Internet Options Proxy Server setting won't stay off.

    Log in with SAFE_MODE
    goto help and find out how you log in to safe_mode with win8.1

    run -> REGEDIT

    goto (in registry)

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Microsoft -> CurrentVersion -> Internet Settings

    Change the value of 'Proxy_enable' to 0 (zero)

    DELETE the setting called 'proxy_server'

    Nowyou can close the REGEDIT

    start TaskManager

    deactivate all unfamiliar startups

    restart your computer and it schould be fine :-)

    Hello, I use Google chrome and seem to be having the same issue, but i do not have windows 8.1. I un-check the proxy settings box and randomly it'll come back on multiple times throughout the day. If someone could please help me solve this issue it would be greatly appreciated.

    I have just started having the same issue with Google Chrome. It is inconsistent, but requires my going into advanced settings>Network,>proxy server, and deselect "use a proxy server..." under LAN, every time, and some how it keep getting re selected.

    Probably caused by other software you have installed. Try doing a Clean Boot then turn of Proxy. RUn that way for awhile and see if it somes back. If not follow the instructions here to isolate the cause.
