How to Solve Problems on Proxy Server Setting?

Please first see a user’s experience –

“Every other day for the past 3 days, after starting my computer and trying to access the Internet, I get the following message:
  • The proxy server isn't responding 
  • Check your proxy settings
  • From the Settings charm, Go to Change PC settings > Network > Proxy. 
  • Make sure your firewall settings aren’t blocking your web access. 
  • Ask your system administrator for help.” 

What’ Wrong with Your Computer? How to Solve it?

If you encounter this issue, your computer settings (proxy settings) might be maliciously distorted by some malware. You should go in and turn off the proxy button. And then delete proxy settings registry and enable your default one. Here are the steps.

Step 1: Open Internet Explorer, click on Tools, and then navigate to Internet Options;
Step 2: Click on the Connections tab in the Internet Options and then click on the LAN settings button;
Step 3: Uncheck the check box labeled “Use a proxy server for your LAN” under the Proxy Server section and press OK.

If you try this but fail because it comes back soon, you should reboot your computer to safe mode and modify and delete registry entries first.

Step 1: please restart your computer and before Windows interface loads, hit F8 key repeatedly. Choose “Safe Mode (with Networking)” option, and then press Enter key. System will load files and then get to the desktop in needed option.

Step 2: Open Registry Editor by pressing Windows+R keys, type regedit in Run box and click “OK” to proceed. When Registry Editor is open, search and get rid of all the malicious registry entries:


Path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Internet Settings\

Find out ProxyEnable and change the value data into 0

And then delete ProxyServer

Step 3: Search msconfig from Start Menu search bar, hit enter to go to System Configuration, and then navigate to Startup. Disable all the suspected startup items.

You might think of reset your browser settings if needed.
