I removed a virus (SearchProtect) from my niece's computer and everything seems okay now except that the computer cannot connect to the internet. It says "Cannot Connect to the proxy server". She does not use a proxy server, and when I go into Internet Tools, Connections, Lan Settings, etc. and have it detect the setting automatically it immediately reverts back to "Use a proxy server".
I also removed a trial version of McAfee that had expired on her computer. Either the virus or McAfee wont allow me to change the proxy server settings in internet explorer to "Automatically Detect".
I am assuming this is a registry setting that needs changed or perhaps something in the Group Policy but I do not know where to look or what to do.
The PC is running Windows 8.1 and IE10. IE10 is the only browser on the PC.
Can someone please help.
