    I am using a Windows 8 pc that had Fiddler on it and I removed Fiddler.  After removal, I could no longer get on the Internet.  I checked the LAN Settings in Internet Options in IE 10 and found the proxy server set.  I changed the "Use a proxy server..." to Automatically detect settings and clicked Ok, but the change is not saved.  If I reinstall Fiddler and start it I can then get on the Internet.  If I close Fiddler I again cannot get on the Internet.  Is there a procedure I can use to remove Fiddler manually?
    Thank you.

    Hi, Alan--

    Sorry to hear about the trouble you're having!

    If the Internet Explorer proxy settings are not changing properly, there are two possibilities:

    1> You have some other software that is interfering
    2> Your Windows configuration is corrupt.

    For #1, you may have some application (e.g. a security or VPN package) that interferes with the proper setting of the proxy, possibly by making registry keys like "ProxyServer" read-only. To workaround that, you would need to find and disable the offending program.

    For #2, this may be related to a rare bug in the WinINET networking library, whereby it is unable to properly communicate with its broker objects. If IE's Tools > Internet Options > Reset... does not resolve the problem then you should contact Microsoft Support to get more information about how to repair Windows.
