Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It only seems to work for me with a direct connect.

And i cant find anywhere to set a proxy.

Windows 7 64bit.

As for why... we are in development network that is isolated from the organizations production network. So we just wanted a lightweight virus scanner without having to setup any corporate update server or the like.

In case max's blogspot link breaks...

To get IE proxy settings to apply to other user accounts (which applications may use specifically), enter the following in a command prompt:

proxycfg -u

The -u option copies the proxy settings from the currently logged in user.

In Windows Vista and 7, proxycfg has been deprecated, so use the following instead:

netsh winhttp import proxy ie
