When the IE proxy was set, the whole system will try to follow the same proxy. The problem is that I do not want any application to follow (such as google chrome, and all the rest). I know there is custom setting in each application such that the application does not use IE's proxy but this is no what I want.

Sadly, you cannot restrict other applications to not use IIS Proxy.  The proxy setting is not actually part of Internet Explorer, although you can access the settings from IE.  You'll find that the proxy settings are also part of your control panel (Internet Options), so any application can read the relevant registry keys and then make use of the settings.

Applications that use the Proxy Server don't "identify" themselves, so you couldn't even configure the proxy server to only allow certain applications either.
