Hi -

 

Fixing my mothers computer remotely. I was able to detect and clean a ton of malware. The malware was essentially redirecting through a local proxy. No Big deal i thought. ill just remove the files and disable the proxy....

 

I cannot disable the proxy, it says some settings are being managed by system adminsitrator. I looked into this and decided to check users there was a user called "new" as an admin, so looks like the virus created a user to manage...

 

I went ahead and deleted user new, still cant disable or change proxy settings. Firefox is the only browser that works, rest of computer tryes to go through 127.0.0.1:8080 I cannot fix this for the life of me. 

 

Windows 10 Pro.

I also looked through registry and could not find anything wrong based on everything i read. i deleted all proxy settings in registry. I also looked in group policy to see if something was changed in there, nothing.
