How to turn off proxy server Windows 8
Hi everyone in this blog I’m explaining about turn off proxy
server Windows 8.
A proxy server is an intermediary between your computer and
the internet, often used to hide your real location and allow you to access
websites that would otherwise be blocked.
If you're having trouble connecting to the internet via
Internet Explorer, it's possible that it has been set to use a proxy server. To
change this, launch IE, click on the cog at the top-right corner and choose
Internet Options from the menu.
Then, click on the Connections tab, then the LAN settings
button. A new window will open where you can untick the 'Use a proxy server for
your LAN' option. Make sure the 'Automatically detect settings' box is checked
(as in the image above) and then click OK, then OK again.
Sometimes, after a reboot, you'll find that your settings
have been undone and they have returned to using a proxy server. This usually
indicates the presence of malware of some description, although some people
have reported that the change is made by their internet security software.
In any case, you can try several things:
Temporarily disable the firewall provided as
part of your internet security software (not all include one)
Run a scan for malware using your anti-virus or
other security software
Download Malwarebytes (free version) and check
for and remove malware
Use a different web browser, such as Firefox or
Chrome and see if it fixes your problem
