I have a laptop that was previously eat up with spyware & it was all removed by the updated versions of malwarebytes & Avast AV. I ran these scans in safe mode & even ran Avast in boot scan mode. All the spyware was fixed/removed except for the proxy settings keep coming back...any suggestions on how to rid the laptop of this?

Scan with antivirus and antimalware apps in normal mode (not safe mode).  In safe mode many baddies are still not activated and will not be found.

i suggest to do a fresh install - it's the only sure way!
on heavily infected systems -  you're never sure that all the malware is gone

also - if you need running multiple scans - you're loosing more time than installing from fresh  - or do a factory restore

and in the future - once everything is installed - make an image of it !
