Could anyone help me find out the proxy's username + password. I have an Windows XP PC, I know that Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox is using the proxy.

I have tried to look for it in the locations below, with no luck

  • Control panel > Users > Manage my network passwords
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IntelliForms

Any help would be appreciated.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings has the settings you are looking for.

AutoConfigURL contains any auto-config script set by your organization http://proxy.mysite.com/proxy.pac

ProxyServer contains the list of proxies, and their ports: http=proxy.mysite.com:80;https=proxy.mysite.com:80;ftp=proxy.mysite.com:80;gopher=proxy.mysite.com:80;socks=proxy.mysite.com:80
