    "use a proxy server" doesn't save


    Hi folks,

    I've been having issues lately with the "Use a proxy server" setting. Initially whenever I would set the slider to "off" and close settings, it wouldn't save. I found that the issue had to do with the UAC being enabled. After I disabled UAC, the setting could be preserved temporarily, i.e., it would revert to "on" after restarting. It's causing serious network slowdowns and I'm at my wits end with Windows. I'd appreciate some help!

    Thanks.

    A question: does your ISP/Internet Service Provider or some other Network require using a Proxy Server?
    Or do they use DHCP or Automatically detect settings?
    dhcp at DuckDuckGo
    I see two items in that block [all of one and part of the second], could be either one causing the problem. Have also seen it with infected computers.
