  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.
