Hello,

 

I've seen a couple of threads with a similar issue that was able to be resolved and I'm hoping someone can help me.  When I go into IE I get an message stating that the proxy servier isn't responding.  I've unchecked the proxy server box in the LAN settings in IE, but it won't stay unchecked.  I've run Adwcleaner which found a bunch of things but still no matter what the proxy box refuses to stay unchecked.

 

I am able to use Firefox which is not sending me through a proxy.  But of course the problem is other applications that access the internet are now trying to use the proxy and are not working.  Any help would be appreciated, I can't find anything online that will work!

Nevermind - I found that if I run IE as "Administrator" I am able to make the proxy box stay unchecked.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
