Proxy Bypass on Internet settings

What is the purpose of a sofware program trying to change the Proxy Bypass on Internet settings? Is it malicious?

We need a lot more information like what malware app are you running, whats the name of the app, what does it try to change the settings to, etc, etc.

I would start by downloading Malwarebytes and running it.

The sofware concerned is the giveaway of the day Giveaway of the Day - free licensed software daily. OneClick Professional 12 - WinCleaner One Click will fix Windows errors and speed up your slow computer. WinCleaner is the right choice to maintain your PC, Laptop and Netbook.

Outpost security suite is the software that's flagging it up.

I am totally unfamiliar with Outpost but I can see no reason it is trying to change proxy settings. I would again suggest you run Malwarebytes.
