    Unable to Disable "use a proxy server for your LAN"wnd8.1


    This is a gaming problem but I do not know if its just a bug in the game or a problem with Windows 8.1, I want to get planetside 2 to work but when i'm on the launcher screen, I receive this error key: 11001and a long list of information. The internet is telling me I need to deactivate the "use a proxy server for your LAN" button in my internet options. I have tried this many times but it always reactivates to what it was before it the second I click ok. I have tried multiple "repairs" I have found all other the internet and all have the same result....failure. I know this may not be a particularly serious problem but it is really getting very frustrating and annoying. thank you to anyone who responds to this problem.
