Proxy problem: http=127.0.0.1:8080;https=127.0.0.1:8080

Recommended Posts

Hi, for a few weeks now i have been having problems connecting to the internet. The error message referred me to proxy settings were I found out that my pc was always trying to connect via a proxy but when I disabled this and enabled the automatic option, upon leaving that window, my changes were not saved.

First I got by by restoring my system, but after a recent windows update all my restore points were useless (my pc was restored to the issue still present). I tried other options like eliminating the proxy files from the registry, and others advised by Microsoft Help. But nothing worked. 

Luckyly I stumbled upon this forum were I saw that others had the same issue, but they had different solutions, so I will be grateful if you can help me as well.

Please find attached my FRST and Addition

Thanks in advanced!

Hello @tutiz and :welcome:

 

Please run the following steps and post back the logs as an attachment when ready.

STEP 01

  • If you're already running Malwarebytes 3 then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • If you don't have Malwarebytes 3 installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • Once the scan is completed click on the Export Summary button and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find, and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If Malwarebytes won't run then please skip to the next step and let me know on your next reply.

STEP 02

Please download AdwCleaner by Malwarebytes and save the file to your Desktop.

  • Right-click on the program and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Accept the Terms of use.
  • Wait until the database is updated.
  • Click Scan.
  • When finished, please click Clean.
  • Your PC should reboot now if any items were found.
  • After reboot, a log file will be opened. Copy its content into your next reply.

 

RESTART THE COMPUTER Before running Step 3

STEP 03
Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've, run the tool before you need to place a check mark here.
  • Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well.

 

Thanks

Ron

Thank you Ron for your answer. I followed all 3 Steps and I am attaching the files.

Just in case, on Step 1 I only saved the txt, I didn't quarantine the results. And on Step 2, even though two ítems were found, the PC didn't reboot, I did (I waited a few minutes but the .txt had already popped up)

Please let me know what can I do next as the issue is still present.

Thanks again!!

Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

fixlist.txt

Thanks

Ron

No we're probably not done. Those should not have come back. Yes, please quarantine. Then reboot. Then rescan again and post back a NEW Threat Scan log

There you go. Yes, looks good.

At this time there are no more signs of an infection on your system.
However if you are still seeing any signs of an infection please let me know.

Let's go ahead and remove the tools and logs we've used during this process.

Most of the tools used are potentially dangerous to use unsupervised or if ran at the wrong time.
They are often updated daily so if you went to use them again in the future they would be outdated anyways.

The following procedures will implement some cleanup procedures to remove these tools.
 
bwebb7v.jpgDownload Delfix from here and save it to your desktop. (you may already have this)

  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is checked.
  • Click the Run button.
  • Reboot


If there are any other leftover Folders, Files, Logs then you can delete them on your own.
Any other programs or logs that are still remaining, you can manually delete. (right click.....Delete)
IE: C:\FRST folder, FRST -OlderVersion folder, MBAR folder, etc....AdwCleaner > just run the program and click uninstall.

A lot of reading here but if you take the time to read a bit of it you'll see why/how infections and general damage are so easily inflicted on the computer. There is also advice on how to prevent it and keep the system working well. Don't forget about good, solid backups of your data to an external drive that is not connected except when backing up your data. If you leave a backup drive connected and you do get infected it can easily damage, encrypt, delete, or corrupt your backups as well and then you'd lose all data.
Nothing is 100% bulletproof but with a little bit of education, you can certainly swing things in your favor.


If you're not currently using Malwarebytes Premium then you may want to consider purchasing the product which can also help greatly reduce the risk of a future infection.

 

Thank you and take care

Ron
