    See this thread at malwarebytes help. It's not always considered malware(in your case most likely though).

    Ah that's interesting. I used group policy to disable quite a few things, could it be part of that?

    If it is though, the thing which I don't understand is why it flags as being PUM HIJACK.

    Found in Wikipedia:

    Details[edit]

    The name is assigned by Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and is not the specific name of a unique virus or hack. The "PUM" defines a "Potentially Unwanted Modification," and the "bad.proxy" defines the modification. The ability to search for and alert a user to "Potentially Unwanted Modifications" was added to Malware Bytes in November, 2010. It is likely that the first day users began reporting PUM.bad.proxy was not the first day the hack existed, but rather the first time Malware Bytes could alert a user to the vulnerability.[2] Also, the fact that the proxy server is often not active when Malware Bytes alerts a user to its presence may indicate that it is a remnant of a virus, hack, or other malicious software that had previously been removed or quarantined
