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.)

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.

Hi All

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.

A:Internet Options Proxy Server setting won't stay off.

Try resetting IE11, Tools> Internet Options Advanced tab, Reset button.

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'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 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.

 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.

Hello, it has been a while since I had this problem but I never gave any attention to it (actually I did but I just thought it was something from my ISP...) but now it is becoming really annoying and after making some research, this problem might be more dangerous than what it seems to be.
So I believe I have tried everything in my power to stop this, nothing. I tried deleting the proxy setting from the registry in safe mode, did not work. Secondly, I have downloaded Malwarebytes, scanned, deleted the dangerous files. In the same time, downloaded CCleaner, cleaned everything and rebooted, also didn't work. Third, I have downloaded AdwCleaner, used it. Found some things, deleted them also. Rebooted, proxy setting still there. Fourth, downloaded Junkware Removal, found something in Windows files, deleted it. Reboot, still there.
And now I am at my end with it, have no idea what to do and am actually a little scared, I have a lot of files and do not want to do a full restoration. Unfortunately, a simple restoration is not possible because for some reason my OS deletes all the old ones.
For more clarification, I am talking about this: 
It keeps checking back by itself, no matter what. It sometimes blocks websites, sometimes is slow as hell. And recently, more than a few times... It is completely broken. Firefox tells me that the proxy server is not working and I have to go to its settings and deactivate it from t... Read more

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 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.

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

Any ideas before i move on ?

best regards

I need your help on a rare problem.

I have enabled "Use Proxy Server" in Internet Option to access Internet. The setting work fine and I have no problem on surfing. However, after surfing for a few hours, IE will suddenly slow down and then I can't go to any web site. I found that the "Use Proxy Server checkbox will be unchecked. Everything resume normal after I enable the proxy server again. The problem will occur several times each day. It is not limited to any specific site and I can't find any special pattern. It just occurs randomly.

I have already used adAware to remove all adware in my machine and there is no virus infection found by Norton Anti-virus. (The signature file is up to date)

P.S. I am using Windows 98 SE and IE 5.5 SP2.

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?

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?

Afternoon everyone i was wondering if someone could help me, i am really keen to learn how to set up a proxy server and was wondering what would be the best place to start, is there a certain application i need to set this up?

A:Advice setting up a proxy

You can use a premade site. There are many on the web. If you are looking to make your own then you will need a web server of some type. Most proxy scripts are for PHP, so once you complete learning web servers, then you can learn PHP.

I am curious to why you want a proxy. Generally they are used for illegal purposes. Often to circumvent web/content filters or other forms of network security. However most decent security setups can detect proxies and block them.

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...

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.
