Malware preventing change of proxy server settings/ internet access

Q: Malware preventing change of proxy server settings/ internet access

Hello, I've done some searches in the forums and tried a few fixes posted for similar issues but had no luck. BackgroundI am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I recently installed some free software which of course came with some adware, changed my browser settings (home page, default search engines.) 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 withMalwarebytes antimalwareMicrosoft security essentialsSpybot Search and DestroyCCleaner (cleaner and registry)Using regedit to manually delete suspicious registry keysThe FRST fixlist hereThe OTL fix hereAny help you can offer if appreciated. I am accessing the internet via a netbook and have been installing scanners to the infected PC via flash drive.

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  I did a system restore as well, I had Sopho's anti-virus but it was out-of-date, for this was my work computer back in September but think the lease for it ended, so I installed AVG for now just today, most likely the reasoning for the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.

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.

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?
 
Thanks.

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 ..........

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.

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!

Hello,

I have a strange issue. My computer was running fine. Then I took it to the main lobby and hooked up the internet through hard wire. It worked fine as I connected to the interent. When I went back into my office and connected to the internet I got page cannot be displayed. I cleaned out all the temporary internet stuff with ccleaner and did the clean registry, still nothing. A friend gave me hijackthis and I ran it and came up with some strange settings in proxy. So I went into interent options to try and change them, but they don't go away. I do apply, ok, and exit IE but they come right back. I used hijackthis to remove them and it worked. Unfortunately I had to do another presentation in the main lobby, same thing happened. I looked through the first steps and ran them all and can't find anything. I am running XP SP3 and have avg8 free running. I don't do any web surfing or downloading of software. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I'm apologizing now if I have this posted in the wrong place or haven't dug deep enough into the forums for an answer. Also I see that I have some extra stuff in the report because I tried to do the Windows Update but couldn't and forgot to run the clean up again. My problem is that every time I connect to the internet, through any program, I have these settings again. The proxy is enabled to use 127.0.0.1 with the port 5400. I have deleted them and unchecked the boxes and clicked OK but they always come back. They are in my registry too, only when I connect though. I'm afraid to do much in the registry without advice.This all started after I did a reinstall of Internet Explorer and was looking at the Internet Options>Connections>Settings>Proxy>Advanced just to see what was in there, which was nothing. I had to check the box for "Use a proxy..." to look and when I closed out a pop up screen asked me if I was sure I didn't want a proxy and I clicked yes. So fine, I unchecked "Use a proxy..." but then wanted to look at it again. I did all the same but this time a proxy suddenly appeared out of nowhere. I noticed that my web pages were coming up faster and so left it there but then began to get spam email from Canada the next morning and got worried about it. I can't get rid of it now. I can uncheck it everytime I connect but what a pain and is it really gone? What is it up to?I did all the prep work recommended by BC, which took several hours an... Read more

A:Trouble With Proxy Server And Port Settings In Internet Tools

Hi Everyone, I found out what was making my proxy and port default every time, finally. It was my new Web Accelerator from my ISP. That is how they are enabling a faster service. But in the meantime, since I followed your preparation instructions I was able to find the other stuff that most likely caused the not so nice spam emails. I had also installed a "new" program around the same time. In the Print Shop ProPublisher 2000 ver. 10 the BitDefender scan found a Backdoor. Ralpha.A and a Brodcast Dssagent. So I had (1) Trojan.Dloader.BUP, (2) Backdoor.Ralpha.A, (1) Generic.Adw.SaveNow.56AD4696 (leftover from a downloaded screensaver, I think), (1) Brodcast DSSAGENT and (2) Trojan.Dloader.AMA's altogether. The AMA's were sticky. The BitDefender could not get them out. After a few tries, I then downloaded the CounterSpy program (4 to 5 hours on dial-up ) and was able to remove them. A tip: Run your scans again until you get a clean scan. Don't assume that all was found and deleted on the first try. So I'm hoping that all is clean as a whistle ! I hope someone can give my new Hijack This report a look and see if it is OK. Keep in mind that after doing all that scanning and coming back clean I then uninstalled the bad Print Shop ProPublisher and did some other stuff before doing the report. I did the disk clean up and Eusing Registry Cleaner to try and make a clean report. Hope it is OK. I'm wondering if the two that I've marked in red can go? Thanks for your at... Read more

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 127.0.0.1:8877." 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.

My setup is well wired up, no question there. I'm (trying to)install Proxy Server 2.0 on NT4 Server (to which I added service pack 4 & Option Pack 4). The server has two NIC's, one to the LAN and one to the WAN. The hardware (router, hub, cables) works, that's for sure. I got my DNS addresses all written out, both NIC's configured, no WINS server, backlog of addresses entered from 192.168.1.100 to 254... The Internet connection does work, the DHCP is in the router, the NIC on the inside gets its IP adress no problem upon booting, the other one I assigned one to it... I don't get it, and this is just not getting done.
Thank you
 

A:Proxy server can't access internet

What is the error message when you try to ping a site on the WAN? Are the DNS servers internal or external, and, if external, can you ping them by numeric address? Can you run a traceroute anywhere? Can you ping the addie of the NIC-WAN card? It sounds like you may well have tried these, but it certainly helps for us to know what you have and haven't done so we can help ya. Let us know!

Hello,
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.

It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

Hi,I hope you are able to help with me this... I have a friends laptop that is currently badly infected with something that is preventing it from connecting to the internet and is causing the machine to have major slowdowns. I have tried a few fixes already by installing some anti malware software which did detect and remove some trojans, but still the problems are persisting. I am unable to fully update the anti malware software due to no net access but I did however install updates via a USB key that I downloaded. This also was a work computer if you are wondering why the CISCO VPN is showing up. Thanks in advance!

Hello! I am my company's Network Administrator, but I am not very familiar with Proxy-Server (Microsoft, V1.1) which we use as a "firewall". I've been fooling around with it a bit, but here is all I want to do:
I (the admin) would like full Internet Access. We don't block sites or IP's, but I can't connect to things like (here's an example) http://www.exite.com/games )
I can connect, but when the java applet attempts to load, it says it cannot connect.

Same for applications like Napster, or other programs like that where you have to get a connection to the internet to run it.

(Now, don't think I sit around playing games at work and downloading stuff- I need to do some on-line classes for my accounting software and the same thing keeps happening, but I thought I would use a familiar example or two.)

I am using Microsoft Proxy Server V 1.1 on an NT server and a Windows 98 client machine. I connect through a proxy server setting (company name, port 80). I am using a cable modem, which is run directly into the server.
I tried going into the security settings and granting myself full permission, but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas??

I have spent the past year in China and while I was there I had to use some sort of proxy service (Freegate, FreeU, etc.) if I wanted to access certain websites (ie facebook, twitter, blogspot). I am on vacation in the US now and still cannot access these websites sans proxy - almost like China has hacked my computer!

I joke, but this is really annoying. I have cleared my history, cookies, cache, and deleted all proxies. The problem exists on all of my browsers so it has to be with my connection. I have "Automatically Detect Proxies" checked under LAN settings, though I have tried unchecking it. No matter what I do I get the "This connection has timed out" error Firefox. Also, when I try accessing these sites through Chrome it says "Resolving Proxy" in the lower left corner, so I think it somehow is still searching for that proxy and thinks it needs it to access these sites.

I'm clueless and would appreciate any ideas - thanks!

The main Rkill download page contains individual links to renamed versions.   After all of the scans have run successfully you should reboot the computer to restore the processes and Windows Registry entries.   Please run Malwarebytes AntiMalware Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.  After cli...

My fiancee downloaded some free software and really bogged down her Windows 7 machine. Pastaquotes is the one really sticking out in my head. I ran the unistaller for all new programs via windows control panel. Ever since IE and Google Chrome will not allow me to uncheck using a proxy server option. I've attempted to restore to factory defaults for each browser and that did not work.  Firefox will allow the proxy to be shutdown and allow internet access. I've run malwarebytes, I've run rkill, I've run emisoft. I've run other programs to help this to no avail. How do I fix this if possible.

I am unable to connect to the internet with my desktop (all other devices in my house are able to connect)

I go into my browser settings to disable the proxy which I never set up, and, it is automatically re-enabled; Obviously I have malware of some kind;
 
I have ran hitman 64bit, malwarebytes, and neither of them succeeded; I was reading multiple threads on this forum from people who were having the same issue and noticed that the mods/"consultants" here were asking them to have some kind of scanner run and create a log for them to see; I also noticed the solutions they offered were specific to the OP's computer, and thus, could not be used by others reading.

Hello, all.
I have had a problem for about 3 days now which has rendered me completely unable to gain Intenet access on any network, when two other devices in the house (A netbook and DSi) can connect and browse no problem.
The reason I am posting on this particular forum is because on Google searching my problem, I found this thread: http://forums.techguy.org/networking/962185-solved-laptop-suddenly-not-connecting.html
The user who posted the thread has exactly the same problem as me, as well as the exact same laptop (Samsung R-519) and a D-Link router like me. Though somehow her problem was solved by her Father, she didn't specify how and I'm the only computer literate one in the house and so it's up to me only.
In case you couldn't be bothered to read the thread linked above, here is some info on my problem, most likely more in-depth than the above user:
It started off one morning, being constantly stuck at at "Identifying" on the Network pane in the Toolbar, and not granting any access to the Internet. Upon troubleshooting, it came up with the detected error "Windows could not automatically detect this network's Proxy settings."
More recently I have managed to get rid of the "Identifying" status by entering 192.168.1.1, 255.255.255.0, 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.1 in the respective IP address, Subnet mask, Default gateway and Preferred DNS Server sections in the IPv4 Properties.

afternoon all,

i have recently put a lot of effort in to setting up a media server. i'm getting a big issue with windows being stupid and trying to use my proxy server on local addresses even though i told it not to.

this is infuriating because it overloads my proxy server and interferes with the steaming from my media box. if i disable the proxy settings in windows it streams fine. but then i'm obviously not using my caching for the interwebs.

there must be a simple fix that i'm overlooking but i just cant find the solution

HI all,
Having just spent several hours trying to prevent the LAN proxy server being set by some nefarious program I thought I should record the solution and the culprit. The OS is Windows 7.
 
The culprit was connected to an IE toolbar called easyfundraising toolbar.
 
It had been disabled **and did not appear in the (add)remove programs list, yet it was still able to enable and change the LAN proxy settings on every boot and sometimes after a few minutes.
 
This setting prevented the Mcafee technical support connecting remotely to the computer according to computer user. I've no idea if this was a legitimate tech support arrangement.
 
After multiple scans by numerous anti virus and specialist security software in safe mode and in normal boot.
After using ccleaner and msconfig to selectively prevent many start-up programs.
After following advice on tech websites including this one and at Microsoft regarding this LAN proxy being set problem.
 
 
I closely looked again at IE's list of Add Ons all of which had been previously disabled.
This was listed:
TBSB03575 Class
 
It was disabled which led me to believe that it was inactive but some program connected with it (judging by the solution) was setting and resetting the LAN proxy.
 
Clicking 'more information' in IE 'manage add-ons' dialogue revealed this:

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!

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 had problem past month where i had all my browsers Chrome,Opera, Mozilla been hijacked by n.net , so thing is when i do search on Google , the browser goes through to proxy settings , gives same results form google.com but  it is not Google.com it is just imitation of Google. I try to do things before i completely wiped windows and format SSD . Things i try was :
 
1.Install Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2016 do a full scan and fined nothing.
2.Then i try to remove proxy setting from Chrome,Opera,Mozilla it did work for Mozilla but for Opera and Chrome same staff  after i do search they reconfigure to use proxy from local settings and local settings just set proxy setting by some sort of script or something.
3.After that i did some research, and download SpyHunter, they fined few things and i fix it but still nothing is happening , after i do search everything reconfigure to use proxy from local settings.
4.Then i reinstall Windows 10 clean installation i installed NOD 32 clean with paid licence key .Every thing was fixed . After few days it happened again.
 
And i come here to ask for experienced people.
