My Dell inspiron15 3000 series laptop is giving me issues with my proxy settings on the internet explore on my Windows 8 side of my dell laptop keeps giving me this message 
  • Check your proxy settings 127.0.0.1:5050.
    From the Settings charm, Go to Change PC settings > Network > Proxy.
  • Make sure your firewall settings aren’t blocking your web access.
  • Ask your system administrator for help.
If someone can help me that would be appreciated.

Are you using a Proxy to get on the Net normally?

If not, sounds like you're infected.

On the other hand, if you do use a proxy all the time, you should wait 'till one of the networking experts answers your question.

I'll ask the question again.

Do you normally use proxies or not?

Then I agree with you, it sounds like you're infected.

This may have to be transfered to the virus specialists, but in the meantime, you could try downloading free Malwarebytes and free Superantispyware (careful to not accept a trial version) and scan with both.
