Hey guys, I've been battling this proxy setting that will not go away, instead of staying on automatic, the internet settings is always on proxy, to 127.0.0.1 on port 56507, for both http and secure.

I've run MB and my antivirus, both at full scan, no files left out, both caught a few unrelated pups, I've gone through my program list and got rid of any unwanted/untrusted software, no fix

Really scratching my head, I have 0 access to the internet right now, though any browser, I'm on my phone right now, any help would be appreciated

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

Remove the proxy settings.

In Internet Explorer go to Tools - Internet Options - Connections Tab - Lan Settings and remove the reference to 127.0.0.1:56507 if found, then uncheck "Use a proxy server" and check "Automatically detect settings".

If required press the Apply button.

If you use Firefox in Tools Menu > Options... > Advanced Tab > Network Tab > Connection > Settings. Select the Auto-detect proxy settings for this network option. Or no proxy if you do not need it.

Next,

Click the StartBtn.gif button. In the Search box, type Command Prompt, and then, in the list of results, double-click Command Prompt.

at the cursor type:
ipconfig /flushdns <-- (A space between g and / is needed)

ipconfig /release

repeat with
ipconfig /renew

Then hit Enter, type Exit, hit the Enter key.

You may need to run CMD - Command Prompt on Vista - Windows 7/8 with Elevated Privilege
