Proxying issue with Windows Update on Vista
Posted on 2009-04-10
I recently got hit with a virus which, among other things, tried to redirect my broweser and such to a local proxy address. The virus was easy enough to eliminate as well as reset my browsers settings including shutting off the proxying redirect. However, Windows Update continually errors out now. In reviewing its logs, I am seeing the following error:
SendRequest failed with hr = 80072efd. Proxy List used: <http=localhost:7171>
Thus, even though IE is no longer being improperly redirected, Windows Update is and, for the life of me, I cannot find where that particular setting is that WU is reading that proxy address from. I have done a full registry scan and come up empty handed. Please advise.
