Proxy settings that won't go away...
Posted on 2014-04-27
One of the kids laptops is overrun with popups & redirects.
I have tried all the malware, spyware, virus, rootkit, etc., software I can think of & it won't go away.
Internet explorer will not work.
If I go to internet options>Connections>LAN settings, Proxy Server is checked. I can change to automatically detect settings, close, open back up & it's checked once again.
When trying to get on Internet, I get an error message that names the settings, 127.0.0.1:13828 & if I search the registry, I find about 5 instances of that.
Can I just delete all the keys that reference that?
Probably not the most conventional fix, but it seems that it would work...
