I'm using a Windows 8.1 64-bit computer that had PastaLeads on it. It was removed by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but now there is a persistent proxy set. I receive the message "Check your proxy settings 127.0.0.1:8800". It cannot be disabled by turning it off in the Internet Explorer settings. It keeps re-enabling. I can go online using Firefox if I set it to not use any proxy, but nothing else works online.

I need help to remove this proxy.

Sorry that the DIY guide was not enough, but it has worked on the same problem several times that I know of. Your Windows 8.1 may be the reason ??

 

Please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal Preparation Guide starting at Step 6.

  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create two logs. Note: Windows 8.1 Users will not be able run DDS and create a log

When you have done that, Copy and Paste your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs or you're using Windows 8.1, then still start the new topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

After you post your request for help, please reply back in this topic with a link to the new topic so we can close this one, to prevent others answering incorrectly.

As they do get Very busy at times, please post there as soon as you can for a place in the queue.

 

Good Luck -

I am having the same problem as others with "The proxy server isn’t responding. Check your proxy settings 127.0.0.1:8800."

The proxy keeps reappearing even though I attempt to disable it. Since I'm running Windows 8.1, I guess I can't run DDS.

So far I've used the following programs in an attempt to remove the problem:

  • Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
  • RogueKiller
  • AdwCleaner
  • Emsisoft Anti-Malware
  • TDSSKiller
  • Hitman Pro

The computer I am working on belongs to someone else that ran Malwarebytes to clean up malware and this proxy occured after removal. PastaLeads was one of the items removed.

If you cannot get DDS to work, please try this instead.

Please download RSIT by random/random from the link provided for your operating system and save it to your desktop.This tool needs to run while the computer is connected to the Internet. If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding RSIT attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.
  • Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop.
  • Double-click on RSIT.exe to start the program.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Read the disclaimer and click Continue.
  • When the scan is complete, a text file named log.txt will automatically open in Notepad.
  • Another text file named info.txt will open minimized.
  • Save the log files to your desktop and copy/paste the contents of log.txt by highlighting everything and pressing Ctrl+C.
  • After highlighting, right-click, choose Copy and then paste the contents into a new topic in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here.
  • Copies of both log files are automatically saved in the C:\RSIT folder which the tool creates during the scan.
Important: Be sure to mention that you tried to follow the Prep Guide but were unable to get DDS to run.
