Basically, last night I had downloaded something "dodgey", and uninstalled it straight away. The minute I opened it I could tell something wasn't right about it. Ever since, I haven't been able to play my favorite game "Intruder". The fix would be to change the settings on Internet Explorer to automatically detect proxy settings, I know because when I changed it I was able to play the game. However, when I close the internet options menu on Internet Explorer, the proxy settings get put back onto something else. I have a feeling that whatever it was that I had downloaded, has left something on my computer.

Hello KyleSwan, 
Which software did you install and promptly uninstall? Where did you install it from (no URLs please)? Please run the following diagnostic scans so we can get a closer look at your system.
