How do I keep my proxy settings on firefox from changing?

  1. recently, my proxy setting on firefox that i get in the options menu, keep changing. Each time i use the internet, i have to manually change the settings to no proxy in order for the internet to work. The same thing happens on internet explorer as well. Is there a way i can keep my settings on no proxy permanently or until i change them? and what is the program causing this problem?

    symptom imples some virus is active; your settings should not change in the browser.

    If you use ipconfig /release | /renew, the settings of TCP should change, but not the browser.

    so is there any solution to my problem? some of my programs do not work because of the proxy settings being changed. Google chrome doesnt work either. Vuze cant connect to the internet either.. Any solutions or do i have to deal with it?
