I have my office workstation where some script is running in the background and changes the proxy setting to some pre-defined value which I don't want to use. I have to check the proxy setting every time I open the browser and change it to the value I want. Is there any way I could prevent the automatic change by restricting permissions to some keys in the registry or something like that?

I guess the script runs under an administrator account, so you cannot prevent it from changing the proxy settings. What you could do:
If your policies allow to change proxies, you should be allowed to turn the script off, if changing proxies is the only thing it does.
