Hi, hoping someone can help with this as i'm fresh out of ideas!
I work in a financial institution and we have in the last 6 months upgraded from IE9 to IE11. We now face a problem where randomly just after login the proxy settings are being deleted. with the problem being random there is a limited amount of troubleshooting
available but here's what i have been able to figure out.
OS: win 7
Proxy settings deployed by GPP in the correct manner
proxy settings then get stored in users roaming profile.
user logs on, profile is downloaded fine (with correct proxy settings), about 4 seconds after desktop starts loading the proxy reg values HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigProxy and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\Connections\DefaultConnectionSettings are deleted by rundll32. rundll32 process is created by explorer.exe.
that's as much as i have been able to discover!
the issue only occurs on machines that have had the IE11 upgrade installed as part of the build image. the reference image was upgraded to IE11 from IE8. the machines that have had IE9 upgraded to IE11 do not exhibit the problem.
we get 10-20 occurrences of this per week and the new build is on +-2300 machines(which is about a quarter of the estate) so it's not massive but it still generates unwanted calls to the service desk

really hope someone can help!

thankyou

I have a computer that had some seemingly easy malware to remove. Chrome extension, toolbars, etc... Scans come back clean but on every reboot or simply logging off and logging back in, the pesky proxy settings keep getting reset. Thanks for your help!

I have read at great length about this issue and am convinced my new Lenovo laptop is infected.  What I am not sure of is the scripts I read from Bleeping Computer are generic to be used for each person or if logs need to be reviewed to determine steps to take?  I have run Malwarebytes and it found 10 non malware items which I quarantined for fun and found nothing after running ADwCleaner.  I have started this topic with the obligatory DDS paste below and look forward to your help in resolving the issue.

hi,

A few days ago I've erased a user from the control panel, (I'm the only one using my pc and I had 3 different users) anyway, the point is that after doing that, now when I enter in the OS, I don't have anymore my personal configuration, however, everything is saved under the folder of the user that I have deleted.
Now, how can I create again the old user that I've deleted, with all the documents and settings which are saved in the folder of the deleted user?
I hope I made myself clear,
Thank you!

A:Please help, cycbot.b infection, firewall not working. Some strange proxy settings keep coming back

Our current Windows 8/IE10 tablets apply a group policy which sets up the IE proxy configuration and prevents users from changing that configuration.
This is done using the settings "Prevent changing proxy settings" and "Disable changing automatic configuration settings" (located at computer configuration\administrative templates\windows components\internet explorer).
With Windows 8.1/IE11, the proxy server settings are still greyed out in the LAN settings dialog box under Internet Options\Connections in the desktop IE environment.
However in 8.1 the proxy settings can also be accessed from the Settings charm: Settings - Change PC Settings - Network - Proxy.  From this location, ordinary users can modify and save changes to the proxy configuration.
Is there any way to lock this down?

A:Locking down IE proxy settings under PC Settings\Network\Proxy on Windows 8.1

Update on this - a very helpful Microsoft engineer came back with a workaround which, while not ideal, is a lot better than letting users change their proxy settings.
When I said I was going to post it here, the engineer said to make sure I started with the statement that Binary registry keys as used in this solution shouldn't generally be messed about with, and that editing the registry without first backing it up may
also lead to plagues of locusts, etc.  All the usual disclaimers, so use this at your own risk.
His solution, which we've tested, involves switching from per-user proxy settings to per-machine proxy settings.
The Microsoft workaround word for word is:
The first thing we need to do is to export the following registry key from a machine that has the correct proxy settings set.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections
This contains the following 2 binary registry keys which have the connections settings: ?DefaultConnectionSettings? and ?SavedLegacySettings?
The next step is to open the newly exported .reg file and to change the path:
From: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections
To: HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections
For a test on a single machine you can manually change this, from elevated cmd: regedit <file>.reg
For a bigger scale you can create a script to deploy the... Read more

I have been struggling with a malware changing my proxy settings to http://wpad.com.gr/proxy.pac.

This affects my system proxy settings in PC Settings - Networ - Proxy - Use Automatic Configuration Script (ON) - Acript Address http://wpad.com.gr/proxy.pac.

I have used TDSKill and it deleted a file "router.exe" from my windows folder. And Adware Cleaner removed some registry entries alongside some folder in Chrome that has something like "\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\https_static.olark.com"

Then after resetting my settings and manually turning off Automatic Configuration Script in PC Settings, everything was fine and my google searches were back to 2015. A day later it changed, I scanned with Adware cleaner and it found same stuffs, I cleaned, And it;s back again.

There is a software which often changes the proxy settings so I decided to config the internet settings registry right to reject the proxy settings. But When I decided to delete this software and return the rights back, I suddenly found that I can not change
the proxy settings manually!
The detail is that I change the auto proxy url, to let my pc use a pac file and I don't want any softwares to change. However, when I decided to give the rights back and try to change the url back, it never success, and even the same when i'm sure I have
cleared this url in the whole registry, but it back, as it never changes!
I check the registry rights twice or more to make sure that the rights has given back, just like it originally should be. But it never works.
So the result is I have to clear and reinstall the WINDOWS 10 AGAIN!
Never should you save such information both in registry and somewhere I don't know! Or you should let these stuffs out of the ** registry!

I appear to be the victim of some piece of malware or virus that has added a proxy server setting that I am unable to get rid of. The main symptoms are that I am unable to change my proxy server settings in Windows 10. It appears to use this setting http=127.0.0.1:8080;. The result of this is that I am unable to do searches in the omnibar of Google Chrome (just takes me to a blank page) and I can't visit certain webpages, also if I am able to do a Google search the "Search Tools" button is missing.

I looked around on the internet and have tried a few fixes, I've deleted or changed the registry entries mentioned in Philip Turner's reply here: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/446898-can-t-disable-proxy-in-ie10?page=1

I also changed the entry mentioned here: https://fixedit.itxpress.biz/2014/10/08/unable-to-disable-windows-proxy-setting/

Making these changes allowed me to change the proxy server settings and once I change "Automatically detect settings" to on and "Use a a proxy server" to off then the issue is fixed and everything behaves normally.

The problem is, once I restart my computer the settings revert back and are again unable to be changed unless I delete/change all the above registry entries again. I'm pretty sure that whatever did this is still on my computer somewhere and I need some help finding and eliminating it. Either that, or there is still some hidden registry entry that I am unable to find.

I have a Dell L502 laptop, Win7/64.  As soon as Combofix is finished downloading it is deleted.  If I copy it from an email (sent from my wife's machine), it is also deleted as soon as the attachment finishes downloading.  I can download it from the email attachment as a zip file, but as soon as it is extracted it is deleted.  I have a copy in CD but my computer will not allow me to copy it to C:\ComboFix folder.

I ran Malwarebytes (Free Trial) and Spybot; Safe mode and normal.  Both did not find anything, but there were times where they appeared to "hang/get stuck".
Malwarebytes quit before finishing on the 2nd run.

I ran ComboFix in both Safe Mode and Normal from the CD, total time about 14 mins.  It spent about 1-2 minutes at each of Stage 2, 3, 4, 5 and 32.  Nothing in the Quarantine file appears to be of any significance.
From what I found from online research, this sounds like a nasty one.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Firstly, run a scan with Malwarebytes Antimalware (the Free version is fine, you don't need to activate the Pro trial). Scan with it, delete whatever it finds, reboot and post the log here. Download it from here:

Secondly, run a scan with AdwCleaner. Same as above, scan with it, delete what it finds, post the log file here. Download from here:

Thirdly, run a scan with HiJackThis. Run it as Admin, pick the "scan and generate log" option, and then post the logfile here. Do NOT remove ANYTHING unless told to do so, as removing the wrong entry can damage your system. Download it from here:

Ok, wow this is gonna suck to explain, but bare with me. Ok, now I go to www.soundclick.com alot, and you have to stream songs to listen, now it used to work, but then I installed A-Squared Guard, and Outpost Firewall.

And I didn't stream for awhile, and I tried to stream and it's all messed up, I get an error message that says "the server is not responding" I e-mailed their support, and they said it would be a problem on my computer.

I clicked the message from Windows Media Player, that said "More Information" and it said I might have a problem with my proxy settings, did the firewall mess it up? Or it said "I might not be connected to the internet" i'm using 56k dial up, and i'm clearly connected or I wouldn't be able to post this..

receiving a proxy error, sounds like your firewall is the issue.

Computer is running windows 2000 and was previously on a domain and proxy settings were set. When the computer was removed from the old domain and added to a new one with different proxy settings, the new proxy settings will only stay for a couple of days and will go back to the settings of the previous domain. When a user tries to set the new proxy settings and presses ok when they go back and double check, the old settings are still there. An administrator has to log in and change the settings so they can stay for another couple of days.
Note: we have been in 3 different locations with different domains, and it still goes back to the original settings.

Ok on my network i have a proxy server in place and also have a wireless lan that uses the proxy, But the problem that i have is that some of the staff take the laptops home with them to do work on and when they come back to work the work that has been done at hom should sync with the server, now the problem that i have is that when a laptop is took home the staff are unable to use the internet as the proxy setting are still in place. I am not willing to allow any member of staff access to change these settings as the way i see it is, the more they know the more problems they could cause.

Is there anyway around this without having to setup a local account on each laptop? or is there any software that could do this?

Thanx

A:IE Proxy settings

You could check the proxy settings for IE under Internet Options\Connections\Lan Settings. If you don't have a proxy server that you use, uncheck the "Use proxy server for your LAN..." checkbox. You can also uncheck all of the checkboxes that either auto detect the proxy, or use automatic configuration script; these would speed up starting up IE, since it doesn't have to look for the proxy server.

Hi there.

I am looking for a small program or command that I can use which will tell me what proxy settings are currently applied for my internet connection..

The reason I ask is because we run pac script configurtaion, followed by proxy settings (also set in the internet settings). and my PC can also access the internet with out a proxy.. Hence, troubleshooting exactly which settings my browser is currently using can be difficuilt..

Any sugestions?

Hi all, My sisters laptop was absolutely full of adware/spyware trojans, you name it. Some application called winservice86 kept re-installing itself and her browser was essentially useless due to some nasty proxy redirect (127.0.0.1:50758). I noticed also that in the LAN connections tab there was a notice saying that "some services are managed by your system administrator. I'm used to seeing this on domain machines which get their proxy settings through GPO but this machine is not a member of any domain. To make matters worse, I'm in Ireland but she is in Scotland!! I managed to sort out most of the  problems (I think) using a combination of Malwarebytes/ADWCleaner and HitmanPro but the proxy issue persists. I have looked for threads on BleepingComputer to see if I could resolve it but the solutions seem to be specific to the individual users/pcs. So I'm opening this thread in the hope that someone can help me. I'd greatly appreciate any assistance that anyone can give me.  Here is the FRST log, I'll also attach the additon.txt and the Mbam log from when it was really dirty if that helps.   Scan result of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) (x86) Version: 28-01-2015 01Ran by Lorraine (administrator) on LORRAINE-PC on 28-01-2015 20:23:14Running from C:\Users\Lorraine\DesktopLoaded Profiles: Lorraine (Available profiles: Lorraine)Platform: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional  Service Pack 1 (X86) OS Language: English (United States)In...

Hello,

My computer is setup to use a 120gb SSD for my OS (Windows 7 ultimate 64bit) and a 2Tb hard drive for my program files, user folders etc. I use junction points to link the program files and user files from C:\ to D:\. This normally works like a charm however I recently updated iTunes and it deleted my C:\Program Files (x86) junction point and created a Program Files (x86) folder on the C:\ drive, this completely roots my system as all my Program Files (x86) are stored on my D:\ drive and now my computer can't find them since the junction point has been deleted. How can it do this and most importantly any reason as to why it's doing this? It's an easy fix on my end as all I have to do is put back in my windows installation disk boot from it and remake the junction point but it's a real pain to do it when it shouldn't happen in the first place.

Also after remaking the Junction point I decided to uninstall iTunes and it once again deleted my junction point while uninstalling.

(Note: My Program Files, and User, junction points have worked as normal and have not been deleted just my Program Files (x86) junction point. I am creating my junction points using the command mklink "C:\Program Files (x86)" "D:\Program Files (x86)" /J)

Does anyone have any ideas to why this is happening? Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

Nairda.

Hi, all,

I'm posting this for a friend. He has a computer that had been working fine at his apartment for eight months, using a cable connection. One day, he was not able to connect to the internet. He has both IE and FF and mostly uses FF. The error he would get is that the proxy would not allow connections (I apologize, I cannot remember the exact message). He did not do anything about this at the time because he was getting ready to move to his mother's house to help her out. He set up a splitter on her cable, and when he hooked up his computer, he was still getting the same message, even though it was a completely different company and place.

I had him go into the FF settings (Tools > options > Advanced > Network > connection settings). His initial setting was to "use system proxy settings." I asked him to change it to "auto-detect proxy settings for this network," but that still gave the same message. I had him change it to "no proxy" and now he can get on the internet, browse, get email, etc.

However, each time he turns off his computer, or it goes to sleep/hibernates, the setting changes back to the original one to "use system proxy settings." He will change it back to "no proxy" and then can connect fine, but doing that each time is a bit of a pain.

A:Proxy settings problem

To avoid trouble I advise to always set to "no proxy" rather than to "detect proxy" unless the person is actually using a proxy.

If the setting keeps reverting most likely there is malware or else an anti-spyware application is deciding that the setting should not be changed and reverting it on shut down or start up.

Dear All,

I hope you can help:

I am on Windows Xp, and my desktop computer has not stopped allowing me to access the internet so i tired many things i..e checking the cable, the port in my room, yet to no avail, so then i checked software i.e. internet explorer settings etc, yet once again to no avail. I then resorted to formatting my computer yet once it all reinstalled, still the same problem. What happens is that everytime i open internet explorer i get the message 'page cannot be displayed' and before it displays this, in the bottom left, on the internet explorer window it says 'detecting proxy settings'. So i attempted to investigate by using the ping commands in command prompt, yet it pings back but there is nothing in the dns part(therefore no connection?)

I have tried and tried yet still nothing, i used winsock, but no success, and so im thinking whether it is the network card itself as no light appears on the back anymroe when i connect my cable from the internet port to the port in the desktop...what do you think?

Many thanks in advance,

Amzy

Low and behold, NOTHING I do can remove the proxy settings on the laptop and therefore cannot get this thing working. I cannot access the internet and I've done a scan with Malwarebytes, and cleaned it up but still can't do anything about it.

Multiple times as day something keeps turning on my LAN Proxy settings. I keep turning it off and randomly it just comes back on. I have been searching how to solve this issue and came up empty handed. Someone please help.

Hi,
I have a Windows 7 Professional Dell Laptop. This is an official laptop given by my organisation. When we work in the office LAN, certain proxy settings need to be used to access the network and the same limits the use of certain websites as per company policy. However, when Iam at home, I disable the same and access through my home internet. This has been going on smoothly for close to 2 years now.
From today, I find that as soon as I disable proxy settings and come out, the same is not disabled. When I go back and check immediately, proxy setting is still showing as enabled. I restarted but the same didn't fix it. I googled and found a few links with the same topic in ur website but wasn't sure of following the solution before taking ur advice. Please suggest.

Thanks & Regards.

You should first take this up with your IT department. Your permissions may have been changed for a reason, and any advice given here at BC may cause problems with what your CIO wants to happen.

What should I do when windows could not automatically detect this network proxy settings.

A:Windows proxy settings

I would first try a System Restore to a point where you know it worked. See here ... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/windows-8-system-restore-guide/ .

If that doesn't do it, go to this MS site ...

After Interent Explorer has been used a few times and then closed and reopened it says detecting proxy settings in the bottom right hand corner. And you can't change websites, however long you leave it, it will not go away. You end up having to restart and it will be ok. I download IE 8 trying to solve the problem but it does the same, Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

A:IE 7 and 8 says ' Detecting Proxy settings'

Might be some type of malware. Try this program.
More information about the type of internet connection would help.
32 bit Vista SP1?
Hope this helps.

I'm trying to configure a Windows 7 computer to set the default proxy settings by machine and not by user. I've managed to find the policy in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings] "ProxySettingsPerUser" and when I set that to 0 it gives me the effect I want and doesn't force me to edit the settings for each user.

Similar to the problem this guy: ProxySettingsPerUser had. The proxy settings are now supposedly given from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE area but after hours spent googling and trying to edit the proxy settings none of my attempts seemed to change it at all.

Does anyone know where the computer searches for proxy settings when ProxySettingsPerUser is set to 0? I read that on XP it was the same place but in HKLM not HKCU but this does not seem to work in Windows 7. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks,

A:Proxy Settings By Machine?

I just noticed that similarly to the person in the post above it will update if you run IE as administrator. Running safari or chrome in admin does not update the proxy settings although they will also update when IE is ran. Still clueless on how to force the update to take effect.

Hi, and thanks for you time and help in advance

I have a Windows 8.1 laptop whose proxy settings keep reverting back to 127.0.0.1:49245 no matter how many times i changed it. I'm not even sure what triggers it, I turn the proxy off, browse a few minutes and suddenly the proxy's changed again. I haven't tried many things, only running FRST64 with the fixlist i found here www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/548709/cannot-remove-proxy-settings-1270015050/. That fixlist fixed the other CCSwells problems so I tried it. My laptop runs a little faster now, but the proxy setting still keeps changing to 127.0.0.1:49245.

Here's the fixlog from that fix:

This morning I found myself unable to access any https sites. I tracked the problem down to the fact that somehow my network settings had been changed to connect via a proxy. Once I deselected this option, I was able to connect again without any problems. I have been advised by the technical support desk at my ISP that this is often caused by malware, and that it means that the offenders can potentially skim important log-in information. I have done a series of scans, but I am unable to tell if the results show anything significant or not.

I have run full scans using Malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials, Hitman Pro and ADWCleaner.

Malwarebytes reported no malware but one PUP - PUP.Optional.Spigot

Microsoft Security Essentials and Hitman Pro reported no threats.

The ADWCleaner log is posted below.

Is anyone able to tell me if I am likely to have been compromised in any way, and if there is any further action I should take?

I run Windows 7 64 Home Premium. My security setup is Malwarebytes Home Premium, Microsoft Security Essentials, Hitman Pro (paid version), Windows Firewall.

A:Proxy settings changed, not by me

HI all,
Having just spent several hours trying to prevent the LAN proxy server being set by some nefarious program I thought I should record the solution and the culprit. The OS is Windows 7.

The culprit was connected to an IE toolbar called easyfundraising toolbar.

It had been disabled **and did not appear in the (add)remove programs list, yet it was still able to enable and change the LAN proxy settings on every boot and sometimes after a few minutes.

This setting prevented the Mcafee technical support connecting remotely to the computer according to computer user. I've no idea if this was a legitimate tech support arrangement.

After multiple scans by numerous anti virus and specialist security software in safe mode and in normal boot.
After using ccleaner and msconfig to selectively prevent many start-up programs.
After following advice on tech websites including this one and at Microsoft regarding this LAN proxy being set problem.

I closely looked again at IE's list of Add Ons all of which had been previously disabled.
This was listed:
TBSB03575 Class

It was disabled which led me to believe that it was inactive but some program connected with it (judging by the solution) was setting and resetting the LAN proxy.

Clicking 'more information' in IE 'manage add-ons' dialogue revealed this:

What does this mean? I have been trying to download an update

error - You have not specified a user name for your proxy." I
have tried every user name I can think of and clicked all the
buttons. I have queried Norton numerous times and keep getting
answers that do not answer the question. I don't know what
proxy settings are - in my 20 years of computer use I have never
had this thrown at me before. Perhaps it is a stupid question, but

My service provider is Earthlink.

IE internet options proxy settings won't save. every time i connect to the internet i cannot obtain web pages (according to phone earthlink rep he said to uncheck the proxy settings.) It worked, but Windows or IE won't save the settings and i have to uncheck them every time i connect. i have to uncheck them for connections that aren't even in use also. i don't necessarily have to connect and disconnect either; they have changed while being connected also. the LAN proxy settings change only once though for only one connection.

This is the settings: IE, Tools, IE options, click one of the dial up connections, click settings to the right, uncheck proxy server boxes 1 and 2, click ok. that you have to do for all connections. the "one time only" is for the LAN settings. Click LAN settings, uncheck proxy boxes 1 and 2. by the way, it also changes the setting i pick for "always dial default connection". it changes it to "Dial whenever network connection is not present".

Win, IE, Earthlink glitch? Or does anyone know how to solve this issue?

thanks

A friend of mine brought a laptop for me to fix...I just cannot seem to correct this problem. Apparently one of his children tried to download a game but it messed up his internet connection and cannot connect to the internet using iexplorer or google chrome.

I ran malwarebytes and it threw up a bunch of stuff which I removed, the malwarebytes scan now shows no issues but a problem is still there.

It seems that something has changed his LAN settings on his computer. When I try to alter them and check OK they just revert back to using a proxy with no internet connection available.

I have since downloaded firefox from another computer, installed it on the infected one but that did not work also, I then went into the settings in firefox, changed the proxy setting and all is OK with this browser but every time I try to change the proxy settings in iexplorer it just re checks itself after I click OK. Something is changing this computer settings.

"noknojon" posted yesterday with what seems to be the same problem and explained it a lot better than me

May I request a bit of assistance from anyone please.

Information:

laptop - Asus X series
OS - win 8.1

Hey, Succuba

DNS settings:Start - Control Panel - Network and sharing center- Change adapter settings - choose your active adapter - Right click - Properties - Choose Internet protocol version 4Settings should be "Obtain DNS server address automatically" if not specified otherwise by your ISP.Repeat for Internet protocol version 6 if there is any installed.

If that Does not work try this

Install different browser than IE. If the connection works there, try reinstalling Internet Explorer

Hi there,

I'm having a problem where my proxy settings keeps changing it self. Where i'm currently working my laptop is connected to the internet to a server which i connect through a certain proxy.

As of 2 days ago i opened up internet explorer and chrome and it come up saying i need to connect to proxy ......... etc. I then go into my lan connections and change the proxy to what is required and the internet works perfectly for about 5 to 10 minutes upon which the proxy then changes back. I change to the required proxy and it works and again changes back after 5 to 10 minutes.

The proxy it keeps changing to is 127.0.0.1 port 57374.

I have run a full system virus scan using MCAFEE and it came back clean and a full system scan using Microsoft Malicious software removal tool and it also came back clean. I have also reset my internet option back to default and it has not helped the issue. I'm now at a loss as to what it could be.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, if you require any more information please ask.

Cheers
Matt

I wonder if someone would be so kind as to offer me some guidance. Something is changing my internet proxy settings - every time I restart Firefox (or IE) - the proxy settings have been changed to port 61919- and I have to change them back to "no proxy" to get a connection. This is irritating - but I'm also a bit worried that summat untoward is going on!

I will paste all the log files requested below and attach the attach.txt file as requested in the notes to this thread.

many thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone can make.

I have run malwarebytes - which hasn't solved the problem - and also Spybot - which doesn't pick anything up.

My IE Internet Options are checked with my company proxies. However, when I next boot up, they are cleared. This happens Every day, Every boot or reboot.

Using wired connection and also occurs with wired VPN connection from home. Have tested with wireless and same results.

Something in the Start Up or Norton or LAN connection and initialization is wiping these items out. Is there some network or security setting that says to use manual configuration as a default?

I have been able to get to IE Internet properties very early in the boot process (in stand alone not network connection) I have seen them still checked but they will be wiped out after I close and reopen the Internet Properties.

First of all I dont understand the who is setting up this proxy server. If a web host is setting up proxy server, then how can I change it by changing settings on my browser ?

If this proxy seting is for my desktop, then I dont have any proxy server set on my desktop. So whats the point in setting proxy ?

How to disable automatic proxy caching in Internet Explorer

You can disable the Automatic Proxy Result Cache by using the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

Value: EnableAutoproxyResultCache
Type: REG_DWORD
Data value: 0 = disable caching; 1 (or key not present) = enable automatic proxy caching (this is the default behavior)
If the registry key is not present, you can create the registry key by using the following registry file:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]"EnableAutoProxyResultCache"=dword:00000000"
