Any of my more tech savy/ computer knowledgeable people out there that might be able to help me out? I think I have a virus that keeps turning my internet connection to a proxy server. I never set up one, so I assume it's some sort of malware or virus doing this. I've tried running malware cleaning software, editing the settings in the registry, as well as resetting my internet settings. I feel like at this point I'd have to either send it to someone, or reset my laptop to factory.

Anyone out there with any advice?

why are you editing the registry?

 

what kind of "malware cleaning software" are you using?

 

i would suggest running ADWCleaner and Malwarebytes Anti Malware as a start

Some other forums I've seen suggesting changing the registry proxy settings. Turning off proxy through there. I ran malwarebytes, hitman pro, and avast while in safe mode. But they didn't help
