Re: PROXY SERVER!!!!!

I didn't want to do it this way but One more try...

Click Strart then run type in cmd then regedit

To be sure the nothing horrible is done and irreversible select from the file menu export Give it a filename you'll recognize (I use oldreg.reg)

Now
Under the path My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ Find the name Proxy Enable click on it.. Set it to (0)Zero. exit, reboot.. Let me know if this works!!

Re: PROXY SERVER!!!!!

If you change your proxy settings while in safe mode, it'll be fixed when you boot to normal mode.

Re: PROXY SERVER!!!!!

Since you can't unregister it and it keeps coming back it has to be a service that is loading it, what I would do is right click on my computer then click manage, then click the + sign next to services and applications, highlight services, then look for that service that's loading the proxy, you can disable it or stop it.
