Internet Explorer Proxy Setting

Q: Internet Explorer Proxy Setting

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?

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer Proxy Setting

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.)

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.

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.

Hello,

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.

Hi All

I want traffic to a specific secure website(*.paypal.com) to go through a Proxy server and port - 192.168.34.34 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:

192.168.34.34 1818 *paypal.com
But I don't think this will work Any idea how to do this? certainly it must be possible?

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.

No.

Each application will have it's own proxy settings. Some, such as Firefox, will have the option of using system settings but this must be manually selected. Others will require manual proxy settings.

Hi,
We are setting up our Windows 7 PC's to use a proxy server for Internet access, as part of this we are ticking the bypass proxy for local addresses check box and entering the required server names.
What we are seeing though is if the servername has a hyphen in it's name it seems to split it over two lines., for example if the address web-mail.domainname.com is not the first in the line it gets split at the hyphen for example:
mailserver.domain.com;web-
mail.domain.com
Is this just a display issue? Or is there a problem with using hyphens in the servername?

I went on a vacation recently and came back to discover that my housesitter messed my computer up. I kept getting the warnings about my computer being infected with several viruses (malicious adware software), I can't remember exactly which one it was. I got rid of it, but then I could not get on the internet. I finally discovered a post about unchecking "Use a proxy server for your LAN", so I unchecked it and was able to access the internet. However, whenever I try to google anything, it takes me to different "search" websites instead of linking me directly to the site I want. Or, it will send me to a website that's trying to sell me something and I have to completely close IE down. This is getting really old, and I don't know how to fix it. If I recheck the proxy server box, I cannot get on the internet again. If anyone knows how to fix this, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

I repaired a laptop for a friend who was missing 1 year of MS updates and had expired virus program. Computer was loaded with viruses. Using ProcessExplorer and a host of the usual virus removal tools it appears that the machine was cleaned when I worked on it and appears to be now. Problem is that a proxy keeps getting added to Internet Explorer. This was the situation before and after he used the computer for about 2 weeks, it reappeared again.

Am I wrong to suspect it having something to do with his unsecured WiFi router? Could someone with an infected computer be tapping in and re-infecting his laptop ? I have a HiJackThis file ready to post if someone is willing to assist me with this. There is an entry about a Proxyoveride that seems suspicious.

I only want to have 123.456.1.1 and 123.456.1.2 proxied, anything else that is browsed would be unproxied and go directly to the internet. I suppose it does not have to be in Internet Explorer, it just has to be a system wide setting.

Thanks,

Dan

Hi,
I'm facing a strange problem on a lot of Windows machines at my company: the Internet Explorer proxy settings keeps changing.
The proxy settings are being set by a Domain GPO, but on several machines the proxy settings revert back do "Automatically detect settings" from time to time. I'm pretty sure that the GPO is rightly configured. I just need to run
gpupdate /force to correct the proxy settings. And all machines have a up-to-dated antivirus software installed.
Now the strange thing: while using Procmon to find out which process changed the AutoConfigURL registry key, I found that
iexplore.exe process executed by itself a RegDeleteKey command to clear this key.

I've tried disabling several add-ons, but the problem is still happening. Does anyone know if there is a way to discover "what" inside IE is removing the proxy configurations? Or if something is invoking IE to do this nasty job? :P
Tks

A:Internet Explorer keeps changing proxy settings

Actually I found out what happened.
Here in Brazil almost every bank and financial institution demand us to install a security plugin to help on protecting their internet banking access. These plugins work almost independently, they update by themselves and take any necessary action without
warning the user.
And that's what happended with us: one of the most used internet banking by the employees updated its security plugin automatically, and this new version was checking if the proxy configured in IE was suspicious. Sadly, for some reason it considered
our proxy address as a threat and removed it using the RegDeleteKey command. Just some minutes after we put back the proxy address, the plugin removed it again.
This loop lasted for almost two weeks. After figuring out what was happening, I have contacted the support personel of this bank. They knew that it was a known issue, and executed a remote action to downgrade their little monster, which
solved the problem.

Woops! I posted this in tips section. Reposting here. Sorry.

I tried to find info in forum on this but couldn't.
I started out with Internet Explorer (5.) after re-istalling Win98 which worked very well and loaded quickly. Then I downloaded Netscape but did not make it my default(?).
After that, IE became slow to load and now I get the message "detecting proxy settings" and I ususally lose patience and click on home button which works but it's still so slow. I'm on DSL. I use both Netscape and Internet Explorer to view how my html appears when working on my site.
Any suggestions for this problem and what the heck does detecting proxy settings mean.
Thanks, Marianne
 

A:Internet Explorer: detecting proxy settings

I don't have DSL, just regular DUN. Does DSL create a DSL folder like DUN has? Just curious.

I would check the settings in IE, Tools>Internet Options>Connections>Settings, to see if Use a proxy server is checked. If so, uncheck it, and test IE. If not, do you have a site that you can look at for the DSL FAQ's?

Which browser do you want to be your default?
To make Internet Explorer the default Tools>Internet Options>Programs>Place a checkmark at the bottom of the page for Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser otherwise, uncheck it to make another browser the default.

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 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.
 
Thanks!

Hi.
Can anyone tell me the right format for a Proxy Exception to cover a domain with subdomains?There are several examples covering the use of wildcards -
like this MS article:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd361953.aspx
The "Enter a wildcard at the beginning of an Internet address..." example does not cover the useage of subdomains :-(
a.b.c.microsoft.com

Do I use\ set the proxy exception to "*.*.*.microsoft.com" or is "*.microsoft.com" enough to cover all the a.b.c subdomains?

A:Internet Explorer Proxy Exception - Syntax format for covering subdomains?

Hi,
As the document states,  using a wildcard at the beginning of an Internet address, IP address, or domain name to bypass servers
with a common ending. For example, use "*.example.com" to bypass any entries ending in ".example.com" (such as "some.example.com" and "www.example.com"). 

So I think *.microsoft.com is enough to cover all the subdomains.
