Windows 7: "Proxy server" checks itself automatically

"Proxy server" checks itself automatically

When entering Internet properties -> connection -> LAN settings, the box named "Use a proxy server for your LAN" keeps checking itself! I have to constantly un-check this box while surfing to make sure that all sites load. Could someone help me out with this issue?

I'm not sure where you are seeing this proxy setting to uncheck it?

Is the proxy setting uncheck in Internet Explorer "or which ever browser you are using"?

I have to uncheck it all the time, it keeps checking itself (the box that is highlighted in yellow, yes). I'm using Chrome, but the browser doesn't really matter as these are the internet settings for Windows 7 if I'm not mistaken.

Not sure with Chrome but in IE use the Advanced tab from internet options then hit the Reset button as there could be something overriding the proxy setting.

This problem is fairly common but with many possible causes such as malware, web content filters and a bunch of other installed programs.

I tried to reset IE, but it made no difference. Arent't these Windows 7 settings that apply to every browser? I don't see how changing specific browser settings would change anything.

No those setting only relate to one browser. Other browsers have similar settings.

You don't see how turning off the proxy setting on a browser would turn off an obvious Proxy problem?

This is how is how you turn off Proxy settings unless there is something overriding the setting which in this case is obviously the problem. It's not a Windows problem, something else is in fact overriding the setting.

The link I posted shows the a number of different things can cause this problem, anything from malware to certain installed programs. In the case of malware you would need to run virus scan's.

I would hate to guess which one might apply in your case because it can be many different things causing the problem, many of which are highlighted in the link I posted earlier. I suggest you look them over and try the suggestions mentioned in the link.
