    You obviously don't read my posts with any comprehension skills. Oh well, I gave it a try. "Possible infection"? LMFAO.

    Thanks for trying to help though.

    Hopefully somebody else can supply me with a solution.

    I read your initial post, you keep repeating why you do not want to go to the school IT group, because you are refusing to accept that this problem cannot be fixed over the Internet or by just going on your machine. It has to be done by the IT group for your school Network, because Live Tiles as I stated, will kick back proxy errors if the school has it locked down to not allow certain ports to be used, which the Live Tiles would appear as Malware on the network.

    It is your computer, do as you wish with it. The problem is still going to be there if you keep reloading an image.

    I was going through a similar problem, I had to disable an options in start menu:

    The last option "search online and include web results" must be off.

    Hello

    Almost every time I open the start menu, I get the proxy authentication popup, despite ticking the box save the details. There are also a whole bunch of potential proxy servers which can be connected to (I'm at university), and it randomly selects which one to connect to (as this would be the default for "automatically detect settings" in Internet Options.

    Cortana isn't available in my country, and I've changed the search menu to not use bing to find results. I have no internet-accessing apps pinned to start. Why is it constantly trying to access the internet? Why won't it save my details after the first login despite it trying to access the same proxy? Maybe too many proxy requests lined up after each other?

    Am I the only person frustrated by this issue? Proxies are annoying enough without Win10's start menu!

    Thanks, although mine was off the whole time. I haven't had any issues for a while so I wonder if some cumulative update didn't fix it.

    You can disable SearchUI.exe in firewall rules (forbid Cortana connect to proxy on menu show)
