Hp made it so I cannot turn off my proxy server but the server is broken and I need to pay them 60 bucks to see if they can fix it (see, not guranteed)

 

Does anyone know how to fix it without needing to turn it off? Because its locked onto being on and I cannot un-check it.

See discussion here: windows 8.1 proxy settings - HP Support Forum - 3854544

 

It could be adware as one user there mentioned....(BrowserSafeGuard)

Check your browser add-ons for that and you might run these two programs to check for other such adware.

AdwCleaner Download

Junkware Removal Tool Download

 

Eset online scanner finds and remove a lot of adware and malware.

Actually, the mention of BrowserSafeGuard being the cause of the problem was linked to

from my first link. It's here: Can't turn off proxy server in my connections setting | DaniWeb

Yes but how can I download programs to help my computer if my proxy is broken and I cannot use the internet on it in ANY way?

Using another computer, download the programs to a flash drive or CD and transfer them to the problem computer.

You won't be able to do the ESET scan.

You can look at your browser(s) add-ons/ plugins/ extensions and disable or remove the ones you didn't install or recognize.

You can check your Add/ Remove program list for toolbars/ browser protectors that have been added by security programs such as AVG.
