client had no problem with the internet. After hunting around a bit, I discovered that Proxy Server was checked in the LAN Settings of Internet Options-Connections tab. I turned it off and all was well, but it came back on the next boot. I can't find anything suspicious in my autostarted programs and the built-in MS security software isn't complaining about anything.

Anybody have any ideas? I'm fresh out of things to try. Meanwhile I keep resetting the Proxy check box whenever I have to re-boot.

A:Something is setting proxy server

If you haven't tried using System Restore yet, it's pretty handy for this sort of trouble.

From the Windows 8 Start Screen, type Recovery, then click Settings, then click Recovery, and then select Open System Restore. Choose a restore point from before your proxy settings started reinventing themselves.

Best of luck

I have Squid installed on a Linux box running OpenSuSE 10.3. Does anyone know of a guide for configuring it for public access. So far it works fine from inside my internal network.

Does anyone know of any other proxy server programs for linux? Thanks.

A:Setting up a public proxy server

Hum.. Why are you doing this? You do realise that you will not be able to keep this proxy "secret" (even if you use non-default ports)? There are literally thousands of machines out there doing port scans and looking for open proxies just like yours. Once found, your machine becomes a conduit for everything that needs to be hidden from law enforcement officials. (And you will be the one questioned about all that child porn, hacking attempts and spam.) You should be prepared to keep throrough logs of everything and have a fast internet connection.

Anyway, first you should find out whether it is your firewall or Squid itself that is blocking access from the internet.

For all the Squid documentation you would ever want, try the totally unthinkable www.squid.org

Hello, I use a web accelerator called ExpressLink. When I connect to the Internet the proxy server setting is getting turned on automatically even though
it is not necessary when using the accelerator. If I disable the proxy server setting, it usually gets turned on again. I do not have any ISP software
installed. I have tried setting my connection to "Never dial a connection." but as soon as the accelerator starts the proxy server setting turns on. How do I keep this from happening? I am using Windows XP Home.

A:Disabling the Proxy Server Setting

The accelerator IS the proxy. The proxy settings probably look like "localhost:8080" or something like that, right? If that's the case, you would need to disable the accelerator, which is probably not something you want to do anyway, so you will need to leave the proxy settings enabled.

Hi all

We have just installed Websense Software for Internet Filtering. We now want to point all our 250+ PCs to the Proxy Server. Rather than doing this individually on each PC, I understand this can be done via Group Policy (GP). I have identified that in the UserConfig, under Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\connection you can select Proxy Settings. Here I enable Proxy, set the Proxy IP and to use the same proxy for all addresses.
On saving and assigning the GPO to the workstation, it fails to apply the settings. However, if you manually set the options under the Tools\Connections Tab within IE6 it works fine.

We are running Server 2003 with XP Workstaions (Sp2) with IE6. All fully patched.

Anyone got any ideas!!!!!


A:Proxy Server setting via Group Policy

You can make that change in your default domain policy
under the user configuration.
It should work withou applying it to workstations.
Since you are making the change apply to users....no workstations
are needed to be specified.

Hey guys,

I've been digging through forums and sites for the past couple months now trying to find a way to help me turn my home PC into a proxy server so I may use Pandora Radio on my iPhone over public WIFI at work. Recently our corporate offices upgraded their network and in turn added a firewall which blocks many common external sites, one of which included Pandora.

I have found a temporary workaround by way of using Hotspot Shield's free VPN services, but I would like to create my own proxy server at home instead so I can avoid the constant timeouts/disconnects involved with the free service.

So far I've set up my PC to use a static IP on the network, and forwarded port 1723 to that address. I've also enabled incoming connections under adapter settings, but it just seems like I'm missing something big here. I am unable to make a connection to my home PC from my iPhone over WAN, and even if I was able to I'm not sure how to enable internet connection sharing over that connection.

Is what I would like to do at all possible or feasible? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

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.

Hi there-
Yesterday I noticed that the “automatic proxy setup” had been turned on and set to http://ɴ.net/server.pac. And I can not delete or change this setting. Basically I see the same problem as described in this post:

I searched Registry for "http://xn--koa.net/server.pac", and spot it in several places. I deleted all the "http://xn--koa.net/server.pac" that I found. After restarting the OS for several  times, the problems didn't appear. I assumed the problem was fixed.
BUT today, it comes back again. So I know method of simply deleting http://xn--koa.net/server.pac in Registry won't fix this problem permanently. 
I attached FRST reports below.
​Also, just minutes ago, by using FRST, I searched Registry again for "http://xn--koa.net/server.pac", and found 4 items:

I'm having connection problems (e.g., trying to open Windows Update in IE or Firefox always goes to MSN.com). I suspect the problem is that some malware is changing my DNS server addresses to and I can change it in the TCP/IP setup, and it changes right back. I can manually remove the registry entries (like HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: NameServer =;, and they change right back. I can remove those entries from the registry in safe mode but, as soon as I restart in normal mode, something's changing them back again.I've run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Spybot S&D. MBAM catches and fixes the registry entries, but apparently hasn't found the actual culprit. I was hoping Spybot's realtime registry change monitor (TeaTimer) would catch whatever's doing the changing, but it doesn't seem to notice.

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=;. 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 have installed a driver from Wells Fargo for a check scanner. This driver installs a service that connects the scanner to a Wells Fargo's server.  For some reason it bypasses the proxy settings in IE.  Is there a way to either force this
particular service through the proxy or to globally set all network traffic to be sent through the proxy.  Keep in mind that the proxy server is not located on our local network but is remote so I can't set the Default gateway to the proxy. And I
have used netsh.exe to set the WinHTTP proxy settings to match IE to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated.

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

i am just messing about experimenting on a few things at home and wondered if someone could give me some pointers on the folowing:
I have myself a win2k server that is connected to the internet using a cable modem connected using a ethernet net card.
I also have a 98 machine networked to the server using another ethernet net card in a workgroup
I want to use the server as a proxy server so i can access the internet from the 98 machine
i have tried a few diffrent things to get this working but usually end up losing all communication with the 98 pc
from what i can gather it involves setting up tings with DNS, and sharing the connection to the internet, but i am not getting to far at the mo.
can anyone point me in the right direction or better tell me how to do it?

Mod Edit:  Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/414501/how-to-hide-ip-address-for-beginners/ - Hamluis.
 What does it do when you set up your own proxy using google apps and python engine? I did that not long ago just to see if i could but dont know how a circular route would be any better (circular route- a google account traceable to my ip, setting up a proxy that uses said google account.) Whats the deal with this way of doing it?  Its worked to get passed certain blocked sites but then its also barred me from other sites that don't allow proxy logons.

Hey guys, I've been battling this proxy setting that will not go away, instead of staying on automatic, the internet settings is always on proxy, to on port 56507, for both http and secure.
I've run MB and my antivirus, both at full scan, no files left out, both caught a few unrelated pups, I've gone through my program list and got rid of any unwanted/untrusted software, no fix
Really scratching my head, I have 0 access to the internet right now, though any browser, I'm on my phone right now, any help would be appreciated

I hope somebody can help me...I recently switched from a dial-up service to a cable service. When I try to access the internet using @home browser I cannot connect. I have had service calls and spent hours on phone with tech support only to come up empty handed.

It seems that when I go into "tools" and then "connections" and then "lan settings" and I "uncheck" the box for "use automatic configurations script" removing the automatic proxy setting, then I can connect to the internet no problem. As soon as I close out the browser and then try and reconnect...no dice. I have to then go back into tools, connections, lan settings, uncheck the box again and then I'm good to go until I close out the browser again....

How do I stop the pc from defaulting back to that proxy setting?

How do I fix this problem??????? PLEASE HELP!!!

A:Trouble with Proxy setting Help Please!

With all programs closed, try going to Start, Settings, Control Panel. In control panel, double click on internet options. Make your changed on the connection tab and close internet options and control panel. Then try the @home browser.

This should really be the same thing as what you tried since the @home browser is really internet explorer, but maybe the @home browser isn't saving the change correctly.

I have the case:

I'd like to overwrite proxy settings set up via GPO in site policy - 1. User Configuration\Preferences\Control Panel Setting\Internet Settings -> Connections -> LAN settings,


2. User Configuration\Preferences\Windows Settings\Registry -> HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings -> AutoConfigURL = proxy server address.pac

It seems to me, this is the same registry which areapplied in point no.1, but finally it does not working and proxy addresswas not changed.
I have suspection, that the same settings provided by GPO cannot be overwritten by GPP settings?

Why is it that the proxy being set in the web browser at work causes certain web sites to not come up properly? I just started my internship in IT and we have a proxy set up in Internet Explorer in internet options/connections/lan settings. We have allowed for users to go to certain sites but I have noticed that some sites like wikipedia dont come up completely right when the proxy is on in IE. Im just curious if anyone has any knowledge on this? Is there a way I can make the pages come up right without having to unselect the proxy?

Hi, I can't seem to get my windows mediaplayer (7.01) to function with my IExplorer. I set IE for use with my work HTTP proxy settings. Mediaplayer seems to want to use my Netscape browser proxy settings as default when I try to launch the Media guide or anything else while on IE. My Netscape is set for "direct connection" to internet in its proxy settings. I use Netscape when I'm not using my work proxy connection. Mediaplayer works fine with netscape when I'm off my work proxy network. I've tried reinstalling mediaplayer, but it still launches Netscape...even when I'm on IE and click on Mediaplayers icon in the lower left corner, it launches another NETSCAPE browser window!? Is there a setting I have to change in Mediaplayer? I messed around with the network box in mediaplayer, and still can't get it to work, info appreciated!

When you are using WMP through the proxy settings for IE, have you tried without setting the proxy on?

Also, are you using WMP as a scource to link to others? If so, have a look at this:


Its a Enterprise Deployment Pack for Windows Media Player.

and halfway down it says you can specify preset proxy settings

If it dosen't work without the proxy settings ( without the pack above as well), then have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling again?

Also, do you have access to Newsgroups? If so, check out

how can i Configure proxy setting for IE on the registry

Read other answers

This is really annoying - when the cable modem software was installed it put a proxy setting in IE.

Every time IE loads, it puts it back. I uninstalled their software in Add/Remove, I uncheck the proxy in IE (5.01 - upgraded to 5.5 in hopes of killing this) and it is gone until I exit IE and restart (not reboot). I found the proxy setting in the registry and removed it, which makes it stay away until I reboot. But then it is back.

So, something is putting the entry back in the registry.

Anybody know what it is and / or how to stop it? Some sites I visit won't work with it, so I have to keep turning it off...

Any chance on getting a reply ? I´m not in a hurry it`s more
like saving my post from goin down the drain..lol

Did a scan with Panda online yesterday , came up clean.
My best bet would be that Zonealarm restores those settings

But what about the IP of the proxy? It is not used on the web
more an IP for internal networks, but i am not on a network.

Any ideas before i move on ?
