Do you mean your lan settings are on auto detect? You shouldn't have anything proxy related enabled unless you're using a proxy server.

You need to reboot in safe mode and use another computer to get on the net to walk you through removing the trojan. Turn off auto proxy and then go in and remove some registry edits and programs that are designed to keep turning it back on.


And stop downloading porn.

The virus is removed I did it through the safe mode, and to the last part I can't.

What hmbre said. Proxy being enabled will stop you in your tracks.
