I saw another post on your website with this same problem, though I don't think that this proxy on my machine originated from the same adware program. Can I use your directions for the other machine to fix my proxy problem, or can you help?  In Windows 7, Control Panel, Internet Connections it says it's set to a proxy with the number in the topic title.  I can't seem to change the setttings.  It will let me check the no proxy box, but when I reopen the control panel the internet connections settings have reverted back to the proxy.  I can connect to the internet by manually turning off the proxy setting in the internet options (on firefox), but if I close the browser and reopen it, I get the proxy problem again and can't connect to the internet until I manually undo the proxy setting.  This proxy setting appears to be interfering with other programs like Amazon Music, so I cannot connect to the internet using that program because of the automatic proxy setting.  Should I follow the same directions as in the other proxy post or since this is a different computer, are the steps different?  Help?

Hello -

Should I follow the same directions as in the other proxy post or since this is a different computer, are the steps different?  Help?

You may find that there are problems related to another computer but not related to yours.


It is always better to start out fresh with a new post in the Am I Infected area of the forum -
