    Look in Control Panel, Internet Options, Connections tab, LAN Settings button at bottom. There usually should be only the first item about Automatically detect... checked, if anything below has checkmarks could be you have been infected. However, some services do use proxy settings but I don't see that in my area.

    Sounds like you have picked up some Malware.
