Sorry for the late response. It was doing good all day, then when I reboot my computer as soon as I logged back in the proxy was there again. Then I can remove it again and it stays off until I reboot.

Hi,

Run the RogueKiller and delete all that will be identified.

Restart the computer normally.

If the problem persists then it may be a Syncing issue with Chrome

Remove it.

When done please restart the computer one more time.

How is it now?

Hi,

Check this out and remove the proxy settings if foud.

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:xxxxx 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.
===

Restart the computer normally to reset the registry.

Keep me posted.

Hi,

Is it a Syncing issue?
Are you Syncing Chrome with other devices.
To remove it you will have to reset the Sync in Chrome.

Read this article and proceed.

<<<>>>

Restart the computer normally.

Do not ReSync just yet. Wait a few days.

How is it now?
