Hello people, I am facing issues from a month in my system. It currently operating on windows 10. Under network and internet services the proxy server is getting turned on again and again on its own. The proxy server which it is using is =127. 0. 1:8080;=127. 1:8080. Due to this I am not able to open many websites. I need to go to the settings in every 5 mins and disable it and then only I am able to open websites. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry sir, first of all I have windows 10 so there is no control panel. The workaround which you have suggested, I am already doing that in every 5 minutes. The thing is proxy server checkbox is getting checked automatically in every 5 minutes, I dont want to go to setup in every 5 mins to do so.
Proxy server settings that continually override the system settings is normally attributed to a system virus. You should perform a virus scan on your system, ensuring your antivirus software has the latest signatures installed.

Do you have a security camera in your system?
what does security camera has to do with proxy settings?
You could just have answered the question. I suspect a port in your own home network being the cause of your problem. Some hackers take control over such devices to use them as bots in DDOS attacks.
Just go into Control Panel>Internet Options>Connetions tab>LAN button and untick the Proxy box.
If you right click your start square, Control Panel shows up in the right hand column as it always has. Early versions of Windows 10 made it harder to find but in the end, common sense prevailed and they brought it back, albeit a little difficult to find.
Nothing to do with a virus or an attack. It’s really bad source code in Windows and especially in software that says it is w10 compatible. I believe I have chased this down in my case to Sphinx W10 Firewall, although I’m not letting malware Bytes or W10 off the hook either but it does turn back on 3 or 4 times a day.
Of course Windows 10 has a Contrl Panel. They hid it in early versions but letterly, if you right click the Windows start square, it’s in the menu where it’s been for years.
You can also press the Windows key annd R together and type
into the Run box and press enter.

Disable Proxy Server

Disable Proxy Server

Temporarily Disable Proxy Service or Web
Some proxy servers use special
filtering and security features that can block encrypted or
encapsulated data transmissions (especially those protecting passwords)
such as used by the MLS (and some banking and private websites). This can cause error messages such as “Remote Server does not
exist” or “RPC Server is unavailable. Therefore, accelerators,
optimizers and/or proxy servers (along with their associated automatic
configurations) may need to be temporarily disabled or removed to allow
secure transmission of MLS information that is password protected.
To temporarily disable
connecting to the Internet through a Proxy Service:
to Start > Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections
the appropriate Internet Service as follows:
using a Dial-up Internet service, click Settings
using a broadband (non-dialup) Internet service (such as DSL or cable),
click LAN Settings button
all boxes under Automatic Configuration
the box under Proxy Server
Note: EarthLink
Satellite uses a Proxy Service. This is described in the related
article, “Proxy Settings for Earthlink Satellite powered by
DiRECTWAY”. Follow the screens on Earthlink’s website but UN-check
instead of check the Proxy Server after pressing the LAN Settings button section
on the Connections tab.
Web Accelerators typically display a small icon in the system
tray at the bottom of Windows screen. Either right-click or double-click on
this icon. If your accelerator can be configured, select “don’t
accelerate this website” and enter (or as
instructed by the accelerator vendor). To configure Google’s web accelerator
see the related
article “Stop Google web accelerator. ” Otherwise,
select Stop, Disable or Exit.
Satellite Web Accelerators: The WildBlue “Optimizer” is a web accelerator
program for satellite Internet systems that sets your computer to go
through a WildBlue proxy server to the Internet. Like Google’s
Web Accelerator, WildBlue’s Optimzer uses compression and prefetching on dedicated servers on
the Internet to try to accelerate loading web pages for faster viewing.
We could not find directions on how to temporarily disable the WildBlue
(WB) optimizer. (Users can directly contact WildBlue/NRTC tech support by
phone at 1-866-945-3258. ) To temporarily stop your Internet Explorer from automatically
connecting to the WB proxy server, you might try going to Start >
Control Panel > Internet Options > Connection
tab > LAN Settings button > Un-check
all settings (under both Automatic Configuration and under Proxy
Server). Otherwise, numerous satellite system users have
reported on the Internet that they fixed satellite connection problems to
websites using encrypted data (such as used by CTI Navigator) by un-installing
the WB Optimizer. To uninstall the WB Optimizer: click Start >
Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > select WB
Optimizer > click the Remove button > close the Control Panel.
As an alternative to removing an Internet accelerator, if you have not
already done so, you can install
the CTI Navigator program and data from recent MLS installation CDs,
and then update CTI Navigator over the Internet. Routine updates do not
require MLS data to be encrypted (because they do not contain your
password) and therefore usually will pass through accelerators and
proxy servers. Although all the main search functions would work with local
MLS data that you update, you would still need the Windows DCOM Tunneling function to work over your Internet connection to be able
to add or revise listings, send photos, or add CTI Matchmakers to our
