One of the major problem with proxy is when you open your browser it says proxy server not reaponding and even if u disable it from internet options-conmections-lan-uncheck proxy,it enables automatically or when you restart and it happens due to infection running in task manager or due to some malware

To remove it completely you need to remove the infection manually or by the tool...
I will tell you first the simple way just download and run hitman pro tool
But if you want to do it manually without any tool
Open run command box(windows+R) then type (regedit) and press enter it will ask for permission just press yes it will take you to the registry
There you will find computer below that click on HKEY_CURRENT_USER and press right arrow key it will expand
then you will find software option click on that and press right arrow key again it will expand
Then go to microsoft and expand it also
After then go to windows and expand it in same way like i tild u above
Then you will find current version there
Just click on that and expand
Then you will find internet setting
In that you will be able to see some entries on the right hand side of the screen
Find out the proxy enable option there and proxy http option
First right click on proxy enable it will give you option to modify click modify and replace 1 with zero in (value data)then press ok
After that go to proxy http just below the proxy enable option
Right click and delete it
Then reset your internet explorer by going to internet options-advanced-reset
It will open a window just click on reset there without making any changes
Then try to run it will fix the proxy problem
If you find this solution working or any problem to execute this this please reply

Editing the registry is one of the last options you want to do.  There are other options for resolving this which are safer.  If you are not familiar with editing the registry you need to be aware that if an improper change is made it can result in tuning your computer into a very expensive door stop.  If you do edit the registry you should back it up before making any changes in the registry.
To backup the registry please down load and install Tweaking.com Registry Backup.
Play the video below for operating instructions.

As suggested previously, a virus or malware could be causing this.  For this reason I would like for you to run the following scans.

Please run Malwarebytes AntiMalware

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.  After clicking on the link the download will start automatically.
1)  Double-click on mbam-setup.exe, then click on Run to install the application, follow the prompts through the installation.
2)  Malwarebytes will automatically open.  If this is the first time you have run this version of Malwarbytes you will see an image like the one below.
Click on Update Now, after Malwarebytes is updated click on Scan.
If this isn't the first time you have run this version, then you will see an image like the one below.  Click on Scan
You will be prompted to update Malwarebytes, to do so click on Update Now.
3)  The scan will automatically run now.
4)  When the scan is complete the results will be displayed.  Click on Quarantine All, then click on Apply Actions
5)  To complete any actions taken you will be asked if you want to restart your computer, click on Yes
6)  Please post the Malwarebytes log.
To find your Malwarebytes log,download mbam-check.exe from here and save it to your desktop.
To open the log double click on mbam-check.exe on your desktop.  When the log opens, scroll down toward the bottom of the log to Quarantined Items.  Copy and paste this in your next post.

Please run the ESET OnlineScan

This scan takes quite a long time to run, so be prepared to have the time to allow this to run till it is completed.

***Please note. If you run this scan using Internet Explorer you won't need to download the Eset Smartinstaller.***

  • Click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • The ESET Online Scanner page will open, click on Yes, I agree to the trems of use, then click on Start, the scan will now begine.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu.png icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
