Proxy server address will always reset after a reboot.

The proxy server would always get reset to (127.1.1.1) port 8003 in IE and if you manually set it back to no proxy and delete the line item out on a restart it will automatically re-enable itself. We do not use a proxy server and this address is not a valid one. I did read online about it: (http://deletemalware.blogspot.com/2014/12/remove-proxy-settings-127001-hijack.html)

followed the steps but after a reboot it will always come back.

Thoughts>?

Potentially your system is either infected with proxy being set to an internal infected process through which traffic is Rother captured or is part of an installed anti-virus/internet security application whose purpose is to validate the stream of data being retrieve does not include compromising worms, virus, malware, etc.

You have to identify what is making changes.
Check your services, msconfig to make sure nothing there is setting it.
Create a new user account on your system, standard, login with that account to see whether this proxy us being set
The issue might be isolated to your specific login account.

Check your name servers...

You could in an elevated command window
Run netstat -anb
What you are looking for is which process is using the 8003 port and then work your way..

Microsoft's sysinternals.con has a process explorer and monitor that might help you identify the process running on your system that is bound to that in an effort to identify..
