    Nevermind my issue was not resolved. Thanks so much for posting this. Looks like I have the same task in my Task Scheduler.
    Seriously? and the certs as well?

    Yep, and the same ini file. I deleted everything. Crazy how this went undetected

    ...Oh I almost forgot. To get rid of it, just delete the task, the .ini file, all the "DO_NOT_TRUST" certificates and revert the registry changes made. Ensure that there is not any proxy set.
    Can you give us the details please? the path to the ini file, the path to the registry changes, etc?

    Wow. What AV do you use? @moraleja39 is using ESET.

    No problem, I am glad I could help. If you need it I can write with greater detail what I did to remove it.

    Windows Defender. I did a full scan with ESET and Comodo also. That's crazy nothing picked this up.

    That would be great. I deleted the task and ini file but not sure what registry changes to fix

    I am thinking this needs to be reported to the AVs.

    Here are all the things I had to wipe:

    • The scheduled task. Its name was "Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Update". You can open the task scheduler writing taskschd.msc on the start menu search bar and hitting enter.
    • A file named "settings.ini" located on %APPDATA%\Adobe Acrobat Pro DC". Full path could be "C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe Acrobat Pro DC\settings.ini".
    • In my case, two fake certificates. Open the certificate manager writing certmgr.msc on the start menu and hitting enter. The certificates are named "DO_NOT_TRUST_FiddlerRoot" and are under the folder "trusted root CAs" (or however it is in English)
    • Registry changes used to force proxy usage. In my case, I totally deleted the following values:
      • HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL
      • HKCU\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL
      • HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\EnableAutoProxyResultCache

    • Just in case it is still enabled, disable the proxy. Go to control panel, internet settings, connections, LAN settings, and disable all checkboxes.


    I also will attach the removed INI and certificate files, just in case they could be of use to anybody reading this, as they are not dangerous per se.

    Yeah, I think that too. Any idea on how to do that?
