    Hey guys, new to the forum. Just wanted to know why my computer keeps checking the Use a proxy server for your LAN option under Internet Options>Connections>LAN settings
    By having this option clicked on every reboot, dropbox can't connect and none of the Windows 8 apps work outside of desktop apps. Any help?

    Do you have a program named e-Rewards Notify on your computer?

    Also read the following thread: http://forums.techguy.org/web-email/1088333-solved-proxy-settings-ie-10-a.html



    If not,


    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.



    Then,



    1- Run HijackThis again.

    2- Click on Open The Misc Tools section from the Main Menu.

    3- Click on Open Uninstall Manager.

    4- Click on Save list...

    5- Save the text file to the desktop.

    6- Copy and paste the log from Notepad into your next reply.

    Yup. Uninstalling e-Rewards Notify should fix your problem.

    Dang, nice and quick catch! Had that problem yourself? Haha, it's a nice piece of software, so uninstalling it will be sad XD. I'll contact e-Rewards about the problem. Thanks a lot!

    Haven't had the problem personally, but another member recently had the exact same problem and we caught it with the help of TCPView. :)
