Switching user machine browser to automatically detect settings from use automatic configuration script

Q: Switching user machine browser to automatically detect settings from use automatic configuration script

We are having issues when users working offsite via VPN the browser proxy settings is on "use automatic configuration script" connecting to cloud proxy. If user connects to office corporate network the browser should switch to "automatic detect
settings" on DHCP IP and proxy address. In our case auto switch does not work. The user has to manually switch from "use automatic configuration script" to "automatic detect settings"

I can't turn off automatic configuration script in Internet Explorer. Actualy, I can uncheck it but once I close IE and reopen, it comes back on. This forces me to go to "tools", "connection", "LAN setting" and unckecking ACS every time I want to connect to the net.
I used to have cable ISP called [email protected] and they used AutoCS(http://proxy:8080 it's still there and I can't removeit).
Does IE have any files hold this kind of information like registry, win.ini or system.ini in win9x? I think I have to go down to that level to fix this problem.
Help me!
 

A:automatic configuration script on IE5

registries a good bet
look for anything named after the cable company
delete it, it is said to be careful in the registry, but only a complete mong could mess it up.
Also look in the registry underlocalmachine/software/microsoft/internetexplorer(maybeIE4/5/)and see if there is anything there also with the same name.
Delete it.
Also run find, again looking for the name, .
If that doesn't work my last but probably not a very good suggestion would be
get a program like driver detective www.driverhq.com
And use it to show u all the .dll files that IE uses and look through them for traces of any associations.
This is very long winded, and will take days.
And most of it will probably be encrypted.

does this help at all

Alright, here's the low-down of what I'm trying to accomplish.
We have proxy setup on the network to gain access to the internet. Internet options is not accessible to view what the automatic configuration script is set to. Is there an alternate way to view what is currently entered into the automatic configuration script text box without having to actually go into IE options? Also, the computer has limited rights making it impossible to access windows explorer. I'm leaning towards possibly a web application that can read the contents of the IE options fields or something similar. Cannot install software on computer again due to limited rights on it. Any feedback on how this can be achieved would be great.

Hi, I am interested in finding out if it is possible (well I'm sure it is, what I really need is how I might go about doing it) to create a script that will go and automatically configure a freshly imaged laptop its WiFi settings to connect to my school's network. In essence what the script needs to do is add a network that it will automatically join with its SSID, set it to WPA-TKIP, and PEAP. Also in addition to that it would be nice if the script could also have the ability to install the network's Certs, attach it to the domain, and configure power settings for the Wireless card (though I already have a method for doing that).

So I'm just wondering if anyone has an idea on how I would go about making such a script that would do all those things. If you could just point me in the right direction, that would be a great help. I've done some searching for this, but so far I have no come out with anything very helpful.

Thanks again.

Please help!

I am unable to uncheck the "use automatic connection script" setting in INTERNET OPTIONS > CONNECTIONS> LAN SETTINGS.

History: my problem began when Google Chrome displayed in the lower bar "resolving proxy". This delays being able to use the Internet for 15 or 20 seconds as the browser tries to resolve the proxy. The same delays occur in Internet Explorer and Firefox as all three browsers use the same Internet options settings.

As I tried to resolve this problem, Internet searches referred me to Internet options and suggested that I unclick the "automatically detect settings" checkbox as well as the "use automatic connection script" checkbox. I tried to do that. It is impossible to do so. I can, apparently, uncheck the boxes but the setting is not savable and the boxes remain checked no matter what.

After much searching on forms I am stumped.

I created a new user for the computer and when in that user the internet options are: "automatically detect settings" - checked; "use automatic connection script" - unchecked. And, the resulting proxy issue does not exist and I am back to fast browsing. But naturally, I need to use my user profile not the one I made up to test the situation.

In the "use automatic connection script" settings the script is "http://dll.sslsecurity.info:8089/config.pac".

Can someone please help me locate and remove whatever is overwriting my ability... Read more

Good day.
I work in an enterprise environment with IE11 and Google Chrome as available browsers. IE11 is configured with an automatic configuration script. On all computers but one, it works as expected.
On the problem machine I (and all other users) can access intranet sites but not internet sites while using IE11. If I remove the script name and enter the IP/Port of the proxy server in the proxy section, it works as expected. Google Chrome works as
expected and pulls the .pac info from IE. Chrome works whether the script or IP are used.
I have run GPUPDATE /FORCE, restarted the computer, run IE with no add-ons, reset IE settings (from the advanced tab on Internet Options), flushed the DNS, renewed the IP, tried accessing websites by IP rather than name.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Version of IE - Internet Explorer 6.0 or 7.0

Operating System - Windows XP SP2

What you have tried - Manually reentering the script location

What the problem is - Automatic Configuration Script randomly drops out of Internet Explorer

Give detail explaining your problem - The Automatic Configuration Script checkbox is ticked and the path to the script has been entered however it randomly drops off on some PCs/laptops sometimes and then the users are unable to browse on the Internet. Manually reentering the details temporarily resolves the issue but the the entries have still been known to drop off afterwards. This is extremely annoying especially on remote PCs. If this has happened to anyone before, any information would be greatly appreciated.

Better to be checked or unchecked. By default it's ticked. Though I noticed occasional pages taking 1-3 seconds to open. Not huge delay but I think unchecking this option may of sped up though I need to test and run some more.

On a home PC with normal broadband I presume there is no merit to this option being checked?

My girlfriend's laptop is having some issues. (I use LogMeIn to remotely do "tech support" for her since she is relatively computer illiterate)She is on a college network. Starting today, she was having a few problems:#1. If she clicks the IE link on the desktop IE opens, then closes itself before it has a chance to load the homepage.#2. If she selects Windows Update from the start menu, IE will open (and actually stay open), but she is redirected to www.msn.com (This is what led me to #3)#3. I noticed in her Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings, that "Use automatic configuration script" was selected and 'http://localhost:9100/proxy.pac" was in the address bar. Did a little googling to try to find a solution, but to no avail. #4. She can access the internet perfectly fine through Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, BUT she cannot go to the college's email or "student portal".

I have to go into Tools, Internet options, Connections, LAN settings, and uncheck the Automatically detect settings everytime I reboot my computer. Then it works fine. I can close IE, open it back up and it still works. But as soon as I shut down my computer and turn it back on, that check mark is back there again.

I've been trying to fix this problem for a while now. At first, it wasn't a big deal because strangely, I could still connect to the internet perfectly fine despite this error message. But it got annoying when I couldn't connect to any of the Windows applications such as Store, Mail, Update, etc. I-Tunes store wouldn't connect either. I also cannot verify my Microsoft account because they won't let me sign in.
I've looked up various solutions online and none of them have worked:

Disable proxy settings
Reset Windows Sockets and IP
System Restore
Virus/Malware Removal
Manually updated drivers
SFC Scan
I thought maybe it was a problem with my WiFi router but I checked the other computers in my house and there were no network problems.
I'm really curious to know why this is happening and if there's possibly another solution for this.

Hello there,

I've got a user who works from home and in the office. When at home he connects to the internet through our proxy. He can connect to his personal internet connection at home using Automatically Detect settings fine, but when in the office this does not work, he has to use the proxy to get out to the internet. We have two networks in the office, he can connect to the other network and get out to the internet using automatically detect settings fine.

When on the network that does not work, all email , msn etc all works fine. He can ping our servers, can ping out to the internet fine. I've checked his DNS, there is no issue there. It's just his browsers won't work. I've tried both IE7 and Firefox 3 both fully updated.

I have been getting this issue for a few months now, and it is very aggravating. I have to restart my router every time I re-boot my computer, and after having it on a bit, it disconnects from the internet, making me restart the router. Now, It's not the router or the cord I use to connect because I have used a different router, and got the same issue, along with a different Ethernet cord. I originally thought it was my motherboard's Ethernet port, but I got a network card, and have the same issue. I have uninstalled a lot of programs that could effect it, but nothing has fixed it. I've googled it, but all I can find is Windows cannot automatically detect this network's proxy settings. I've tried the fixes I found with those, and nothing has fixed.

Alecooly, Welcome to Sevenforums. Hopefully I can be of assistance.

If you use Internet Explorer, try this method: Internet Explorer - Reset

If that doesn't work, try this:
In an elevated command prompt (in start menu search, type cmd, right-click it and select run as administrator), Type "netsh winsock reset" without quotes. Restart your computer. If that doesn't work either, follow the same method but instead type "netsh int ipv4 reset" without quotes. Let me know how this works. Does your updated regular antivirus and updated malwarebytes pick up any other viruses?

You might try a system restore to a point that was before the viruses were present.

Alright, So here is the rundown:

I have Windows 7 Ultimate.

I always have ran Malwarebytes Daily and RegCure.

I had a trojan make it past Malwarebytes so I decided to give Avast a try.

Didnt like Avast so I uninstalled it and went back with Malwarebytes.

Malwarebytes didnt get it out, so I have Hitman Pro when I need it.

Got the 2012 Trojan out.

Now when windows loads it fails to load my Proxy Settings.

Then I run the troubleshooter and it tells me this:

Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings

So I tried all the netsh resets and it didnt help. Tried winsock. Nothing helped.

Went into DevManager and nothing is grayed and no exclamations.

I unistalled the drivers for the net card and wifi card and restarted to let them reinstall. Nothing still.

I opened Network Connections, NOTHING shows up.

I also overwrote the Sys32 file nlasvc.dll and nothing happened.

I am pretty computer literate, but this one has me truly stumped.

Any info would be greatly appreciated as this computer houses my life, 9 website folders, and everything else.

I would really rather not reinstall unless I exhaust all other options. Here is a screen shot of ipconfig /all

This will be my first post so be patient with me if I miss to give any information that you might need now in the beginning.

I've had this issue for some time where my wifi in Windows 10 64 bit says "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings" when I troubleshoot it. After I started to get this message when I troubleshooted the wifi my internet connection and my latency has been really bad and unstable. I've tried to google it and applying all the "fixes" I could find on the internet with no luck of fixing my problem.

I'm connected through a brand new router with a brand new wifi USB receiver that both are ASUS devices. They're also in the top end of the spectrum so I don't think it's they who are messing with my internet because when I ping my router directly I have no issues.

The problems really show when I'm streaming videos or play games online where my ping can rise up to over 5000-10000ms then drop down to my normal 32ms that I had before this issue appeared. I've tried to reinstall all of my wifi drivers but no luck there. I am connected to the internet but as I said before it's a really slow and bad connection.

My ISP contract is a 100/100 mbit/s contract and I do get that when I use those "connection sites" that test your internet connection, however streaming is almost impossible especially live content like twitch.

I've included a picture of my "ipconfig /all" screen... Read more

Yesterday I was setting up a VPN with one of the friend but I got error 720, so I searched Google and found a solution which required me to delete Winsock and Winsock2 from registry, editing a line in nettcpip.inf file.
I got as far as editing it but found out I could not save it at all because Windows 7 does not give user permission to edit this file. I saved it on desktop instead and tried to install from there. it did not go as planned and nothing really changed after. I restarted the computer and voila the internet died on me.

IE could not get a connection,disagnoises says Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings.Also any program that uses IE interface, like some of my game that login though a web style launcher will say not connected to internet.
But other than the IE parts firefox works fine and I can go on msn skype etc.

This is really getting on my nerves since I cannot login to my games anymore, I have tried to reset with netsh for winsock, ip/tcp, protocols, basically anything I could find on the internet, nothing worked. I also tried to reset IE do default with no luck, Proxy is not checked in the settings.
PS To make things more complicated... my CPU usage has been really high ever since I screwed the internet up, I get idle usage around 40-70% with nothing open, with resource manager I can see that service.exe is taking most of that idle usage. No idea why....

someone please help me on this, I really do not want to reinstall... Read more

I was able to get rid of a virus that had been downloaded into my computer, but now when I try to connect to the internet it is "unable to display the page". When I diagnose the connection problems I get a message that says "windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings".

When I go to the control panel, then Network and Internet, then Internet Options, then Connections, and LAN settings the only box that is checked is "Automatically detect settings".

Can you help me fix this? My other laptop connects to the internet just fine, and when I called Comcast for help they said it was a problem with my computer and not my internet connection.

Hi,
 
I have seen a lot about this issue and I have tried many things. 
 
The difference with mine is that the message (windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings) comes up and then 10, 20, 30 seconds or minutes later the browser comes up (IE or Chrome) and I can surf. I have tried the following
 
1) chkdsk
2) ipconfig /reset and renew
3) netsh winsock commands ( 3 kinds)
4) Installed chrome so I could determine it wasn't just IE
5) Called Lenovo who said Malwarebytes was the cause (it wasn't)
6) Lenovo deleted all temp files, %%temp%%, reset IE, ran the following commands ( I might be missing some nomenclature) cleanmgr, inet.cpl, and something like nepa.???
7) Talked with building management and they assured me their network is stable and AP's are working well. I do have a strong signal
8) The computer only does this at the apartment, it's fine elsewhere.
 
Ideas? I could use some. There's got to be something in the configuration at my building. Hmmmmmmmmm

I'm not good with computers so sorry if I explain this badly. I am running Windows 7 and I use a ZyXEL ZyAIR G-220 Wireless USB adapter for internet. I had a virus called something like Cloud AV 2012 so I used Malware Bytes to remove it and it worked just fine. However, now the internet does not seem to work (there's that yellow triangle with the exclamation point) and when I try to run diagnostics, the message "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings" comes up. So far, I've tried rebooting, disabling proxies in all of my browsers, and running scans, but nothing seems to work... Please help, this is urgent! And I also cannot system restore, because apparently windows security was turned off and there are no restore points

Here is a picture of the "ipconfig", as most people who tried to help me have asked for this.

I just recently got a clean install of windows 7 and a few days later my internet stops working. It stopped working in the middle of the night so I just didn't think much of it and went to sleep. I thought it fixed itself when I went on in the morning as the internet worked perfectly fine. Then the day after my internet starts working really slowly getting an average of 250 ping when I try pinging google through my cmd. I opened the troubleshooter and it came up with "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings". I've searched all over the internet and the only two solutions I could really find were to turn off my proxy settings through the lan settings and to check for viruses. I used mrt to scan for viruses and it came up with nothing. I checked my lan settings and I wasn't on a proxy. The only other solution I found was going through my regedit to the directory Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings and deleting the files ProxyEnable and ProxyServer. I deleted ProxyEnable but I couldn't find a ProxyServer in the folder. The issue happens at random times. Sometimes I have an average ping of 38 ping and other times it can be up to 400. But in both scenarios the error persists.

I have Windows 7 and IE 11. Everytime I check use automatically detect settings, every few mintues it keeps unchecking automatically detect settings, and re-checking proxy server. How do I get it to keep the automatically detect settings clicked?

A:Automatic detect settings for proxy setting wont stay clicked?

I'm working on such a problem now. A serious infection can take over the proxy settings, run a full/deep scan with your antivirus. Hopefully you can get it updated first. Then use something like Malwarebytes to ferret out malware.

Hi there

I've trying to invoke a fix on the fly and have got a mixed windows workstation environment on my network. For particular reasons, I don't want my windows XP users to use a Windows 7 machine and equally I don't want a Windows 7 user to use a Windows XP machine. Silly I know but there you go.

I've set up a couple of WMI filters that determine the machine type and have used the following script to ensure that each user type is logged off and the PC restarted.

Option Explicit
Dim objShell
MsgBox"The detected logon method is not supported " & chr(13) & chr(13) & "Please revert to using your own computer." & chr(13) & chr(13) & "This computer will now restart" & chr(13) & chr(13),0,"Invalid Logon Detected."
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -r -f -t 0"

For the Windows XP users on Windows 7 machines it works fine, however when a Windows 7 user logs into a Windows XP machine, it displays the message but won't do the restart bit on the Windows 7 machines.

Do I need to create some elevated permissions for my windows 7 machines.

A:Can I force a user to log off automatically through a logon script?

Try to run interactively.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -r -f -t 0

works on winxp?
------------
Why did you create those user accounts? You don't let them logon! You don't simply log them off but even shutdown.

Ok, So I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 with XP Pro w/ SP2, and I has always run fine for several years. All of a sudden, it would not boot up and I got the blue screen of death. Tried safe mode, realized that the operating system was being stopped at MUP.sys. Yada yada yada.

I took the hard drive out, hooked it up to my desk top, and backed up the files that were previously not backed up. First I had to make the Desktop (also XP Pro) take ownership and control of my laptop folders. I also solved the MUP.sys problem by copying the XP file from the other computer and pasting it into the correct file on the laptop hard drive. PROBLEM SOLVED!

NEW PROBLEM ARISES! Now I put the hard drive back into the laptop. The laptop successfully boots up! BUT since I've assigned all the permissions and ownership of my User Settings and Documents to the Desktop, the laptop automatically created a new account for me on my laptop, since it couldn't take access the old user settings and files. Umm ok. So I make my laptop take ownership back....under the newly created user account (maybe a dumb idea). So now I have my Administrator account, my old user acount (Joe), and this new annoyingly created account (Joe.JMAX). I can access all my files and stuff from the new account....but it doesn't upload any of my personal settings. It treats it like a new account ("please take the XP Tour", yada yada yada).

Unfortunately, when I sign into windows...it only gives me 1 option for a... Read more
