Removing a Proxy Virus (127.0.0.1:8080) from Windows 10

For anyone who wants to make a .reg:

please replace ######## with your own directory.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
“ProxyEnable”=dword:00000000
“ProxyOverride”=-
“ProxyServer”=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
“ProxyEnable”=dword:00000000
“ProxyOverride”=-
“ProxyServer”=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
“ProxyEnable”=dword:00000000
“ProxyOverride”=-
“ProxyServer”=-

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
“ProxyEnable”=dword:00000000
“ProxyOverride”=-
“ProxyServer”=-

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
“ProxyEnable”=dword:00000000
“ProxyOverride”=-
“ProxyServer”=-

[HKEY_USERS\#############\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
“ProxyEnable”=dword:00000000
“ProxyOverride”=-
“ProxyServer”=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
“ProxySettingsPerUser”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
“ProxySettingsPerUser”=dword:00000000

I also had the problem of this reset after a restart.

After trying multiple antivirus and malware cleaners. I found Adwcleaner to be the most useful. It removed PUP.Optional.PrxySvrRST, which solved my proxy problem and was undetected by other malware cleaners.
