Q: Proxy settings hijacked by ɴ.net/server.pac

Hi,
 
I am new to this forum and i am hoping to get some help for more experienced   people then me, i will explaining problem below.
 
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.

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 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.

Hello,
 
I've seen a couple of threads with a similar issue that was able to be resolved and I'm hoping someone can help me.  When I go into IE I get an message stating that the proxy servier isn't responding.  I've unchecked the proxy server box in the LAN settings in IE, but it won't stay unchecked.  I've run Adwcleaner which found a bunch of things but still no matter what the proxy box refuses to stay unchecked.
 
I am able to use Firefox which is not sending me through a proxy.  But of course the problem is other applications that access the internet are now trying to use the proxy and are not working.  Any help would be appreciated, I can't find anything online that will work!

Like everybody else in the world, I somehow managed to get the nfra.exe virus that hijacks your search engines and redirects your browser. MalwareBytes found and deleted it, my internet didn't work at all (IE8 or Firefox) so I did a SystemRestore from a week or so ago. My IE works but Firefox still has the hijacked proxy settings on it.

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

many thanks

I am confused with Proxy server settings.

When I add an IP address to the LAN settings by "Use Proxy for LAN" , am I bypassing the proxy server set up by the host web site ?

First of all I dont understand the who is setting up this proxy server. If a web host is setting up proxy server, then how can I change it by changing settings on my browser ?

If this proxy seting is for my desktop, then I dont have any proxy server set on my desktop. So whats the point in setting proxy ?

Pls explain.

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:

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:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/614253/proxy-hijack-to-http%C9%B4netserverpac-and-google-redirects/

 
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.

Normally, I connect to my ISP through a dial-up connection. However, while gaining remote access to my workplace I was experimenting with using the proxy server at work for the Internet and changed my Internet properties to use a proxy server and I entered the info under the connections tab, clicking LAN. This didn't work and so I deleted the proxy server settings and tried to go back to my normal dial-up internet connection through my ISP but that won't work now. It's looking for the proxy server even though I erased the settings under Connections, LAN. I can't find any trace of the proxy settings yet the computer dials up to my ISP, connects okay(validates password), and then when I try to access a web page it begins searching for the proxy server I had entered. Eventually, I get a message saying that it can't find the server PROLIANT1600, which was the proxy server I entered. How can I get rid of this Proxy server info?
I need to get my old Internet connection back. Thanks for any help.

Two days ago I was having problems with firefox freezing and Mcafee anti-virus showing warnings "your PC is at risk". I would turn it back on, but it would go off again. I used the Mcafee Virtual Technician and it identified a couple of problems, including "proxy server settings incorrect".
I contacted Mcafee and they re-installed Mcafee and unchecked the box in LAN settings that says "use a proxy server for LAN".
Mcafee and firefox are working OK again now, but the "use a proxy server for LAN" box keeps re-checking itself.
How can I keep this box unchecked, and prevent it from re-occurring?
Also, in HTTP settings, I have unchecked the box for "use HTTP1.1 through proxy connections" and I have no idea if this is useful or recommended. Help, please.

So i am also trying to reinstall IE6 on it but when it tries to connect to the download site it can't, one option was to connect using a proxy server. My problem is i dont know my proxy server settings. (address and port) how would i find that out?(DSL)
 

A:Solved: Proxy Server Settings.....plz help!!!

Not sure if this is a security problem, but there is one way to find out.

Go to www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe Click on the Hijackthis.exe.

Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

*Note: When you download Hijack This Do Not download it to a temp folder or to the desktop. Create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This and put it in that folder.

Hello,
I really hope someone can assist me. I have a wireless modem from qwest that is directly connected by ethernet to my desktop. My lap top has a linksys network adapter card (wireless g notebook adapter), which as worked great until yesterday. I was deleting some programs off of my laptop to make room for my micorosoft office suite. Ever since then it will not connect to the internet. It says "you are connected to the access point, but the internet can not be found." Obviously I can conncet via my tower. I'm thinking my local area network setting...maybe the proxy server setting need to be adjusted. Am I on the correct path? or is it something else. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:LAN Settings-proxy server for wireless connection

hey becca,
What is the local IP address of the laptop? Or of the desktop? Or subnet and gateway?

I am assuming that the connection to the access point you are mentioning is giving you a local IP address...

Also, Is the laptop wireless connection setup as DHCP in the TCP/IP properties?

If you are using only the Qwest Wireless router that they sent to you for Internet access for all PC's, no proxy settings need to be changed or added....

Hello all,

I would very much appreciate an answer to ease my anxiety. To be able to watch a basketball game on a foreign tv channel on-line, I was advised (on a fan forum) to connect to some member's computer since the tv site only allowed people who lived in that country to connect to the site and observe the game. I normally use Firefox but the directions were for Internet Explorer. I connected ("use a Proxy server for your lan" - entered the given address and port numbers), watched the game and ... forgot to change the LAN settings back to what they previously were. In fact, I turned off the internet explorer and was using firefox for 1.5 days before I remembered to change the settings on IE. I have a wireless connection and it was on all this time. My question is: could this member whose proxy I was using (or anyone else) access the content of my computer? If so, is there a way to check? Should I worry about viruses? I have a firewall etc. Thank you very much for your help!

Hi,  I made the mistake of using some software that was bundled with other programs.  I have tried to delete everything that seemed malicious and have used several trojan finder/remover programs.  They seem to have found and removed some things but now I am having another problem.  Whenever I start the computer, I find that it is trying to use a proxy server and can't connect to the internet.  I have gone in and deleted all of the info in the proxy settings window and disabled the proxy server, then check automatically detect.  After I check OK and close the window, I go back and the proxy server is checked again and the info that I deleted is back.  The only way I can get the computer to connect to the internet is to start in safe mode with networking and delete the settings.  This will hold while I am in safe mode but when I reboot normally, the problem is back.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

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 been having numerous problems with this machine (and another desktop). Something keeps changing my Internet options to "use proxy server" In the Options tool menu. I am also getting script error warnings now on IE. I had to make IE my default browser today because I couldn't see some of the buttons on the forum pages that I follow. I.E. "comment", "quote" etc. while having Firefox set as my default browser. I usually use Firefox. I had problems last week and Mozilla recommended a "beta" version 34 but that didn't fix the issues. I also paid for and activated Malwarebytes Pro and it found problems on multiple scans on this machine after restarts.

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

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.

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

Hi. My name is Brian, and I would be happy to look into your issue.
 
- General Instructions -
Please read all instructions and fixes thoroughly. Read the ENTIRE post BEFORE performing any steps so you understand all that needs to be done.
I would advise printing any instructions for easy reference as some of the fixes may require you to boot in Safe mode. Access to these instructions may not be available in Safe Mode.
Any fixes provided by myself are for this log file only and should not be used on any other systems.
Do not run any other removal software or perform updates other than the ones I provide, as it will complicate the cleaning process.
It's very likely that part of our cleanup will include emptying your recycle bin. If you use your recycle bin as an archive and do not wish this to be emptied, please let me know.
You have 4 days to reply to each post or the topic will be closed.
Please feel free to ask any questions, especially if you are having problems with my instructions.

All tools that I have you download should be placed on the desktop unless otherwise stated. If you are familiar with how to save files to the desktop then you can skip this step.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Home (Premium) didn't find anything.
 
Any ideas?
 
EDIT: Emsisoft Emergency Kit seemed to have found something very relevant. I deleted the file and restarted but it keeps appearing in 'Automatic proxy setup' :/

Hello I found this topic (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/600543/strange-entry-in-lan-proxy-settings-that-i-cannot-delete) that dealt with the same issue that I had but it has since then been closed, so I cannot reply. My problem is identical, my LAN settings keep being changed to include "http://ɴ.net/proxy.pac". But I don't seem to have installed the same programs as the other user, so my infection must have come from something else. I have downloaded Malewarebytes, ADWClaner but it's still there. So I have Farbar Recovery Scan and RogueKiller ready to go. I'm ready to provide any information and files that are needed to help me get this thing off my computer!

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!

Why we should setup a self-owned DNS server and Proxy server for enterprise environment, rather than using an external free service.
