Hi,

        I have a Windows 7 Professional Dell Laptop. This is an official laptop given by my organisation. When we work in the office LAN, certain proxy settings need to be used to access the network and the same limits the use of certain websites as per company policy. However, when Iam at home, I disable the same and access through my home internet. This has been going on smoothly for close to 2 years now. 

From today, I find that as soon as I disable proxy settings and come out, the same is not disabled. When I go back and check immediately, proxy setting is still showing as enabled. I restarted but the same didn't fix it. I googled and found a few links with the same topic in ur website but wasn't sure of following the solution before taking ur advice. Please suggest.

 

 

Thanks & Regards.

You should first take this up with your IT department. Your permissions may have been changed for a reason, and any advice given here at BC may cause problems with what your CIO wants to happen.

FWIW:  It would be a violation of forum rules to assist you in obviating security policies set by the company you work for, which is the owner of that system.

Thanks! Will check with my IT whether its a policy change or is it happening only for me. My initial thought was this was a malware and hence came here. Will come back depending on the status.

Even if it is malware...the proper agency for such would still be your employer...the employer has a vested interest in knowing that a given system or possibly several systems...have a malware situation.
