I work at a smallPC repair shop. This week alone I have seen 4 pcs with an issue pertaining to an enabled proxy (and as we all know, enabled proxy is virus damage 99% of the time, at least for the home/smb user). HOWEVER - this time - it is permanent. There is a small text saying only sys admin can make changes to some properties
I have seen one post (google) pertaining to this exact (almost) issue and it was here on bleeping.. FRST was run and the OP had resolved the issue. His symptoms were that when he changed it, It would automatically revert. My symptoms are that they are unchangeable, at all.
There was an FRST fixlog file that fixed it for him. I looked at the reg keys listed in that file and checked in the registry to see what, if anything, deiifered. I then applied the fix via FRST and it made the proxy settings changeable and now reverting. SO I am in the same boat as the other guy BUT the fixlog did not solve the issue.
I have now seen this problem on 7 pro and HP and 8
I have used malwarebytes, superanti, avira, tdss (all with HD as slave and then back in customer PC) then combofix and hitmanpro. I delete all temp files for user and in windows directory
I will upload frst logs in separate, individual posts
