Over the weekend I used an unsecure hotel WiFi network, since then I have been plagued with a very strange proxy server incident.
I have gone to the network settings and cleared the proxy address several times, but, it reappears and some how turns the automatic proxy script on without my knowledge. When I go back to check after clearing the address and saving, "there it is again".
I thought I was partally safe because I was using HSS Elite (Hotspot Shield Elite) and my data is bitlocker encrypted with chip capability.
Somehow my HSS keeps reverting back to trial version and it is a paid version. No crack.
also, I have a bowser hijack problem with this URL: "http://t.msn.com .
 
I am using a tablet: Lenovo Yoga thinkpad Ultrabook with windows 8.1
 
Any ideas?

The fast easy way is to do a System Restore to a date that precedes last weekend.

 

PS: If that works, don't forget that a System Restore does not remove files, thus you'd need to scan with malware programs like Malwarebytes and Superantispyware, as well s your AV program, to be sure there are no remnants, just waiting to start up again.
