Angry Solved: Proxy Settings in IE 10
Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 8, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3317U CPU @ 1.70GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 5939 Mb
Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000, -1920 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 702573 MB, Free - 656015 MB;
Motherboard: Acer, Aspire V5-571P
Antivirus: Windows Defender, Disabled

Don't know why Windows Defender is listed as "DIsabled", it isn't. It is active and working.

My problem is with Internet Explorer 10. The"proxy" box in IE10 - Tools - IE Settings, Connections, LAN Settings keeps getting checked without any input from me. It can happen while I'm on the internet, while I'm reading the news, etc etc. There is no logical sequence of things that I do that causes the box to be checked. It just seems to happen randomly. If there is anyone out there who knows how to resolve this problem, I'd be thrilled to hear from them. This is a real pain the butt.

Other than the box being checked, are there actually proxy server settings inside?

Yes, the following info applies when the box is checked:
HTTP 127.0.01 Port 16110
Secure 127.0.0.1 Port 16110
Of course, If I uncheck the box, the settings "go away"

I don't know much about Windows 8 yet, but I'd say there's a program on your computer causing those proxy changes.

Do you have a Nanosat Free to Air FTA receiver (Nano Premium, Lite...) connected to your computer (satellite Internet?) ? Or, using isatellitelink?

It's a communication problem between Windows 8 and TSG SysInfo. No estimate on a fix date.

I am connected to the Internet by a "WiFi" modem supplied by my ISP Time Warner. Don't know anything about the program mentioned in your reply.
I've noticed that there are other people with the same problem. I've "googled" this and found other forums that have tried to fix this problem but so far none have been able to resolve this.The only thing attached to this computer is a Canon Printer but that couldn't be the cause because it happens even when the printer isn't attached. In fact, turning on the laptop this morning did not include having to uncheck the proxy box for the first time in weeks.
Any suggestions, short of re-installing Windows 8, would be welcome.
Thanks guys for taking the time to try to resolve this problem

I don't see any other reason to use port 16110. Why would that port be used in your proxy settings is beyond me.

You can still browse with it?

I have no idea if this will work on Windows 8, since the program hasn't been updated in a long time. However, if it does, it could give us the clues we need to get to the bottom of this. Worth a shot:


1- Please click HERE to download HijackThis.

2- Run the program.

3- Click on the Main Menu button if not already there.

4- Select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

5- Copy and paste the scan log from Notepad into your next reply. Do not attach it.

6- Do not "Fix" anything unless advised to do so.

Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

Type regedit

Press Enter.

Browse to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

In the right-pane, double-click ProxyServer.

Delete the value (http=127.0.0.1:16110;https=127.0.0.1:16110).

Also double-click ProxyEnable and set value to 0.


Close the registry editor and check IE10 again.


If no change, reboot the computer and check again.

Did exactly as you suggested. The "Proxy" box was not checked which is a good sign. Will let you know if it occurs again and then we can take it from there.
I really want to thank you for taking your time to help me. There aren't many cases where that happens. I've been around a long time and this is one of only a small number of times where a total stranger has taken their time to help another.

I don't see any software on your computer that could account for those proxy server settings. Besides, 127.0.0.1 is your computer.

However, malware will use that to bypass antivirus/firewall filters and redirecting to it. In this case, we're seeing port 16110. This port is never used for anything that I know of. In my opinion, your computer has been infected in the past, or still is.

If it still is, the proxy settings will likely be changed again, maybe at next reboot.

They may not return either, but I'm still puzzled about what could have changed those proxy settings.

If you wish, you can ask a malware removal specialist's advice. To do so, please click on Report and kindly ask to be moved to the Virus & Other Malware Removal forum. Be sure to provide the appropriate reports in that forum after reading THIS. From there, be patient. The malware removal experts are very busy! You should get an answer within the next 48 hours.

Another thing that would help us determine what's using that port 16110 is a program like TCPView.

It doesn't need to be installed. Only run the program's executable.

In the Local Port column, look for port 16110.

In the Process column, note the process(es) using that port 16110.

In the Remote Address column, note the remote address.


If you wish, simply click File > Save As...

Save to the desktop. This will create a text file on your desktop which you'll be able to attach to your next post.
