WinHttpAutoProxySvc on Windows 2003 SP2 servers
Posted on 2010-08-19
In our domain, all of our 2003 SP2 servers are getting cluttered with system events related to WinHttpAutoProxySvc (Events: 7035, 7036, 12503, 12517). The service is set to MANUAL on all of the servers. We're not sure what "action/event" is causing the service to start and stop.
We are not utilizing any Proxy Servers in our environment. With that being said:
1) Can we safely disable this service on our 2003 SP2 servers?
2) Can we change the logging level so we don't get these useless events in the event viewer?
Any info. or suggestions about WinHttpAutoProxySvc is appriciated. Thanks
