Preferred Solution: Proxy server/ ads by virtual

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=;. 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.

This is a spoofing vulnerability that exists in the affected products and that could enable an attacker to spoof trusted Internet content. Users could believe they are accessing trusted Internet content when in reality they are accessing malicious Internet content, for example a malicious Web site. However, an attacker would first have to persuade a user to visit the attacker’s site to attempt to exploit this vulnerability.
Affected Software:

• Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0 Service Pack 1
• Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 Service Pack 1 and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 Service Pack 2

Note The following software programs include Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 (ISA Server 2000). Customers using these software programs should install the provided ISA Server 2000 security update.

• Microsoft Small Business Server 2000

• Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 Premium Edition

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?

Hi Dicki,
First, please try to reset the Internet Explorer. Some plug-ins may affect the proxy.
If it doesn't work, please try to perform a network capture on the client.
Please check if the client send the http traffic to the proxy server at the correct port.
If the client has sent the http traffic to the proxy server, please check if there is any warning or error in the proxy server.

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?

I recently started administering an existing network of a small company. There are two locations, about 100 miles apart. Each has a Win2000 server and about 12 workstations each, some XP Pro and some Win2000 Pro. Each server is connected to the internet using a DSL account, and the Win2000 servers are configured as routers. I want to be able to map one server to the other, and vice versa. I want users to be able to use a database on one server from the other location. I am not sure how exactly I would best be able to do this; do I need to set up a VPN, and if so, what exactly do I need to click on to enable incoming and outgoing communications, so that these servers can see eachother and talk? Can it be done with just the Win2000Server or do I actually need to buy routers or other software? I have messed around with the VPN connection wizard but can not get a connection established. RRAS is not somehting I am familiar with, so that is where I got stuck. I am pretty new to all of this so as much detailed help would be appreciated!
Thank you,

I'm trying to install ISA Server 2006 on a server 2003 virtual server and I keep getting errors during installation. I read the installation logs after it fails, and it states that it failed to delete a previous SQL Installation. Specifically a folder named MSSQL$MSFW.
This is the error message:
Deleting previous MSDE installation directory <C:\Program Files\microsoft sql server\MSSQL$MSFW>
Setup failed. Error returned: 0x643
MSDE Installation failed, hr=80070643
Performing rollback (uninstall) of firewall

I have also tried installing SQL, but it does not create that folder, and it still fails.
I googled this and other people have had this error and if they created that directory for ISA to delete, it worked. It did not for me though. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone find solutions?
Could it be that ISA will not install on a virtual server? Install notes say nothing and neither does Microsoft.

I am attempting to setup a Windows 2k3 Server with ISA Services for web content filteration.

However, this is the first time working with anything dealing with proxy services. I think I am a little confused on the concept of a "proxy" service. I know its main goal is to block protocol content...mainly for web dealings and whatnot. However, Where is the proxy server supposed to sit on the network?

We only want to use this proxy server for 1 PC. The pc has 2 nic cards, but I do not know whether or not this PC has to be synched up with ADS, plugged into a switch in the network, and also plugged into our firewall?!??!

If anyone could give me some information or link me to some, I would appreciate it.

I have a small network with one win2k pro machine and two 98 machines. One of the win98 machines is the internet gateway with analog proxy server - internet sharing works fine - the problem is that some applications are not able to access the internet thru the proxy, ie, fresh download and internet play games (anarchy online specifically).

The error that fresh download presents is "connection refused, (error10061)". I have searched and only found references to this error referring back to i.e. 5.0 and below - I have i.e. 6.0 on all machines.

Any ideas???

A:Proxy Server


Possibly you'll need to open up the necessary TCP ports. For that specific application (Anarchy Online), you'll need to open the following ports:

80, 7012, 7500-7504

That info is found on the Anarchy Online Support site btw......

I've never really used AnalogX proxy, so I'm not sure exactly how to get to the TCP port settings, however, I imagine it would be accessible through a Firewall Tab or something.

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to explain what a proxy server is and why I should be bothered to "enable" mine. Something which appears I have done without knowing why. I think I ran into the suggestion somewhere in my computer travels.

I would appreciate it.



A:Proxy Server?

A proxy server is a program that acts as an intermediary between computers on your LAN and computers on the Internet. Proxy servers often have a cache built in to make web surfing faster. Some proxy servers also allow the filtering of web content or domains. Additionally, almost all proxy servers support logging.

Just like other internet connection sharing technologies, only one internet connection or internet IP address is needed to serve internet data to all of the workstations on your home network.

Workstations on your home network must request data (like web pages) from the proxy server to access the internet. The proxy server then fetches the internet data, checks it’s filters, and returns it to the workstation that requested it. Because a proxy server does all of the data requesting, each workstation must be configured to make all internet requests from the proxy server - not the internet. Sometimes software does not allow this sort of configuration and can not be used with proxy servers.

Since proxy servers are not a ‘transparent’ connection sharing technology, configuring a proxy server for more than basic web, ftp, news and mail functionality can be challenging for a beginner.

Much as I can live without Incredimail and it's alleged Spyware, it's bloated E:Mails and it's inefficiencies, even after the company has been repeatedly informed that they are lacking in the most basic of Message Rules, my wife and kids love it !!!
In case you don't know, the Message Rules do not allow you to check if the E:Mail is addressed to you, and if it is not, then to leave it on the server, so I constantly get E:Mails forwarded to Outlook Express from my kids that are for me, but they 'accidentally' downloaded "a few days ago" ... yeah, and the rest !!! ... Oh, I should point out that this happens when you have multiple E:Mail addresses under a single useried ... i.e. [email protected], [email protected] & [email protected] ... Incredimail cannot differentiate between these and will download them all if somebody presses the Send & Receive button !!!

An obvious and presumably easy upgrade of their Message Rules would be the most obvious and easiest way around this, I've asked them numerous times but they certainly haven't taken my advice on board as there has been a recent new release with no changes to Message Rules !!!

So, eventually, to my workaround ... does anybody know of any (decent/cheap/free) software that will sit between my PC and the E:Mail programs and perform a similar service to Outlook Express's rules ?!? I have found a few programs that perport to act as servers, but they are very complicated to set up & I'm still no... Read more

What I found in the user agreement for the software was pretty unbelievable, obviously the people who recommended this software didn't read it. The agreement itself is extremely long... but the attached excerpt from the agreement almost knocked me out of my chair:

I'm seeking information on how to go about setting up a proxy server. Currently we deny internet access by machine. That works well if the employee at the machine has no legit reason to be on the internet but it doesn't help with employees that do need the internet just not all of it. Basically i'm interested in setting up something that can block by website. The router has this feature but only for four sites (really cheap router for now). Thanks for your assistance.


A:How to set up a proxy server

You simply install some proxy software on a machine and set up a firewall rule on the router that allows traffic only from the proxy machine. Configure all the clients to use the proxy.

Unless you have a fast connection and lots of clients, any old crap PC should be able to do the job.

Squid+Linux would be the most popular and logical choice, but there are other operating system and proxy suites that work just as well.

I don't know what happened but today when I tried to enter IE I received this message:

The proxy server isn't responding

Check your proxy settings. Go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections. If you are on a LAN, click "LAN settings".Make sure your firewall settings aren't blocking your web access.Ask your system administrator for help.

If I go to LAN and remove the block with a check beside the proxy sever IE starts, however, if I log off and try to reenter the proxy server box has a check mark.
How can I fix this

A:Proxy Server

If you do not use a proxy server it should not be checked so you may have just fixed your own problem. How did it get checked? Who knows? For comparison, I do not require a proxy:

Okay, before I start, I'm just going to apologize for my complete lacking in computer knowledge. I'm not exactly sure where to post this...

Well, i wasn't having this issue before but I am now and I don't know why, but I can't do certain things on the internet, such as signing into my yahoo messenger or getting on my myspace account. When I troubleshoot it always comes up with something to do with my HTTP connection or my proxy server. Yahoo messenger told me to go into my Internet Options>Connections>LAN Settings and then to check the box saying 'use a proxy server for your LAN' and then click on advanced and verify my address and port. But there is nothing in any of those boxes. I have not messed with or changed any settings lately but it just started doing this. Can someone please give me step by step easy instructions on how to fix this? I would be so very thankful.

Thanks in advance,

You are saying that some internet connectivity is present but not a few sites?
Do you have 1 antivirus program and at least two good, recommended anti-spyware programs that you run regularly?
Might want to start with basic security measures and possibly get some help in that arena,


Sometimes system restore will correct the problem, but without measures it is almost sure to return.

I am currently studying in Germany and am living in student housing. You have normal internet connectivity unless you use download over 10 GB of stuff, they then shut off your internet. You can still use the internet using a proxy server provided here but I still cannot connect to Skype or anything else besides Firefox. Is there anything I can do? If it helps I have an early 2008 MacBook.

A:proxy server

In most cases you can configure your applications to use the proxy as well. You will have to find out what the Proxy IP address and Port is to input to the settings. Example: IP-><-Port You may have to ask your Technical Support people for that information.

For Skype:

SKYPE-->Tools-->Options--.Connections-->Automatic Proxy Detection-->(change)-->Save

I hope this helps.

Hey, i'm new to this proxy server thing, and recently learned that you can share an internet connection across the internet. I am at a boarding school, and they have almost everything blocked except for MSN hah, and a kid there had set up a proxy at his house, and connects to the unblocked internet from there. he didn't tell me much of how to do it, but only that it can be very dangerous. How do you do this thing??? Thank you very much in advance!!!

A:Proxy Server

Hello Racoonslayer I am sure you are a nice person, but it would be against the rules for you to be able to bypass the rules your school has placed on internet access & that would make us & you not so nice of people. I am a old guy by your standards but even at my age we have to live with rules to. Some of them I don't mind so bad but others really get under my skin, but we still get by and find something else to do.

I am trying to browse the internet with my computer but it's saying I need a proxy server. It's done this before but it let me choose a default proxy server, but now there is no default to choose from. I have no idea why it did this, it just happened randomly. My computer is a custom built computer, I'm not sure of the specs on it but it's about 4 years old and I am currently using Mozilla Firefox for the browser. I am so frustrated with it right now, any suggestions would be great! Thank you!

A:No Proxy Server

Do you have Firefox with "TorButton" installed ? If so, the proxy server refusing connections message happens when Vidalia isn't running. If you aren't trying to browse anonymously, click off the TorButton in the lower right hand corner of the browser window.

Try another browser. Internet Explorer or Google Chrome.

That's your problem. Unless you have a public hotspot near you the wifi signal would be from someone's private router. They are well within their rights to put a proxy server on it to restrict access.
