Windows 7: Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings

19 Apr 2012   #1

Windos 7 32 Bit
Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings

Alright, So here is the rundown:

I have Windows 7 Ultimate.

I always have ran Malwarebytes Daily and RegCure.

I had a trojan make it past Malwarebytes so I decided to give Avast a try.

Didnt like Avast so I uninstalled it and went back with Malwarebytes.

Malwarebytes didnt get it out, so I have Hitman Pro when I need it.

Got the 2012 Trojan out.

Now when windows loads it fails to load my Proxy Settings.

Then I run the troubleshooter and it tells me this:

Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings

So I tried all the netsh resets and it didnt help. Tried winsock. Nothing helped.

Went into DevManager and nothing is grayed and no exclamations.

I unistalled the drivers for the net card and wifi card and restarted to let them reinstall. Nothing still.

I opened Network Connections, NOTHING shows up.

I also overwrote the Sys32 file nlasvc.dll and nothing happened.

I am pretty computer literate, but this one has me truly stumped.

Any info would be greatly appreciated as this computer houses my life, 9 website folders, and everything else.

I would really rather not reinstall unless I exhaust all other options. Here is a screen shot of ipconfig /all

Here's what I came up with, so far. Maybe it will help?
