Hi, I've been dealing with ware all morning that i'm fairly sure i got from some shady installer wizard that had bundled things such as task bars, trojans, and malware that i had foolishly assumed were part of the installer. I've got the majority of the ware i believe, but there's two things troubling me. The first of which being a process called SCApp, (I think this is a backdoor for other ware) which has proved near impossible to delete, and the problem in the title, the auto proxy server enabling. I believe that it's entirely possible these two are intertwined. I know for sure that SCApp is opening internet explorer (a browser i never use) and putting ads in my face. The auto proxy enabling is getting irritating, as it prevents me from using discord for long periods of time. I have also encountered something called "roracoon" in my malwarebytes scans. It keeps popping up. Thanks so much for taking your time to help me solve these issues. I really appreciate it.
