I'm having this issue with my Windows 7 installation since a while ago, maybe it's because of a virus, I don't know for sure. The thing is, that the value of the registry key
proxysettingsperuser is always on 0, this leads to Firefox to refuse web certificates on every single website and I can't browse the web. Every time I change it manually to "1" it always goes back to zero when I restart the computer and it's a cumbersome to always have to go to the registry to change it back to 1 so I can browse normally with Firefox. Is there a service or a program or another registry key doing this thing??? did I catch a virus or something??
these are the particular keys that I'm talking about
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings] "ProxySettingsPerUser"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings] "ProxySettingsPerUser"=dword:00000000
edit: These keys makes me unable to change the proxy settings in the control panel and make browsers to act weird. I've never made any changes to the proxy configuration, and I'm certainly the admin of this machine.
