Hi Friends

I have found this R1 line on a HijackThis Log from a customer.
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = http://localhost;

I know this is for Internet Explorers Search functions and other characteristics. But what does this line mean? Where can I find more information’s about this line?

Thank you very much

If you are connecting to the Internet via a proxy server in your internet explorer, that line causes local content to not go through the proxy server (like when you are reading an html file that is located on your pc.

It just means that any attempt to connect to "http://localhost;" does not have to go through your Proxy Server.
