When I click on my proxy settings in the control panel, while I can toggle the 'use a proxy server' switch, the change is not saved! I wish to turn the item off as it causing a huge headache. No browser can connect to the proxy server, because the proxy server doesn't exist! So I wish to turn it off so I can connect to the internet. So I turn the switch off, I click on another menu item, come back and it's still turned on. Nothing I change in the proxy pane (Automatically detect settings, use setup script) is saved! Meanwhile if I go on Airplane mode I can toggle bluetooth (for example) and the change is saved.
The Registry permissions seem to all be in order here. I'm banging my head against a wall. What is going on? Avast says no viruses and yet it seems like something is purposely forcing my proxy settings on.
