I recently purchased a laptop with Windows 8.1. For some reason, the LAN Connection Settings keep defaulting to use a proxy server (IP Address 127.0.0.1).
I am not entirely sure if it happens just after booting or if it only happens when I try to open an app on the tiles screen. In my most recent scenario, I unchecked my Internet Options and "Automatically Detect Settings" was unchecked and proxy
settings were unchecked. However, I then tried to open a weather app from the tiles screen and noticed it wouldn't update. I opened Internet Options and saw that it had changed to use a proxy server instead. I have scanned my laptop for viruses
and didn't find any. I have also manually set it through registry editing if your an advanced user
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
still nothing is working. please help!
