    I'm using a dial up provider called BasicISP.com (they seem fine, and cheap)
    They provide a branded version of SlipStream, called HiSpeed.exe

    When activated, of course it acts as a proxy pointing to
    No Problem, works like a champ. Been on this package for ~45 days.

    While tackling another issue, I had occasion to wander through my proxy exception list:

    (Internet Options>Connections>Lan Settings>Advanced>Exceptions)

    And I was amazed at the long list I found.
    Dialers and XXX and advert.com, oh my! :eek:
    Full list is pasted below.

    This list comes and goes as the HiSpeed.exe is started and stopped. Of course my first thought was that BasicISP had placed this rubbish in their HiSpeed package.

    As a test I installed HiSpeed on a clean machine, started it up, and nope! None of the garbage in the exceptions list.

    I'm using Sygate firewall, NOD32 antivirus, and have scanned with Ad-Aware, Spybot and MS AntiSpyware, all of which give me a clean bill of health. WinXP SP2, clean install only about twenty days old. (sigh)

    Any thoughts?

    I'm reasonably sure I must have picked up something while surfing, but damned if I can find it. IE Security set to high now, and having used Maxthon browser (MyIE) over IE for years, Firefox is just too underdeveloped just yet.

    Thanks for any assistance-

    First off contact you ISP to make sure but at the company i work for we do not use a proxy exclusion list. so in theory you could just set it to not use one.

    RE: AdAware version is the SE version, updated prior to scanning

    RE: Contacting the ISP on a support issue - They haven't figured out configuring Dnews yet, I'm not sure I want to overly tax them.... But hey, they're cheap and they don't require proprietary software shells like earthlink or netscape (blech! aol by any other name...) require to get the use of SlipStream.

    Also worth noting, HiJack This 1.99 is not reporting on the registry string where the proxy exception is actually set. I can disable hispeed.exe then refresh my view in regedit and the settings are, of course, gone. I can also edit them directly when hispeed is running, and remove the nasties. They DO return after restarting hispeed. The string is:

    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-861567501-1957994488-725345543-1003\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride

    Last interesting item: I have installed HiSpeed.exe and surfed the net with it on four other known clean machines now. None of them are having this proxy exception issue. Frankly, it's not the end of the world, but it's a heckuva puzzle. I would really like to know what I picked up that's could do this, and how.
